Every year, the FSA organises 20 different career events. Every event organised by the FSA requires enthusiastic committee members. As a member within an FSA committee you have the opportunity to gain professional experience in multiple ways. Some benefits of being a committee member are:
Being a committee member provides ample opportunities to develop your personal and professional skills. Because all FSA committees are relatively small, you will have a lot of responsibility. This gives you the freedom to give a personal twist to the project you are working on.
You will receive trainings from companies such as Van Lanschot Kempen, PwC and Deloitte. Additionally, tailor-made trainings are provided to gain experience and master useful tools, such as working with Excel and furthering presentation and acquisition skills.
Resumé and Network building
Get in touch with motivated fellow students and an alumni network made up of more than 800 former FSA members, many of whom now work at renowned companies. You also have the opportunity to get in contact with recruiters from large companies. Naturally, being a part of a committee within the largest financial study association in the Netherlands is an excellent addition to your resumé.
You will be able to participate in the activities organised for committee members throughout the year. These activities include our monthly drinks and different development days. Moreover, two committee member days a year will be organised and you can attend the annual skiing holiday.

If you are interested in being a part of an FSA committee, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be invited for an orientation meeting, during which the different possibilities of involvement within the FSA will be discussed.
After the orientation meeting an interview will take place with two members of the board.
All applicants will hear before September 1st whether they have been selected for a committee.
