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.

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!

CSC AGM 2021


agm_imageThe Executive Committee of the CSC is made up of Officers and the Executive. All twelve of these positions will be elected on the 6th April at 6pm. Click to view AGM 

The four Officers are the Chairperson, Treasurer, Secretary and the Amenities Officer and the eight other positions on the committee are Executive members. 

 

The responsibilities of the Officers are as follows:
Chairperson: Oversees the running of the committee and represents societies at the upper echelons of TCD. 
Treasurer: Oversees the accounts and the grantmaking process, consults and advises societies on all things income and expenditure. 
Secretary: Advises and oversees all things constitutional, supports societies with the running of general meetings and committee activities. 
Amenities Officer: Works on behalf of societies to support and develop the facilities available to them. Think kettles, microwaves and bookable spaces. 

The eight Executive members then function as what you could refer to as ordinary committee members. They decide on grant applications for societies, they approve new society applications and decide on and advise on every major decision and activity the CSC undertakes. In effect, they’re the lifeblood of the committee. If you are interested in running please get in touch Nominations must be signed by the treasurers of two fully recognised sodalities or associations, and nominations must be emailed to [email protected]c.tcd.ie before 6p.m. on Tuesday 30th March.
