After the election we allocated the positions within the student council. Our charter states that we should have two Speakers, two Treasurers, two Project Managers, two persons in charge of the initiatives, one IT Manager and one person responsible for our communications.
The two speakers run the Student Council and are responsible that all work gets done. This means that you are going through dozens of emails and enquiries each week finding out whether these are of importance or not. Students and faculty as well as businesses and organizations are contacting us, asking for advice, support or are just suggesting new ideas.
The two Project Managers plan and realize the projects and events on campus. This includes the parties and “chill & grills” in cooperation with FS Event, the “Hello for Beginners-Day (HfB-Day)”, the “Nacht der Wissenschaft / Night of science” as well as smaller projects with the purpose of increasing the quality of your time at Frankfurt School.
Increasingly important become the two persons in charge of the initiatives. Therefore we topped up this position with a third person and integrated communication into their set of responsibilities. We strongly believe that this is essential to serve our growing network of initiatives and strengthen our communication with the students. Also, we are looking forward to changes regarding the social credit point system over the summer.
Within the first month we reformed our Treasury department. The two treasurers will not be using the old, slow and hardly controllable way over manual bank transfers with a separate account anymore. The StuCo now possesses a cost center of Frankfurt School and all payments as well as our annual financial statement will be processed by the Frankfurt School accounting system. The entire reimbursement process and the way how invoices are treated became faster, safer and after all more comprehensible for the Supervisory Board.
Last but not least, we have our IT department which is responsible for Facebook groups such as FS Students and FS Wohnungsbörse, the FS StuCo Facebook account, the Google drive folders as well as any IT related problems or wishes. During the last weeks we were not only pushing for a feedback poll regarding our new Online campus, we also doubled your storage capacity in the “@fs-students.de” mail accounts.
