Update: Congratulations to Phillip Punter – our new vice-president and to Katherine Pugsley – our new tools and safety officer! Commiserations to those who were not elected – we had a number of excellent candidates and some close calls in the voting. Remember that you can stand again at our AGM in the summer.
On Tuesday 28th October, 8pm we will be holding an Emergency General Meeting (EGM) at the Richmond Pub next to the Union. This is due to the departure of two of our committee members at the start of term: vice-president Jimmy Jackson and tools and safety officer Zoe Digby. We will be electing people to refill those the positions. The event will also be a social one two – we might as well make the most of the occasion! Since the Richmond allows people to bring in their own food, we are going to have an ‘indoor picnic’. So take some yummy picnic food and we’ll all have a great evening!
If you are interested in applying for either of these positions please email our president, Jess. If you are unsure you can always decide to run on the day. You must be a BUCG member to run for a position on the committee. Anybody is welcome to apply, whether you’re a first year or a PhD student. You will be expected to give a short speech as to why you think you’d be good in the role you’re applying for. Then the BUCG members will anonymously vote for the new committee members.
Even if you aren’t interested in running for a committee position come along anyway. You can vote for the new committee members (only members can vote) and have a fun time at the pub!
