Applications for Student director of Student Services Holdings are open. Person with initiative, ability apply with-in... This part of the meeting had plenty of initials like SSH and IITWU as well as big words and I must admit that I am a Bear of very little brain and big words bother me.
Gerard Couper had nothing to report, nothing to say, Gerald Sharrock was absent, Peter Gilkison hadn't done much either, doesn't sound too good maties. The ones who had the least to report lengthened their reports by piling praise on May Council and the ISC.
Lindy gave a quick report on May Council. She, along with the other Exec members who were there, felt the Victoria delegation had done very well. A large part of Vic's policy had been passed. Peter Gilkison said that Vic was "one of the largest delegations. Well done Lindy... you were a good organiser".
"Good organiser? Yea I say unto you, and more than a good organiser - an uncommon pretty young woman".
Lindy gave a brief outline of new NZUSA plicy and priorities for this coming period. Such things as the Abortion Campaign Bursaries, Student Travel and the Malaysian Student Cutbacks Campaign headed the list.
On the Bursary issue it was decided the National Day of Action (June 15) would go ahead - but without the march.
Steve Underwood informed the meeting that the May Council had been a big splash for the Association and would cost the troops a pretty penny. Something in the region of $1500 or 3,000,000 wine gums or 30,000 small blocks of cheese. He agreed that a big delegation payed worthwhile dividends but thought 14 delegates possibly too many. Lindy said the experience gained by those who went down was a legacy it was only wise to bequeath to the future and a large delegation was also important for a healthy Council.
