The CSC Treasurer, Sam, will be holding office hours each week in the CSC office in House 6 from 10am to 12pm on Mondays and from 1.30pm to 3pm on Tuesdays. This is an opportunity to drop in and have a chat with them about any queries you may have about your society’s finances, the CSC, or whatever it may be.

If these times don’t suit, or if you’d rather not meet in person for whatever reason, you can always email at [email protected] 

 

RUNNING FOR CSC EXECUTIVE


The CSC Michaelmas TGM will be held on Tuesday 13th September.


At this meeting we will be electing a Chairperson, Secretary and a Treasurer.  Please consider running for either of these positions.  It’s a really good way to understand how societies work in College and to help foster the unique extracurricular life that we have here in Trinity.  These positions are voluntary and probably require a time input of a aprox 5 hours per week – you will be fully supported by the three CSC staff, and be part of a great team.  If you have been elected to a society committee this year, you know how much students get out of being involved – why not run as a CSC Officer and make things even better for your peers.  Please get in touch if you want to know more. 

We have sent out nomination forms to the Treasurers of societies – nominations will close at 5p.m. on Tuesday 6th September.

Email [email protected] if you have any questions!

In line with the Government decision (of Wednesday 23 February) and with that of the College, face coverings will no longer be compulsory in Trinity from next Monday, 28 February, apart from in health care settings.  In terms of society activity, this means that there is no longer a requirement for society members to wear a face covering to attend a society event.  However, the College has said that “to continue protecting each other, especially the medically vulnerable”, the wearing of face coverings in its academic settings is recommended.  As an extension of this recommendation, the CSC would advise the wearing of face coverings when in teaching spaces but does not require it.  A society member may attend a society event without a face covering if they wish but equally may wear a face covering if they wish.
