Live! is gearing up for the end of the year. Which means it is time to elect a new Editor! Think you've got what it takes? Apply within...
Live! needs you...

It's that time of year again and now we've elected our new Sabbatical and Faculty Union Teams we're going to need somebody to keep them on their toes next year.

If you want to be part of an award-winning team who cover news on everything in the Higher Education Forum from Student Activisim to Financial Misdemeaners; Elections to Events; Union Gossip and scandals then come along to find out how. There are many different ways of getting involved in Live! through Serious Reporting and Hard Hitting News, Opinion Pieces, Interviews, Video Features, Comedy and Spoof articles and much more!

In the last year Live!'s top contributers have been:

  • Ashley Brown, 94 articles

  • Andrew Holland, 20 articles
  • Lawrence Weetman, 13 articles
  • Milli Begum, 3 articles

Many other writers have submitted one off reviews and features such as student run concerts and plays, book reviews and visits to art exhibits.

The Live! AGM is on Thursday 26th March at 18:00 in the Guild's Office, Level 3 Mechanical Engineering. This is your chance grill the candidates and find out who is going to be taking the helm next year. If you have contributed to Live! in the last 12 months you are also eligible to vote and stand.

Isnt thursday 19th march yesterday...?

Mar 20 2009 23:18

Yeah, I guess that should be the 26th.

Mar 21 2009 13:49

Hi there.

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


Mar 23 2009 12:11

Only CGCUer's?

Mar 23 2009 12:35

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 ( it doesn't say you have to have written for Live to be able to stand.

Mar 23 2009 13:45

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

So where is it?

Mar 23 2009 18:22

Good point.


Mar 23 2009 20:53

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...

Mar 27 2009 01:57

Did lawrence get it then?

18. Milli   
Mar 27 2009 02:00

Yeah he did

Mar 27 2009 12:27
