There are legendary events like the End of the Year BBQ and the Christmas Dinner. However, these take place every year. There is only one event and one only that is so legendary, that it only takes place once every five years. We are talking about the Lustrum, a week full of acitivites, parties and excursions in which the whole association participates. 

To celebrate the 55th anniversary of De Chemische Binding, the Lustrum Committee will organise a lustrum event on and around October 9th 2022. This will be multiple days of various activities. The aim will be to organise activities for around 7 days, but the committee is free to choose how many exactly! The committee is free to choose whatever kind of activities they want to organise, in consultation with the board. It is advised to have a mix of social, career and educational orientated activities to appeal to more people and reflect the association better.

The lustrum will have a theme. Last lustrum it was ‘Light it up’, and before that it was ’Strijd der Elementen’. The theme the committee can of course choose themselves.

The Lustrum Committee has a very large budget. 5000 euros. Each year there is 1000 euros reserved for the next lustrum. This allows the committee to think big and out of the box. Usually, money is a withholding factor, but in the Lustrum Committee, that is much less of a problem. Therefore we want the committee to think creatively. How are you going to use that money?
