Full-Time NZUSA President?

Full-Time NZUSA President?

NZUSA is gradually coming round to the idea of a paid full-time president. Resident executive has been asked to prepare the necessary constitutional amendments for Easter Council, 1965.

A full time president. Bill Falconer pointed out to Winter Council, could undertake commercial ventures on behalf of NZUSA. Mr. Falconer said that he could run travel schemes at a profit, rent office space and go fund raising. Mr. Moriarty explained that the president of NUS spends 50 per cent of his time going round business men.

Will the wrong sort of person become president?

Mr. Moriarty said that overseas experience has shown that this is not so. He told the delegates that in fact the competition improves the calibre of the president.

The present idea is that the next president elected at Easter Council will be president for eight months. The following president would be the first full time president. His term of office as for succeeding presidents would be for a calendar year.
