2014-15 Plans, Part 1

April 1, 2014 in information, main by Rob Hallam

Hi everyone.

I wanted to express some my plans for next year, so that everyone is up-to-speed and on-board with what will be happening. There are a lot of changes coming, so it’s best that everyone is well-informed.

A typical Ruth pose

Our wonderful president for the year 2013-14, Ruth. We are very fortunate she used her divine powers only for good. Many others have not been so lucky.

But first it is only fair that I say thank you to Ruth. She has been with us through thick and thin, from her days as campaigns officer where she plotted a coup to overthrow the university senate and replace them with CFCI-friendly representatives; to her presidental year, where she initiated contacts and connections with over seven hundred different clubs, societies and external organisations. Her iron rule of “nobody leaves a committee meeting until they’ve submitted ten workable proposals for this week” was at times harsh and enforced through sticky notes but it was necessary to keep the committee in line.

Ruth has kindly agreed to return next year as an honorary representative with a remit to enforce order at our often rowdy and unrestrained weekly meetings.

Before I actually describe the changes I want to reassure everyone that all will be entitled to a fair say in this. To that end, it was agreed that anyone wishing to feed back on any aspect of the changes should complete a small feedback sheet with the following questions:

Feedback Sheet (#280747) – 2 A4 pages

  1. Name
  2. Age
  3. Student Number
  4. National Insurance Number
  5. College
  6. House
  7. Rating of previous year (scale 1-10)
  8. Predieted rating of forthcoming year (scale 1-10)
  9. Rating of current committee (scale 1-10)
  10. Rating of current government (scale 1-10)
  11. Feedback on changes (min. 1000 words)
  12. Proposed amendments (max 10 words)
  13. Drawing of ‘ideal’ weekly Amnesty meeting (1 side of A4)
  14. Proposal for GU Amnesty Theme Song* (min. 3 minutes)

*Music sheets available on request from your nearest music shop

In the interest of a fair process we are regrettably unable to consider feedback from an incomplete sheet. If you have any issues with this, please fill out ‘Feedback Sheet #280747’ in full explaining why.

Hopefully this reassures everyone that the changes are the result of a fair and democratic process. More information to follow.
