AGM Week 8

February 05, 2017

Coming up later this term is our Annual General Meeting (AGM), when we elect a brand new committee to be in charge of the society’s day-to-day operations. This is your opportunity to run for a committee position, and take charge.

A large proportion of the current committee members are graduating, so please do consider running!

The AGM will be immediately followed by Board Games and Cake, and is on Friday the 3rd of March, at 18:45, in Room LMB/038X of the Law and Management Building. LMB/038X is none other than the moot court room, which seems to be a great place for a committee election!

To run or vote in elections you need to be a paid member of the society! Membership fee can be paid at the AGM, before running or voting.

The returning officer for this committee election will be Mike O’Dowd, if you have any concerns about the conduct of the election, please contact hack@yusu.org.
