Life Members

Life membership was introduced in 2007 to recognise those who have contributed to the club in an outstanding way.

While not limited to only committee members, they will comprise the majority of life members because of the time and service they put into running the club throughout their time at Curtin.

Inductees are nominated each year by the committee with the office bearers choosing the worthy recipients, current office bearers cannot be nominated.

2019 Inductees

David Jorritsma

David Jorritsma was the President of 2016 and Secretary of 2015. Throughout his time at CEC Dave championed the club to make sure that that the constitution was up to date and aligned with the views of the club. As Secretary he improved committee communication methods by updating them to a more efficient and modern system. Even after he finished his term as President in 2016, Dave remained as an advisor and made himself available to help with the club despite becoming President of two other Curtin societies. He has continued to assist long after graduating, from acting as the returning officer to fostering a better relationship with the Curtin Student Guild and playing an integral part of the CEC’s comedic traditions. When the constitution was re-written in 2019, Dave volunteered to help amend the new changes the executive committee desired. The club would not be what it is today without Dave
