Yeah, I guess that should be the 26th.

Hi there.

The AGM is indeed on March 26th. This has now been corrected in the article.

Only CGCUer's?

No, you don't have to be an engineer. You do have to have written for Live! in the last 12 months though.

Looking at your constitution (http://www.union.ic.ac.uk/sac/admin/docs/616_con.doc) it doesn't say you have to have written for Live to be able to stand.

Wrong constitution. That is old, old old, old, old. (Even before Ashley Brown took over... that's old!)

So where is it?

Good point.

Ash?

I wish I knew. I was there when it was passed but I can't find a copy in my email or anywhere else.

The main change was that a member of the club was defined as being an Imperial College student who had written for Live! or Guildsheet...

So is the consitution in your head. It would be unfair to write a new one. Can you just leave it as the one we know.

Why not ask the Court to rule? They can give you a constitution! ;)

13. Hmm.

"It would be unfair to write a new one. Can you just leave it as the one we know."

Not if it was passed by a general meeting. You'd have to table the old constitution as a new constitution at this AGM, and move to delay the elections until it had been passed by CAC/Exec/whoever it is now.

Alternatively you could just write an article for Live! today, hardly a big ask if you want to be editor next year...

But now they could just make up a consitution and lie about it. Not that I think they would.

Mar 24 2009 17:15
 

In that case someobody lied to Ashley and I as these were the rules that we were both elected by. It would all seem a bit elaborate to make up though. If it makes everyone happy I'll present a new constiution to the AGM on Thursday but I'd rather do my essays. Any volunteers to write a new constitution?

I'm expecting no more from this year's incumbents than was expected of myself and Ashley before our elections. However, I trust the electorate so if any sufficient hacks want to turn up and question our constitution then I'm happy for them to do so. (Does however bring into question who is allowed to vote at a CGCU Media Group AGM as the old constitution is not clear on this).

SAC has paper copies of constitutions as well as the online ones, could go there and check to see if they have the latest one...
