About the Advisory and Supervisory Board

About the Advisory and Supervisory Board

The RvAT solicited and unsolicited advice to the board of KIC. They have weekly informal meetings and are the sparring partner of the board. The RvAT has no executive tasks within the association, but in addition to the advisory role, they also have a monitoring role.

The General Members Meeting (ALV) is the highest body of the association. Below the ALV is the RvAT. The board is ultimately responsible for keeping the association running.

What does the RvAT do?

  • Stimulates ideas from the board
  • actively facilitates the board to realize those ideas
  • checks whether the board adheres to the statutes and the internal regulations
  • Guarantees continuity, even if the board year ends
  • checks and guarantees the financial health of the association (together with the audit committee).

When does the board contact the RvAT?

  • with expenses above € 500,-
  • For decisions that also have consequences for the next years of the board.
  • In case of disagreement within the board
  • During the application procedure (for a new board)
  • In case of problems with the compliance with the policy plan

When should you (as a member) contact the RvAT?

The KIC board is the first point of contact for questions and problems. If you can't come to an agreement with the board, or if you can't discuss something with the board, you can contact the RvAT. Email: rvat@svkic.nl.

"We aspire to a creative and innovative board that is eager to make something of its year. Although this happens under the control of the RvAT, we think it is important that the initiative for governing lies with the board."
