The National Econometricians Day (in Dutch: Landelijke Econometristen Dag, abbreviated as LED) is a yearly recruitment event for all 3rd year and older econometrics students in the Netherlands. Every year, one of the econometrics associations in the Netherlands is responsible for the organisation of this event. FAECTOR will organise the LED in February 2020, meaning that the LED committee will be recruited in January 2019. For more information about the LED you can visit the LED website.
As you can probably imagine, a lot of preparation is needed to make this day happen. The responsibility for this will be given to a group of six students who will form the next LED committee. The workload will be higher than for other committees at FAECTOR. From the beginning onwards there will be weekly meetings of a couple of hours and this workload will gently increase to a fulltime month in January. Here is an overview of the different positions within the LED committee. Note that this is a short overview and that we are happy to inform you on the details in person.
As a chairman your main tasks are keeping the general overview, preparing and leading the meetings, providing updates to the supervisory boards and arranging the speakers.
As a secretary and PR person you are responsible for the enrolments to the LED 2020, the website, all social media channels, the promotional plan and all promotional materials. You will definitely be an expert in InDesign after this year!

event, the budget is extremely comprehensive and therefore extra exiting to work with.
