Dear All,
It's Friday. It's 6.30pm. I'm tired, so you'll be glad to know that this
will be simple. Please forward relevant information to your membership.....

There will be an EGM (Emergency General Meeting) this coming Thursday
(15/12/05) in Faraday A from 6pm. Attendance is not compulsory but important
issues regarding the future of the University and our own Students' Union
will be discussed. The Sabb Team would very much like you to show your
support by being there.

I'm sure those committee members who turned up to the last SGM would agree
that it wasn't as all-bad as that. Very entertaining at some times!?! Those
societies who failed to send a committee member have now been fined and the
money has gone back into the societies' grant account. Fair enough I think
you'll agree.

Sending one person who sits on several different societies' committees to an
SGM is cheating and will not be tolerated. The person who signs for several
societies will only be counted as representing the first society on the list
that they sign, therefore, the others have actually been fined by now. The
whole purpose of this is to increase student participation in the running of
the SU, so if you don't or can't be bothered to turn up and send a mate
instead, don't turn around and have a go at the SU if something you think
should be done hasn't been sorted out.

Several societies (beyond reason) still need training! Please contact John
Follett on 01792 295112 or at johnfollett at swansea-union.co.uk to sort this

The following societies will be blacklisted from using SU facilities and
services (Kopy Shop, Minibus, Bars, etc.,) from the beginning of the next
term due to them not being fully registered as yet (registration form and
membership fees handed/paid in) - my patience has run out, and it's not fair
on the others who play by the rules. If your society is listed below, then
please do what is necessary to correct the situation by the beginning of
next term. This is your warning.

Registration forms:
Real Ale Society
Student Action for Refugees
Students Against War

Membership fees:
Crazy Society
Economics (the amount of membership fees you have banked (£10) tells us that
you do not have enough members (20) to be a proper society)
Film Society
Gwerin Y Gwyr
Irish Society
LAN Cymru
LGBT (the amount of membership fees you have banked (£8) tells us that you
do not have enough members (20) to be a proper society)
Onyx Multicultural Xperience
St.John's Links Society
Meat Eaters Society

Thankyou to those who are sending their budget planners to me
electronically, and also to those sending me their event documents weeks in
advance. Much appreciated.

Thankyou for your cooperation. Have a good one,
