As you may know, this term we are having our AGM! We need to hold elections, and this is your opportunity to seize power and overthrow the old regime!

The AGM will be immediately followed by HackPub, and is on Friday the 7th of February, at 19:30 in G/001.

To run or vote in elections you need to be a paid member of the society!

The committee positions are as follows:

  • Chair: organises things, worries about attendance, represents the society where needed. In charge of the society.

  • Ordinary Member: has no special roles, but just generally helps out with the running of the society and events. Can’t vote in committee decisions.

    Can be held by any number of people

We’ve started giving Ordinary Members responsibilities, in particular one now maintains the servers. This is optional, but it would be helpful if someone would assume that role.

Furthermore, constitutional amendments can be ratified at the AGM. If you want to propose one, the deadline is NOON on Wednesday the 29th of January.
