Advisory council

This Advisory Council is a body of ex-Board members, mainly advising the current Board, but can also advise (requested or not) on the state of affairs within the association. The RvA is installed at the beginning of the year during the transferal general assembly (OALV), when several ex-Board members take place in the new RvA (Raad van Advies, Dutch for Advisory Council)

Over the course of the academic year, the Board can run into problems and will need to be advised by the RvA, which consists of people that know the association and have experience in leading Mercurius, making them the perfect people to receive guidance from. In demanding situations or official cases, the RvA can be asked to give an official advise. In that case, the RvA will come together to officially advise the current Board. RvA members can, however, also be approached for a short personal advice, which doesn’t need to be official.

Next to the Board, members can also ask the RvA for advice. This usually only happens in extraordinary situations, when a member or a group of members doesn’t agree with the Board or the state of affairs within the association. The RvA is free to decide whether they want to address these issues.

Finally, the members can ask for the involvement of the RvA during a general meeting of members (ALV). The RvA will try to be present at most ALVs, but members can also ask for the RvA’s advice on any Board plans, before they are approved during the ALV.

Financial Auditing Committee (FiCo)

The treasurer is responsible for all financial means of the association. The FiCo, together with the treasurer, will periodically inspect all expenses (cash audit). The most important job of the FiCo is to examine the annual statement of accounts, made by the treasurer. The FiCo can also judge on the financial policy of Mercurius. Before every term, the committee will inspect the budget. Board members are obliged to allow access to all documents necessary. The treasurer can only be discharged when the FiCo has judged and approved the annual statement of accounts.

The FiCo is also installed at the beginning of the year during the general assembly, when several ex-Board members take place in the new FiCo.
