The Faculty Club of... Natalja Macnack
In this section, our members tell something about themselves and why they are members of the Faculty Club. Natalja Macnack is marketing officer at the Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance.
Why I became a member? I was asked years ago by the former club manager, Noor van Haaren. I remember this was during a networking event of the UU Women's Network.
I have been a member for quite a long time now: since October 2006! I was on the Faculty Club programme commission for a few more years. Together with the other commission members, I was able to organise many wonderful activities.
My fondest memories are of the pleasant lunches with international guests. But I also have fond memories of the successful Midsummernight parties.
What do you do in daily life?
A lot haha ... But to keep it clear: in daily life I work at the Communication & Marketing department of the Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance. There I am mainly involved in educational marketing. In addition, with my own company Macnack Verbindt I connect colorful groups, organisations or individuals through services in the field of event programming, PR/Marketing and social media. Mostly for the theater and cultural sector and freelancers.
Most memorable about the Faculty Club?
My best memories are the pleasant lunches with international guests when I worked for the International Office. But I also have fond memories of the successful Midsummernight parties.
What are you looking forward to the most?
I look forward, like many, to having live interactions again. Humans are not made to only work at home, stay at a distance from each other and live largely online. Travel is also something I'm really looking forward to. I'm extra happy about the trips I've been able to take for the pandemic.
Any suggestions for activities for the Faculty Club?
The Faculty Club already does a lot and also the audience is slowly changing in various areas. It's nice to see. One activity I would like to suggest is to return to the city walk "Traces of slavery in Utrecht". The walk also includes university buildings. We organised that walk when I was on the program commission at the time and it was booked up immediately. I find it interesting and educational how you can look at buildings and your own city with a different perspective.
