It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of our Honorary Member Wim Dik. Wim Dik passed away at the age of 83 on Sunday 19 June 2022.
In October 2005, Wim Dik was asked to become an Honorary Member of the Association because of his great commitment to the association. Wim Dik has been essential to the success of the Management Workshops during his time as professor of Management of ICT-oriented organisations at the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management. Dik has always offered to help organise the Management Event (the new name of the Management Workshops since 2013-2014), and at the time he had several lunches with the Business Committee during which they brainstormed about themes and speakers, among other things. Because of his very large network and several important public functions and positions at important companies, he has managed to attract great speakers to the faculty in the past. This has helped S.V.T.B. Curius as a study association to quickly and succesfully get on the map within the corporate world.
Since 2017 Wim Dik has become an Emeritus Honorary Member, but he has also indicated that he will always keep a heart for Curius and would still like to offer help when needed, as a source of information and as individual support. We are still very grateful to Wim for this.
Our sympathy goes to his wife, family and everyone dear to him.
