🌏 Kia Ora Koutou! 🌏

We would love to extend our invitation to you to attend our annual general meeting on the 26th of October at 4pm in the Geography learning space.

Voting and nominations will be done on the day, but send us a message if you'd like to inquire about any of the 4 positions avaliable and what they entail :)

🩶🩵Some FAQs🩵🩶

Do I have to be a third year to be on the exec? Absolutely not! We would love a range of people this year :)

What does being on the exec entail? Being on the exec means attending a few meetings, helping to organise events, and being representatives of geography at the University/wider community level

Do I have to be doing a geography degree to be on the exec? Nope!! Whilst being an academic club, we love it when people from other disciplines join in, it makes us make better decisions when we cater to more people :) (it does help if you are interested in geography though)
