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] before 6p.m. on Tuesday 30th March.

This year the CSC received a record 250 nominations in 16 different categories for the Society of the Year Awards. This is an astonishing accomplishment given the fact that no activity took place on campus.

TCD owes each committee a huge debt of gratitude for safeguarding our students’ mental health and our society communities in this past year, and it would be amazing if you could come and show your appreciation.
