The 10 exec members, all of which are paid from $300 to $2000 a year, sent 8 of their number to SRC. All were asked exactly what they had done for the last two months. With some notable exceptions their waffly speeches hardly hid their answer to the question — bugger all. Most astute at avoiding the straight answer were Mark Sainsbury (SRC Coordinator) "there haven't been any SRC's to co-ordinate" and Gerard Cooper (Publications Officer) "let me tell you about a Publications Board meeting".
Some the things that were done in the first two months were the starting off of the assessment campaign (Lindy Cassidy and some other exec members have produced a snappy poster and instituted a class rep system as a buildup to the campaign) and starting off the routine business of the association (manning the enrolment table, helping the orientation controller, getting the catering operation running etc).
The exec members indicated that they are now doing lots of things for us students. For instance, VUWSA Tee-shirts are soon to arrive, as are car-park stickers, and Peter Thrush wants help to organise Easter Tournament "it's at Easter", The City Council has this plan to close down Mount St. which our President has started fighting against although victory is still some way off.
