Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 30, No. 1. 1967.
At a recent meeting executive decided to cbange the positions of sports and cultural affairs officers to the elected chairmen of their respective councils. The executive year is also to change and the capping controller will become the social officer.
Electing their representatives
The major effect would be representatives of sports and cultural clubs would be electing their representatives on executive. It is also proposed the association year run from January to December.
This would avoid the disruption which occurs when a member does not return to university and resigns.
The cultural affairs council and the sports council become more responsible for their own financial affairs and each will have its own treasurers and accounts. The association's treasurer retains the financial supervision from his chairmanship of a regularly meeting committee of the trea-turers of the sports council, cultural council, and publications committee.
Consideration of report
These changes were adopted after consideration of the report of the committee on the reorganisation of the administrative structure of the students association set up by the 1965-66 executive.
The proposals passed with three abstentions and one dissent will have to be approved by a special general meeting to be held this term.
