Beware the Ides of March!

Are we planning on removing the current committee by assassination?

Unless assassinated or similar, I shall have you make me Dictatoree of Minutes for Life! Or at least one more year. I'm already working on a change of constitution…

I'll be attempting to retain my position as Master of the Web. Also, how big an issue is it if I can't get the time off work to go the the AGM?

From past experience, it's only a problem if there is a strong candidate standing against you (Hi Tom), and then only because you don't become elected, not because of formalities.

I think you'll be ok because you've got a legit reason not to be there, but I'd recommend providing a written (or recorded) message.

Location
Building 34, Room 2003

Elections
Currently I'm aware of the following candidates:

President: Gereon Kaiping, Leo Allen
Secretary: Gereon Kaiping, Michael Clarke
Treasurer: Drew Morton, Ben Hall
Vice President: Leo Allen
Events Fairy: Ben Hall
CCG Representative: Sophie Hunt, Sean Knowelden
Webmaster: David Young

Have I got all surnames right? I only noted first names, so I had to guess which ones were meant.
If anyone else wants to stand, tell me (by mail, pm or in person) and make sure I have your name written down. I'll need to know by Friday evening.

Other stuff
We'd like to add the CCG representative and clean up the constitution. We'll probably have a draft based on the current template from SUSU with the changes we need for our purposes, for the AGM to discuss and decide. I'll put that draft here once the democracy people of SUSU have told me that we haven't broken anything in the process of changing.

While I still don't have an answer from SUSU's democracy team, I nonetheless want to give you a preview of our suggested constitution changes. Here you can see two suggestions for our constitution. One is based on our current constitution with some minimal changes for cleaning up, and a CCG representative added. The other one is based on the current template in SUSU.org's howto section, with the changes going further than suggested changes marked in yellow. (In many places, “the members” is marked. This is because it did state “the full members” in the template, but we want to keep our oldtimers = “associated members” involved.)
