UCC’s Societies Executive has announced it is seeking to elect two new Ordinary committee members following the resignations of Sean and Clodagh from their respective positions as Training Officer and Community Engagement Officer.
When asked about his decision to resign, Sean made the following comments: “Following reflection over Christmas, I submitted my resignation, which was accepted early in the new year. I made this decision for personal reasons, largely because of the difficulties in juggling the position with being in Fourth Year Medicine, including being on placement in hospital for the remainder of the academic year. I decided this was the right time as the busiest period for my portfolio (Training) had passed, and there would be sufficient time for the Executive to replace me early into the new semester. I would like to wish the Executive, including the new members, the best of luck for the remainder of the year.”
The Societies Executive, as a result of the resignations, have announced that due to fact the resignations have come before second semester, that the filling of the positions will be by co-option. The positions are available to any registered UCC student (unless they are currently a Chairperson or Finance Officer of a UCC society). Interviews are scheduled to take place this week, with applications for the positions closing on Sunday. Anyone with queries or questions is advised to contact the Societies Guild President, Pat McCarthy, at President@uccsocieties.ie, or any other members of the Societies Executive. The President of UCC societies will for the time being be the acting rep for the Social and Activism, Debating and Political Groups.
UPDATE: The OCMs that have been appointed to the Societies Guild Executive are Alice Moloney and Beth Mallen.
