What happened during the Members Training Day?
On October 1st, 2022 we had our first MBT (Members Training Day) of this academic year. It
was created with the purpose to have a welcoming introduction and team building for all our
new and not-so-new members and volunteers. We kicked it off with a brief introduction, accompanied by interactive games and nice conversations. We encouraged our volunteers and
members to get to know each other and receive more insights about what each committee’s
tasks are and the projects that we are all already looking forward to and cannot wait to share
What happened during our General Meeting?

overview of the upcoming months. The meeting was followed by a nice and cosy dinner at one
of our partners’ café Sam Sam, located in the heart of Breda where all our current board members, coordinators and volunteers gathered together. Safe to say, it was a time well spent
because we managed to combine the fun part with the professional side of what we do. We
have all expanded our connections and contributed to the welcoming atmosphere. Thus, we
