Reminders and Updates

  1. Game Design collab was just around the corner. It happened that very weekend.
  2. Deadline for membership verification had passed and now so too has the deadline for constitution changing motions.
  3. AGM and Tabletop weekend are soon!
  4. You can now donate to the soc.

1. SU Elections

A brief discussion was held on the new society endorsements, as it had been brought up already amongst some of the exec and an official stance on them was required. As the endorsements had been freshly introduced this year without any support from the rest of the SU or the general membership, as well as the fact that most of us felt it made elections more of a popularity vote than it already was, a large majority of the exec argued we shouldn't make use of this new law.

A few other questions were asked, whose answers can be found in the slides. A vote was then held for or against society endorsements. There were 12 against and 2 abstain, which reaffirmed the thoughts which been said privately.

2. Quiz

The next quiz is Friday week 9. If you want to participate in this nerdy goodness, y'all better be there. We've got our usual 6 rounds and a bonus ran by:
- James
- Thomas
- Sol
- Benji
- Jamie
- Anakin
- Alex (bonus)

3. AGM

Oh I'm afraid the voting system will be quite operational by the time the AGM arrives.
Yes! It's complete. Many thanks to Thomas and Finnbar for getting that done. Now I just need to organise those slides... Ah, Here they are! What do you mean these are last year's slide?! Oh... Oh, you're right. Damn. Well that's a future Anakin problem.

One last thing. If you've nominated yourself then be sure to send your role priorities to Thomas so they can calibrate the super weapon voting.
