Committees

On this page you can find Babylon’s committees. At the beginning of each year, most of the committees are assembled with members of the association. Being an ‘active member’, which means that you are taking part in a committee, has several advantages. For instance, it is a good way of developing your organisational skills. Furthermore, you can put it on your CV, which proves that you’ve done extracurricular activities during your life as a CIS student. This may be really helpful in your future career!

Below you can find all Babylons’ committees.
