Greetings SUMC,

Just a reminder that our AGM is coming up *this Friday, 5:30pm, Fulton
House Lecture Room 5 *(there will be signs)! As the most important meeting
of the year, it is your chance to tell us what's been good, what's been bad
and put forward your ideas of how to improve the club for next year. You
will also get the opportunity to vote for the next year's committee! Aside
from all of that, it's also an excuse to hang out with all your climbing
buddies for an evening and have a crazy night out in Tooters before exams
:P I have attached a provisional agenda (which you are free to print out
and bring with you) and the club constitution as any amendments to this
must be voted on in an AGM. Oh, and there will be FREE SNACKS!

Here is the list of positions that are available to stand for, a

meetings and booking accommodation for weekend trips (incl. liaison with
