Hi again everyone this is going to be a bit of a long email so bear with
The end of the year is coming up on us faster than you may think. This can
mean only one thing, it is time for our AGM ( annual general meeting) where
we will discuss the state of the club, where we would like to see it in the
future and most importantly elect a new committee for the academic year
This will be held on *Friday the 4th of April*, Please come along as
decisions made here will affect the club and how you interact with it over
the coming year.
As i said we will be electing a new committee so I've put together a little
description of each role, just so you guys can have a think about what you
might like to stand for and have a chat to the committee if you want more
information. There are currently 8 members of the committee and all MUST be
friendly, approachable, responsible and organised. I've also provided the
name of the people who currently hold the positions so you know who to talk

(Monday and Thursday nights), day trips and weekend trips. Is the

Responsible for taking, writing up and circulating minutes from committee
meetings and booking accommodation for weekend trips (incl. liaison with
