FMF activities cancelled, NSFW closed

As you have probably heard, RUG decided to cancel all lectures, exams and events as part of the government's measures against the spread of the Coronavirus until at least April 10th.

Unfortunately, that has consequences for the FMF and its members as well. First of all, the board thinks that it would be in everybody's best interest to cancel all upcoming FMF activities until at least the 10th of April. The FMF room will also be closed.

We will keep you updated about any relevant changes. If you have any questions, you can contact the board via board@fmf.nl. If there is anything urgent, send a WhatsApp message to +31 6 299 293 55.

We hope that you stay healthy and safe!

Kind regards,
61st Board of the FMF

Board Applications Are Open!

Are you interested in being a member of the 62nd board of the FMF? You can apply now by sending your CV and Letter of Motivation to board@fmf.nl! The deadline is the 1st of April, 2020.

Throughout March we were planning to host activities to provide more information on what being a board member is actually all about. Unfortunately, since the university is closed until the 10th of April due to the measures against the spread of the Coronavirus, this will not happen before the application deadline. However, if you have questions or want extra information, you can always email the board and ask. We will be happy to help!

If you know someone else who might be interested, please inform them about this opportunity as well.

We are looking forward to your application!

Kind regards,
The 61st board

Rectificatie

Geachte FMF-leden,

In de ALV-stukken van de GMA van 7 september 2017 hebben wij ons beschuldigend en op ongepaste wijze uitgelaten over FMF-lid Natascha Koelewijn.

Door de Rechtbank Noord Nederland is geoordeeld dat deze uitlatingen (een beschuldiging van een strafbaar feit) onrechtmatig zijn jegens voornoemd lid. Ten onrechte is door FMF inbreuk gemaakt op het recht op de eerbiediging van haar persoonlijke levenssfeer en haar eer en goede naam aangetast. FMF neemt onrechtmatige uitlatingen jegens Natascha Koelewijn hierbij terug.

FMF is door de Rechtbank Noord Nederland veroordeeld om deze rectificatie te plaatsen.

Hoogachtend,
het FMF-bestuur
