for and by student tenants of DUWO
Alexander de Jong
As chairman of Tenants’ Association De Eerste Kamer, I am the face of the association and the first contact point for all external parties, from student caretakers to the Municipality of The Hague. In addition, I ensure that its board continues to function actively, effectively and with integrity. I am no stranger to the tenants’ association – as board member Local affairs, I was responsible for the local relations of the association.
Floortje de la Fosse
As secretary, I am responsible for keeping the records and making reports. I am also the primary contact for tenants, and I make sure that your email or app is answered as soon as possible. In addition, I work on optimizing the local tenant participation. I find it important that the the voices of DUWO-tenants are being heard in a righteous way.
Treasurer + PR
As treasurer, I am responsible for the financial affairs of the association. So my task includes making sure that the money of the association is spent correctly. Besides the financial affairs, I am also responsible for the promotion of De Eerste Kamer, so all 4000+ tenants know how to find us. I keep our members informed by updates via our social media, website and newsletter. It is important that the voices of all tenants are heard.
Van der Knaap Wonen
De Eerste Kamer is professionally supported by Van der Knaap Wonen. The board sees added value in having a permanent legal advisor to strengthen its position in relation to DUWO, both on a local and on an overall level, as de Eerste Kamer works together with the other associations of Leiden, Delft, Amstelveen and Amsterdam. The advisor advises on cooperation with DUWO and provides feedback on proposals. At the request of the board, the advisor can also form or lead larger projects that strengthen De Eerste Kamer.
Erik-Jan van der Knaap
As an external advisor, it is my duty to support and advise tenants’ association De Eerste Kamer professionally and with expertise in order to enable it to make the best possible decisions regarding DUWO’s policy. In addition, I contribute to the professionalisation of the work processes and the coaching of (new) board members.
