Reading of Minutes

Minutes from 2015 (October) 'A'GM were read and accepted.

Reports from the Executive Committee

President (Jacob)

Events conducted throughout the year:

  • STEMtacular
  • STEM cruise
  • VR talk
  • Programming competition
  • Learn to program at Hatchery

There were no events run in the second semester with the main focus on trying to obtain a room. Reports of possible access to the Software Development Studio. This is a shared space however with a slim possibility of alcohol and server space.

Carlin:​ Past execs have been in contact with the dean, however there has been no further movement.

Tom: ​ There was a small space on level 11 where everything was stored. What is happening now?

Jacob: ​ Items are scattered between storage room on level 9 and the Fortran room near the LDC.

Tom:​ collaboration in terms of finding a space?

Liam:​ Meeting with Paul Vavic and other societies regarding a space although these societies have been met with the same barriers to finding a room.

Jacob:​ Talks of collaboration with Hatchery, however sees the society being taken advantage of. Not a fan of this possibility.

I recommend that the future executives resolve the room issue as soon as possible as that has been the biggest obstacle in creating a feel of a society and building a bridge between alumni and student members.
