I would be inclined to agree in general, although I have expressed the 
sentiment in the past that I don't mind amendments that edit executive 
roles as much as other amendments.

I've been told that other societies have these roles on their execs. 
Whether or not that means such roles are appropriate for ProgSoc is 
certainly up for debate.

A somewhat recent development (last few years): if a current student 
serves on an Executive Committee at UTS, it will appear on their 
transcript that they have done so. Importantly, only execs get this 
privilege, not liaison officers. While they don't get course credit, 
nonetheless, it is still official and permanent recognition by the 
university -- something that you and I sadly never received for our 
endeavours. Perhaps this is a motivating factor behind the proposals. 
More opportunities to get recognition.

It would be worth asking the current Exec to publish an official 
rationale behind their proposed amendments in any case.

I believe so. Feel free to petition the exec to turn it on.

To judiciously use split infinitives is fine by me...
