Matters Arising

Minutes


1. Elections [Krista]

Krista would like people to help on Sunday elections – counting votes and scrutinizing. She will send an email. Hustings start tonight at half past seven.

2. Voting for Charities [Henry for Aisha]

Aisha has had a meeting with Rose about this. Max has written a formula for dividing charity money based on voting preferences. We passed £20 for the Charities officers to buy refreshments for a consultation in the JCR on this – probably next Wednesday. MD explained the formula. SB explained that we vote on optional charity levies. CW said that we should look at the minutes from three years ago when the charities were voted on individually.

AOB

Richard will look into people uploading their handover packs online.

Termly/Annual reports will be due in Monday of 8th.

Dan Turner is going to buy the Christmas  tree for the JCR. The Dean is fairly opposed to a Christmas event, but we think that we can still manage to have a decorating event with mulled wine and mince pies.

AH said that she thought that the post-elections celebration might make people sad. She wonders if we could not make it into a huge thing. Also maybe we could change the reading out of numbers if people do badly. RM said that he thought that it was important to know numbers. AH said that we could still put them online. AS said that we could just Presidential elections by reading out numbers. For Sundays elections we will trial just reading out names.

RM explained the bins in College: there is a food bin, and then a normal and recycling bin. The normal-and-recycling bin is sorted through, but if there is any human waste in there, everything is lost (ie nothing can be recycled). RM is passing this onto the next E and E. DT recommended that RM email Jo Roadknight about  this.
