Chair’s report (from Dexter)
The SRCF has had a pretty successful year, with good turnouts to events. Freshers’ fair went well -- thanks to Will for organising. The freshers’ squash this year was targeted more towards sysadmin recruitment. We’ve had a couple of hack days over the last year, leading to the control panel release (more details in the sysadmins’ report).
Treasurer’s report (from Charles)
Refer to the Accounts Summary.
Accounts are from February 2017 to February 2018. The last year saw a large increase in balance due to two large donations. We’re fairly well prepared in case of emergencies to buy and replace hardware. Thanks to Third Light for sponsoring the annual dinner, and to OpenMarket for sponsoring the garden party.
Sysadmins’ report (from Richard)
Refer to the Sysadmins’ Report.
Dexter and Richard A are appointed tellers.
- Charles (proposed by Dexter, seconded by Richard A)
Member of the SRCF committee for seven years in various positions, happy to keep on going. Know my war around the SRCF, and knows the roles well. Keen to organise the SRCF’s 20th anniversary dinner.
- Richard W (proposed by Dexter, seconded by Richard A)
New to the SRCF this year. Finding it interesting to have people to code with. Keen to organise more hack days as chair, and work on interesting projects.
Votes: 5 for Charles, 1 for Richard, 1 abstention
Charles is elected Chair.
One nomination: Sam (proposed by Richard A, seconded by Charles)
Handwriting is not illiterate, but will probably be typing anyway. Can listen well, can touch-type. Will interpret the truth by mind of the chair.
Votes: unanimous for Sam
Sam is elected Secretary.
- Edwin (proposed by Dexter, seconded by Charles)
Sysadmin since June last year, unsure how many months that is but spreadsheets can work that out. Adept with spreadsheets. Accounts are looking positive, would be a good idea to see what can be done with donations. Keen to look into new resources such as a new VM server.
- Anik (proposed by Dexter, seconded by Richard W)
Also good at spreadsheets, very cheap, can manage money well.
Votes: 3 for Anik, 2 for Edwin, 2 abstentions
Anik is elected Treasurer.
- David (proposed by Charles, seconded by Sam)
Good at interacting with people, quick with sending/replying to emails, good in general with emailing.
- Paul (proposed by Dexter, seconded by Sam)
Enjoyed the societies fair, likes people in general, can also respond to emails in a timely fashion.
Question for the candidates: Are you both familiar with Paint and GIMP? Yes!
Votes: 4 for David, 3 for Paul
David is elected Publicity Officer.
Closing words (from Charles)
Thanks all for coming, in particular those who ran for committee positions. Those that didn’t make it in, we hope to still see you at other SRCF events. Enjoy the delights that the SRCF has to offer! Garden party will be up next in June, and there’ll be plenty more committee elections next year.
Any other business
The post-AGM curry was once again postponed. We’ll get around to it eventually.
