Annual General Meeting 44 Hilary 2012
Annual General Meeting, Hilary 2012
The meeting was held in St Catz, Arumugan Building, on the 22nd February 2012. It was opened at 18.09. With 15 members in attendance it was declared quorate.
Apologies for absence
Apologies were received from Alex Kavvos (Co-President)
Not much to report, about 6 new members this term, income from a new sponsorship and events were popular (especially the Google one – almost alarmingly so).
Re-registration was accepted, and we'll know early next week if we can use Oxford University in our name.
We've got money from a new sponsorship, the accounts are looking good, and the Nationwide account has been closed.
Closure of Barclays account
Close the £2.76 Barclays account for completion because it was a lot of trouble to get it in Ben's name, and it's only in his at the moment. Passes unopposed.
No other issues.
Election of Officers
Mike Savage nominates Pete York for President, seconded by Sam Lanning.
Pete says he would have fewer talks and more social events, as recommended by Ben. Pete Cawley asks if Pete has any ideas to recruit more non-catz members, Pete replies that he would try to have events outside catz (in the comlab or other colleges, for example).
Ben proposes electing Pete unopposed, all vote in favour except 3 people who abstain.
Pete is elected President.
Pete nominates Sam for Secretary, seconded by Ben.
Sam says he would be good at taking minutes and writing names on lists.
Ben proposes electing Sam unopposed, all vote in favour except 3 people who abstain.
Sam is elected Secretary.
Mike nominates Laura Bengescu for Treasurer, seconded by Sam.
Laura says she'd be a good treasurer because she can use Excel.
Ben proposes electing Laura unopposed, all vote in favour except 3 people who abstain.
Laura is elected Treasurer.
Ben nominates Mike for VP, seconded by Hynek Jemelik.
Mike says VP sounds 'kinda fun' and he would be a good VP because he's a good listener.
Ben proposes electing Mike unopposed, all vote in favour except 2 people who abstain.
Mike is elected VP.
The meeting was closed at 18.36.
