Well, it's that time of the year, and the Compsoc AGM will be coming up.
It'll be held at a yet-to-be-decided restaurant next Thursday; I'll
email about the specific details next week.
More importantly, we are now asking for nominees for the positions of
President, Secretary and Treasurer. The current committee are all
stepping down, and so we need at least one nominee for each position.
If you're interested, or would like to know what each job involves,
there's a somewhat legalese description of them in the Constitution ,
or you can email president@, secretary@ or treasurer@ and ask us to give
a better description!
Nominations should be in by midnight on Weds, 11th March, to
committee(a)ox.compsoc.net, and you should name a proposer and seconder
who will be present at the AGM (if you don't have one, and we know you,
some of the committee will be happy to assist).
Also, some of you noticed our preliminary announcement of Peter Molyneux
coming to talk this week, before everything was confirmed;
unfortunately, he's had to reschedule, but we should be able to get him
in for Trinity Term (so, potential committee members, one speaker is
already pretty much arranged!)
Finally, there's an announcement about the Ig Nobel Tour, which I attach
See you next week!
