Hi, my name is Rogier Hoogeveen. I am the Treasurer of the 55th EFR Board. I am currently 23 years old and grew up in Haarlem. Last year I completed my bachelor in Economics and Business Economics & bachelor Fiscal Economics. In the past I have done the Charity Committee (currently called the Social Responsibility Committee) and the Activities Committee. Of course I really enjoyed my time at EFR as a committee member so I decide to take a break from my studies and develop myself by doing a full-time board year at EFR.
As Treasurer, I am in charge of the financial part of EFR. I started this academic year with making the budget for the forthcoming 12 months. This budget had to be in line with the long-term strategic policy of the association. During the year, I adjust this budget to new expectations of costs and revenues in order to make the right decisions for all projects.
In the end, it is my goal to make sure that every euro spent delivers the maximum benefit to the organization as a whole. After all you can’t spend money twice. This requires me to have a lot of contact with all the different committees and, of course, my board in order to get the most up-to-date information.
Furthermore, I take care of the financial administration and make sure that it is done according to legislation. I am also responsible for timely payment of invoices and debtors and I sign for every single outgoing penny.
As Treasurer, I have affinity with financial figures and I am able to keep a good overview of EFR. I can make strategic decisions and have to stand my ground when needed. This also means I have to be able to say “no” to my fellow board and committee members. I also identify and manage risks when they appear.
