Election Results

The new exec are in:

President – Jon Elmer

Vice President – Luke Williams

Social Sec – Joe Dykes

General Sec – Nick Izzett

Publicity Officer – Andrea Ploutarchou

Treasurer – Chris Williams

Health & Safety Officer – Tom Sutcliffe

Minor changes have been made to the constitution, most notably the position of Events & Media Manager has been replaced by the Publicity Officer. The role now emphasises the publicity and social media presence of the society but no longer entails the managing of events and competitions.

So please come along and meet many other like-mined people from a range of years!

See you Thursday!
