The HUMBUG AGM is our Annual General Meeting. It is held in the month of September. The AGM is where HUMBUG votes for their Exec. Also where members of HUMBUG can learn about what the current Exec have been doing over the year and also where we elect the new Exec. This is the time when valid Financial Members of 3 months standings can vote on a range of agenda items and the Exec positions.
If you don't know what it takes to be in any of the Exec HUMBUG positions or even the non Exec positions then take a look at Exec for a list of Roles, Responsibilities and general Exec information. This should help you come to a conclusion about what position within HUMBUG, both the Exec and Non Exec roles, you want to take. However as you may wait a while as our new Exec has just been elected.
Election and Role Selection
In HUMBUG there are 2 types of roles Exec and the Non Exec Roles. They can both have the same amount of workload however the real difference is that the Exec roles are roles that are voted on by the HUMBUG members at the AGM in accordance with the HUMBUG Constitution while the Non-Exec Roles are delegated by the Exec.
As the AGM has just occurred there are only the Non-Exec Roles on offer. If you're interested in any of the Non-Exec Roles please feel free to state why you might best be suited to these positions, and why, on the General mailing list.
These are as follows:
- President: The top job.
- Secretary: Room bookings.
- Treasurer: Chief Role of all the financial HUMBUG stuff, including keeping an accurate list of financial members.
There will be 2 Non-Exec roles up for grabs which will be placed in the hands of the new Exec to be decided on at the first Exec meeting. These are the Talks Maintainer Role as well as the Event Coordinator role.
- Talks Maintainer: This is a simple job which you organise what talks happen and when. The really big part of this job is to encourage Talks in the first place.
System Administrator: Is responsible for running the SysAdmin group, who maintains this web site, the mailing lists and the machines they run on.
For a more detailed list of the Roles and what required please go to the Exec page.
