AGM 2016 - Motion Results Summary

There was a fantastic turnout this evening for our Annual General Meeting. Huge thanks to all that showed up. We had over 155 on the sign-in sheets, that's double last year's turnout!

Motion results summary:

- Motion 1 (Changing the academic calendar, move exams before Christmas) passed with an amendment stipulating the need to gather more student input.

- Motion 2 (Bring back our Union) passed, with an amendment which removed the option of exploring collaborative ventures with other institutions.

- Motion 3 (Study skills for college entry third year students) did not pass.

We'll have full reports, photos and videos online tomorrow.
