A huge thank you to all those of you who came to the AGM last week and
helped elect the new committee for the next year.
Starting in Trinity the committee will be:
* President - Matthew Burke (3rd Year Physics)
* Secretary - Thomas Denney (1st Year Computer Science)
* Treasurer - Christopher Mullender (3rd Year Physics)
I am looking forward to another year on the committee and working
closely with the new members. I also want to give a huge thank you to
our current President Cameron Alsop and Treasurer James Wallis for their
excellent work over the last year; and to Ex Presidents Joe Fowler and
Sam Lanning, their assistance and knowledge has been essential in
running the society.
We have plenty of space on the committee for new roles, so if there are
any positions that you think the society could benefit from having
please let us know by contacting the committee, either by email at
committee(a)ox.compsoc.net, or by finding one us at any of our events.
