Het bestuur is verantwoordelijk voor het draaiende houden van de vereniging. Buiten een voorzitter, secretaris en penningmeester zijn de functies klimcommissaris en materiaalcommissaris standaard bezet bij ESAC. Regelmatig bestaat het bestuur ook uit meer bestuursleden: het bestuur kent dan ook bijvoorbeeld een vicevoorzitter. Het bestuur wisselt jaarlijks, ben je geïnteresseerd in wat het bestuur precies doet en of het wat voor jou is, stuur dan een mailtje naar bestuur@esac.nl. Zij vertellen je graag meer erover! Oud besturen zijn hier te vinden.

Hello everyone! I'm Omar and I started climbing around 5 years ago and have been in love with it since. Therefore, when I started studying at the TU/e, it did not take me long to join the ESAC during the intro of 2019. I’ve been pretty active since and when the opportunity to join the board presented itself, I quickly signed up in hopes to represent you all as the face of the association. I’m a very open and talkative person, so if you have anything to ask me, don’t hesitate to reach out!

Hi, I'm Alicja! I've been climbing for more than 5 years now and, together with cooking, it is my greatest passion. So, naturally, the first thing I did when I was considering going to the TUe was looking for climbing halls and associations in Eindhoven! Similarly to Omar, I joined ESAC in 2019 and he was the one who convinced me to become board this year. Also, I'm from Poland, so my Dutch is not that great. Buuut I'm very open and I understand problems of the internationals, so I'd be glad to help you, if you have any!

Heyhey, I'm Sjoerd, I've been part of the ESAC for three years and climbing for a bit longer.  Ever since I was little I wanted to be a treasurer. This last part was nonsense but i still feel that treasurer is a pretty interesting function. Other things I do in my life include studying electrical engineering, a little bit of running and hoping that the climbing halls will open up again.

Hey everyone! I am Matthew and I only joined ESAC last year, so I am still pretty new here but I am excited and eager to hopefully be part of the board for the year ahead. For as long as I can remember I have always loved the outdoors and exploring nature and whatnot. Be it hiking, camping or climbing I just love it all. Umm yea, I have also been climbing for maybe 6+ years and I love it more each day. And I am really excited to continue more regularly when things get better. Also I am an international student as well so I still need to get around improving my Dutch but that being said, I am a great problem solver(off and on the wall) and I am more than eager to help if need be!

Hi, I’m Laurens, I joined ESAC about 3 years ago and have been very active in the association ever since. When I was little, I would always go to the Alps with my parents (also ESACers). During the summer, we would go climbing and mountaineering; during the winter, we would go skiing.  Because of this, I already knew I wanted to join the ESAC and eventually join the board even before I started studying. I love to go camping, hiking, and being outside. Besides that, I’m also a Scouts leader. I hope to be able to give back to the association that has given me so much over the years.

Hello everyone! I'm Leon, I love skiing, climbing and bouldering as well as being in the mountains in general. I joined the ESAC for tourskiing at the WEBI 2020 (which was incredible), then got quite into bouldering. Climbing followed naturally after that, I enjoy it quite a lot. I grew up in Germany (Dortmund) and came to the TUe 4 years ago for my studies. Now that my bachelor is almost done I'd like to climb a ton and be more socially active. Corona has been pretty bad for climbing weekends and courses, I will try my best to bring them back as soon as possible. Looking forward to long days of climbing and the campfire after!
