Committee Reports

President's Report

  • The president likes to make jokes.
  • We have a lot to learn from the situation.

Vice President's Report

New Room

There were emails sent backwards and forwards between Guild and committee. There was a fairly tight timeline from being able to discuss the opportunity publicly until we had to make a decision, and it was concluded that the new room wasn't a good fit for UCC. The main factors there were the reduced space and moving away from Cameron Hall.

Computer Clubs Collaboration

[FVP] and I attended a meeting with reps from PCS, CSSC, CfC and DSC. We haven't agreed to collaborate on any events yet, but have agreed to keep each other up to date on our events, cross-promote them where relevant and try to minimise clashes.

Tech Talks

Are something I want to get running again, and hope to get some good events. The MWA talk last semester by [AJW] was well attended, hopefully we can recreate that level of interest.

I've got a few talks already marked down, but don't have firm dates for them yet. We're hoping to begin advertising soon.

Group Review

Thank you to everyone who responded. As this was motioned at a general meeting, I figured I should present the results here.
