This Next Week

Hello and welcome to the latest article for the PIR Society blog. We hope that you had a great time at our fresher’s events, and that you are all settling into your studies. Here is a quick roundup of the upcoming events we as a society are holding in the next few days.

This coming Thursday, we are holding our Games Night at the Bridge Street Social Club from 19.00 to 21.00 in the evening, where we will have a selection of games for you to enjoy, including Jenga, playing cards, Cards Against Humanity and Uno. As a further incentive, any member who has yet to collect their ATIK, AAA and Vodka Rev cards will be able to do so on the same night! We all look forward to seeing you there!

Also, on the 24th of September we will be holding our EGM and Trips Information Session from 17.30 to 19.30 at NK14 at New Kings. At the EGM, society members will elect our First Year Representative for the Committee. The First Year Representative will represent the views of first year students on the Committee and will provide support to the other Committee members with matters important to the society, as well as contributing to organization and decision making of the society during committee meetings. If you are interested in becoming a candidate for this position, you will have to be a first year student and you have until midnight the 22nd of September to submit your application to our society email address at: pirabdn@gmail.com. Please provide a photograph and a personal statement. You will then provide a brief presentation of yourself and your candidacy at the EGM, before we move on to a vote. We wish all the candidates the very best of luck!

And to coincide with the EGM, we will hold our Trips Information Session, where we will provide the details of the two overseas trips we as a society have planned for this academic year, which will be a trip to Latvia and Estonia in January and to Turkey in April. At the information session, we will go over what we will do whilst there, what the travel arrangements are, and the costs for each trip. We look forward to seeing you all there that evening.

That concludes this blog post. I will provide an update in regards to the latest news in national and global politics in the next few days.
