AGM | MANIFESTOS | AFTERPARTY
By Laura Gibbs on Wednesday 16th February 2022
AGM Announcement + Afterparty Event:
Hi everyone, as some of you already know, at the end of this term we will be holding the annual AGM meeting to vote in the new exec.
The AGM is where we select the new executive committee to run the club for the coming year and reflect on the past year. It's important that as many people attend as possible as it's your chance to influence how the club will be run in the future. The meeting will be held in TLC116 at 13:30 on 16/03/22.
This is your notice to start thinking about applying and start sending in your manifestos! Ideally, you want to submit your manifesto before 10/03/22 so it can be distributed/posted. However, you can run for positions all the way up until the 16th.
You must first ensure that you are a paid club member (subs cost £45- if you are unsure whether you have paid, please contact Matt, our current treasurer, or email [email protected]).
To apply for the exec please email [email protected] with your manifesto (1 A4 side with photos, please keep < 250 words) including why you think you’d be suitable for the role, and mention any future proposals you may have. You will need a proposer and seconder (both must be people not currently doing that role!), whose names must be on your manifesto. You can access the previous year’s manifestos on our website under the ‘Files’ section if you want some ideas of what your manifesto should look like. Manifestos will then be posted on the Facebook page and emailed to all club members if received before the deadline for members to have a look at.
Additionally, you will need to do a short speech during the AGM. You can speak for 2 minutes, detailing why you should get the role, and it will be followed by approximately 5 minutes of questions. You can also still run for a role even if you can't make the AGM!
Roles available this year:
· Kit & Safety Officer
· Welfare Sec
· Trip Sec
· Media Sec
· Social Sec
· Training Officer (Provisional)
· Competition Sec (Provisional)
Not only does it look great on your CV but it's great fun and a genuine pleasure to help run the club. You'll get to have a say in pretty much everything we do as a club, so it's the best way to ensure that we - as a club - keep running, giving you what you want, and having as much fun as possible.
Role Descriptions and Voting:
I'll post a pdf in the next few days detailing each of the roles and provide details about the voting procedure. I'd highly recommend if you are thinking of running for one of them to reach out to the person currently doing the job! Those currently in these roles are listed below:
· Captain – Laura Gibbs
· Vice-Captain – Thomas Simpson
· Trip Sec – Martin Murphy
· Kit & Safety Officer – Joe Osborne
· Treasurer - Matt Keogan
· Welfare Sec – Abigail Allen and Ealish Green
· Media Sec – Sarah Appleby
· Social Sec – Rebecca Clarke
· Competition Sec – Peter Martin
· Training Officer – New role!
The tickets for the AGM Afterparty will open at 20:00 tonight via google form for anyone interested. The private event will take place at Revolution Bar from 19:30-23:00 on 16/03/22. Tickets will cost £16 and included drinks vouchers and buffet-style nibbles. Once you’ve filled out the google form, we will get back to you as soon as possible via email concerning your ticket application. Filling out the form will not guarantee you a place at this event, though will we do everything we can to accommodate numbers and possibly plus ones.

Good luck to anyone considering running! If you have any questions, please reach out.
