Hello everyone, welcome to our board page. My name is Lois and I am the 5th President of Custodia. Last year, I was the chair of the travel committee and I made a lot of good friends and great connections during our trips to Budapest, Berlin & Delft!
For coming year I see a lot of potential and I really hope we will make the best out of it. If you have any questions, suggestions or ideas that you would like to talk about, please let me know via e-mail. Come to our events and hope to see you all soon!
Hi there! My name is Michelle and I am a 24 year old, third year student of Security studies from Rijnsburg. This year will be the second year that I will represent L.S.A. Custodia as Secretary.
The past years I have learned a lot when I was part of the committees and board. Additionally I met some great people at Custodia. Therefore I am pretty excited to be part of this board!
Hi! I am Wessel Jasper and Treasurer at L.S.A. Custodia. I am currently doing the CSM master, having just graduated from Security Studies. Having been in L.S.A. Custodia committees since my first year of studying, I decided to take up the challenge and become Treasurer and Vice-President for Board V. I manage all finances for Custodia, and make sure every penny is wisely spend and generating impact for our members. As Vice-President, I support the President wherever needed, as well as replacing the tasks in case of absence. This year, I plan to increase Custodia’s impact on students as well as future-proofing Custodia. I hope to meet you at one of our events!
Britt van Hanegem
Head of Internal Affairs
Hey everyone, my name is Britt van Hanegem and I am 20 years old. I am currently in my third year of the bachelor security studies which I am enjoying very much. This is also my third year in Custodia, I have been in the sports committee for 2 years and found it incredibly fun. That is also the reason why I decided to apply for board and I am very excited for this year as well. I hope to see our members at our events and to give them the same experience that I have had the last two years!
Thomas van Noort
Head of External Affairs
Hey! I'm Thomas van Noort, 22 years old, and a Crisis Security Management student. Not only did I manage to grow my network and increase my negotiating skills as a part of Custodia, but I also met some people that I'd consider as my best friends. I can't wait to host the best events we possibly could, and to grow our network of partners!
Stijn van 't Land
Head of Master Affairs
Hi everyone. My name is Stijn Willem van 't Land. I am the Head of Master Affairs at L.S.A. Custodia. I'm 26 years old. I am currently studying Crisis & Security Management (Governance of Radicalism, Terrorism & Radicalization track) and have a background as a history teacher. I have no experience in any study associations but as I am incredibly passionate about the master programme's content and figured; why not provide more of the same for students who are equally as passionate? Furthermore, Custodia offers me the chance to become more professional in terms of planning, communication and organization. I feel a big responsibility to cater to our students and making the relationship between the board and our members reciprocal. I'm also always up for a chat about security & geopolitics related topics, endurance sports and music.

The second board of L.S.A. Custodia took over the duties of the first board in May 2019 and
further expanded L.S.A. Custodia in terms of activities, committees and external outreach.
One of the proud moments during this board year was the trip to Kiev, Ukraine – which was
the first ever trip of our study association. During our board term, we saw the association
grow and we are proud of what we have accomplished, even though the pandemic made the
final months of our term quite the challenge.

The first board of L.S.A. Custodia built upon the foundations laid down by a group of
enthusiastic students to establish a study association for the bachelor Security Studies and
the master Crisis and Security Management. In May 2018, L.S.A. Custodia was officially
established and the first board laid down the foundations for the years to come, officially
registering L.S.A. Custodia as an association at the Chamber of Commerce in March 2019.
