Eye on Exec

April 29, 2019

Eye on the Exec April 9 Probably the longest meeting of the year so far, week six saw a jam-packed VUWSA exec meeting.

You are allowed to attend the VUWSA executive meetings. Did you know that? They take place every other Thursday at 6 p.m. in the VUWSA boardroom.

According to the current Constitution, these changes must be confirmed and “posted on the Association notice board ten days before” a General Meeting.

The VUWSA exec meeting last Monday started with the regular protocol of accepting apologies, reviewing the minutes from the previous two meetings, and confirming the items on the agenda — I move that we… does anyone second this… all those in favour… against… abstention. Very official. There was only one correction to be made to […]
