Yet from the foundation of the USO, the orchestra is coordinated by a select group, the council. This group is elected every year, and thus chosen by every member of the orchestra. By doing so, all members (who are in the orchestra for at least one year) of the orchestra have the chance to run for a function in the council.
Do you feel prompted? Don't hesitate to contact a member of the current council!
Our council is composed of following functions:
- Core Board:
- Public Relations
- Animation and Recreation
The current council (2017-2018) is elected in June 2017. We are very proud to present them and their functions.
The chairman keeps order and discipline and makes sure everything runs smoothly. You can contact him with all your questions.
The secretary is responsible for the communication in and between the council and the orchestra. Attendances are notated and he knows everything about all members. Feel free to contact our secretary with all your questions about your possible membership.
The treasurer manages our accounts and bills,
Karen Raeymaekers, Niels De Ridder, Simon Van Eekert
These tough guys make sure that our material (chairs, stage etc.) ends up at the right place in time. You also find them driving the van.
Sarah Kips, Manon Reusens, Liesbeth Geussens, Marjolijn Jamaer
These hard workers take care of both the internal and external communication. Furthermore, they try to attract the audience for our concerts and try to find sponsors.
Animation and Recreation
Louis Dumortier, Arthur Van Gorp, Michael Pinchuk, Astrid Hellings
This team of great boys and girls sees the members of the orchestra not only to play music, but also to make fun by means of all sorts of amusing activities. They are also answerable for the organisation of an external rehearsal trip.
If you have any questions, you may always refer back to council as a whole. You can contact them on firstname.lastname@example.org or you can choose the separate functions, accessible trough the main menu.
