International Club AGM

International Club AGM

The International Club AGM was held on Monday, March 28 when the new committee was elected. President Mike Edwards summarised last year's activities and made suggestions for future activities—more lectures on international affairs and overseas countries, discussion groups, social evenings, and an international dinner or picnic.

Members suggested an international song and dance evening, a barbecue, and if possible, lectures by Sir Carl Berendsen, and representatives from the legations for India, Pakistan and USSR. The committee will be handling the "hospitality scheme" for helping travelling students both here and abroad.

Meetings will be well advertised and everyone is welcome, especially new members from overseas, as one of the club's main purposes is to give them an opportunity to make friends here. Last year there were over 20 nations represented, we hope this year there will be more.

Officers elected for the coming year are:—
  • President: Mike Edwards (England).
  • Vice-Presidents: Natasha Tver (Russia), Sumer Singh (Fiji).
  • Secretary-Treasurer: Helen Rait (N.Z.).
  • Committee: George Kool (Malaya), Conor McBride (Ireland), John Dur-and (England), Patricia Adams, Fred Wade, Byron Callingham (all N.Z.).
