Yesterday, the candidates for the 53rd FAECTOR board were announced in Beurs! The active members, old boards, boards from other associations and of course the candidates’ friends were present. Around 10 pm, the current president of FAECTOR's board, Thomas Michelotti, proudly presented the candidates:

Once the candidates were presented, Frederique delighted everyone in the room with some statistics. It is the first time in FAECTOR’s history that more than 70% of the board consists of women. Additionally, the treasurer is female (Rosa). The last time this happened, was nine years ago. And last but not least, Frederique only has five female predecessors out of the 52! So this sure is a very unique future board.
The Estimator would like to congratulate all seven of them and wishes them the best of luck in the coming academic year!
