Ohoho how very funny of you to drop by and leave that gem of comedy for us to enjoy. Maybe if you hadn't been such a gawky, wierd and alienating presence in the SCC, you would have got an award. Arrgh, I've had enough of you socially inept, try-hard physics wierdos on Live! - you and Kilian. ditch this bulls**t
Who cares what the standing orders say? Luke does whats best for ACC and if further meetings were deemed not to be of much use then credit to him for not wasting eveyones time. We elect people like Luke to lead the ACC according to what they believe is in their best interests. It is good that in this instance he has taken the ACC standing orders as a guide rather than taking a more pedantic, absolutist approach to his role.
It is about time that people realised that students don't care about constitutions and standing orders. Oh well, as long as a few deluded hacks get to kid each other on that by fiddling with the rules then they are actually making a difference for students then comments like the one above will continue to be made.
Constitutions and standing orders are boring and hacky but necessary. how else can you hold somebody to account for not carrying out their job description if it is not clearly defined? You would complain if the DPFS never dealt with club queries because he is too busy running commercial services and thinks clubs are a waste of time. Or if the ACC treasurer didn't process and write claims just because she thought this was not in the interests of the ACC. Similarly Luke is supposed to carry out the basic tasks required of him which are outlined clearly in standing orders.
I might point out that CSC meetings are important for disseminating information and approving contingency claims. Not holding a CSC meeting means that any club who needs to make a claim for emergency money cannot do so... Luke cannot just award contingency claims as he likes! So if ACC Cricket were to have all their kit stolen whilst at an away match, they'd have no way of claiming contingency for it.
There's a reason behind CSC standing orders requiring monthly CSC meetings - to cater for demands of clubs who have activities at different times of year, and not just those who function during the BUSA season. These standing orders are not made up by deluded hacks with too much time; some thought process goes in to each amendment.
