SPB Screening and Student Conference

November 20, 2012 in main by Martin Lennon

Hi everybody!

The Student Conference was fantastic; I would very highly recommend that you go next year if you can. This year’s was particularly fun though because it saw us presented with our Secret Policeman’s Ball’s second consecutive award for Best Fundraising Event! The trophy is enjoying a brief stay in my flat, but you guys will all get a shot of it at our usual meeting tomorrow at 5pm in Committee Room 1 of the QMU – before we give it to last years President and casualty of the 2012 SPB Catherine.

This Week’s Meeting

It’s the usual tapas style Amnesty meeting this week, we have:

– A presentation on Women’s Rights in Afghanistan to mark International Day for the Eradication of Violence against Women – Committee Room 2 will be decked out with our new graffiti style Conflict Free Glasgow out so that we can get our Conflict minerals campaign video filmed – The merchandise department (Jana) will be making a few Christmas cards and finishing off some tote bags – Nathan will be taking a table writing Christmas cards to prisoners of conscience

Coming Up

Next Week will be our last weekly meeting before the break and we will be having a screening of last year’s award winning Secret Policeman’s Ball in the Williams Room of the John McIntyre Building at 5pm. Come along for some laughs, popcorn and shortly thereafter a trip to the pub and some free food – http://www.facebook.com/events/246908938771566/
