Dear all, my name is Yaël and I would like to introduce myself to you! After being an active member for two years, I wanted to do more for De Chemische Binding. My passion for the association had grown and I decided to apply for a position in the 51st board. After an incredible time as the candidate chairman, I was installed as the chairman of the new board on the 8th of June. This year, I am responsible for the functioning of the whole board and I will be representing the association on numerous occasions. I am looking forward to this amazing year.

Bonjour! My name is Sammie Mulder and I am the Treasurer of the 51st Board of ‘De Chemische Binding’. I will be the one in charge of the association’s money. Also, if your bank account suddenly has a lot less money than expected, it will be me to blame. I’m already looking forward to collecting all the money you have left over at the end of the month! ;)

I’m Becca, the External Affairs and Vice Chair of the 51st board of De CB, and as much as I would love to be Spanish like my surname I’m technically Dutch - although I’ve only lived in the Netherlands since my first year at the RUG, so two years now. My job this year is to keep in contact with companies that sponsor us and to help members think about a career path for their future. To do this I’ll be organising lots of fun excursions, lectures and trainings (often with the help of committees) so keep an eye on the website for upcoming career activities! You can often find me playing Sporcle or Hearthstone in the members room. See you around!

Hobbies: Eating (and Cooking if I have too), Walking, Reading, an (not always so) occasional drink with friends.


My name is Wouter Saat and this year I will be the Educational Affairs of ‘De Chemische Binding’. I am a tall, hairy guy from Rotterdam, known for his grimy sense of humor. In the upcoming year I will be responsible for anything related to education. This means that any question, complaint or idea regarding courses, study programs, professors and grades can be directed at me. No matter how small or big the problem is, I am always willing to help you, though that does not mean I am all seriousness.

Have a great year everybody!
