AGM + Free Pizza

Starts Wed 5th Oct 2022 at 19:00
Ends at 21:00
Cost FREE
Max 45 attendees
Type IN-PERSON Event

Location: SG20 (Schuman Building Main Floor)

Hello All,

Hope you are all having a good weekend. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances last week, we were unable to host our AGM. However we will be hosting this Wednesday instead! It will start at 7:00pm and will be taking place in the Schuman Building (The Building connected off from Kemmy Business School, the entrance is behind the metal statue) in SG20. Make sure to come along, even if you do not want to join committee, as there will be free pizza for everyone present! Below will be an overview of all of the committee roles on offer:

The committee is split into three main groups; Core, non-Core and then the Skynet team.

The Skynet team is the only thing that we don’t vote on and is made of the Senior admin and some Junior admins.  

The Core positions include President, Secretary and the Treasurer. 

President - The main contact point for outside the society and liaise with C&S and head of the society. Also Chairs meetings and sets the agenda 

Secretary - Takes minutes at meetings and distributes to members. Helps out with the day to day running of the society and at events. 

Treasurer - In charge of the finances of the Society and makes sure the budget is made for the end of the year.  

We’d recommend previous committee members to go for these as previous experience is vital for the core roles of the committee. So if you’re new to Clubs and Societies committees then the other roles are great roles to gain initial experiences. The rest of the committee positions are the non-core positions. 

Events - help organise events and make sure people are there to help bring equipment to events and that a room is booked. 

PRO - Emails, Instagram posts, make posters, take pictures 

PRO Assistant - Emails, Instagram posts, make posters, take pictures 

Programming and Technology - Organise technical events eg. Code-off 

Health and Safety and Equipment officer - keep stock of our equipment and keep an eye on the society's health and safety at events.  

First Year Rep - Engage with first years and bring concerns to the committee 

These are all great roles to gain experience and to have a big impact on the running of the society with not a lot of work required. The people that held these roles will also give a quick summary of what the role involved. 

We look forward to seeing as many of ye as possible at the event.

Dr. Richard Stallman talk 10th

Ends at 21:00
Cost FREE
Type VIRTUAL Event

We will be hosting an online talk with Dr. Richard Stallman (rms) on A Free Digital Society at 7PM on Wednesday the 10th of March.

Dr.Richard Stallman is the founder of the Free Software Foundation and the head developer of the GNU Operating System (gnu.org). His work focuses on Free Software, that is, software that is free as in you have the freedom to use the software however you want, modify it and redistribute it (think of the French/Spanish word libre) and not necessarily free as in free of charge (i.e. the word gratis).

The talk will open with the moral issue of free software and why nonfree programs are unjust, then go on to other forms of widespread digital injustice that damage our freedom and privacy.

In the spirit of Free Software, we must stream this talk on our own server using Icecast, so the maximum number of viewers we can have will be limited by our connection. If you know a group of people who want to watch, you could get into a call on Jitsi Meet (https://meet.jit.si/) and have one person share the video and audio with the others. If the stream has reached capacity, you will still be able to watch a recording later.

The link is https://skynet.ie/stallmantalk/ and it will redirect you to the stream at 7pm Wednesday the 10th of March. You may need to press play if it doesn't automatically start after a few seconds, if you have trouble watching try refreshing. If you still have trouble try a different browser. 
If you still have issues you can open this file https://skynet.ie/stallmantalk/stream.webm.m3u in windows media player or VLC to watch the stream, it should work much better but the file won't work till 7pm on the 10th.

If you have any questions you would like us to ask Richard Stallman during this talk, please email us at talks@skynet.ie with your question and include "rms question" or "Richard Stallman question" in the subject line. Also feel free to contact any committee member directly.

We'll be having a Zoom call and you'll have a chance to show off your work from home/gaming setup to other members in whichever format you prefer (live on video through your phone, prerecorded video, just pictures, even a powerpoint if you want). Once everyone is finished showing off, there will be a vote and those with the best setups will win Just Eat vouchers! 

Make sure to join our Discord and tell us if you're interested in showing off your setup by filling out the following form: https://forms.gle/9PJ9kKGqob3nGBFo6.
If you don't tell us, this won't disqualify you, but we would ideally like a rough idea of how many people are interested. 

Even if you won't be showing off, feel free to join us for some craic and possibly some games like Skribbl, if people are done with their setups earlier than expected.

Time: 7pm

 

There are ten committee positions up for grabs, listed below.

President, Secretary, Treasurer are considered “core” positions and should be held by those with prior compsoc committee experience.

We highly recommend any newcomers especially first years to consider taking up any of the other seven positions.

This is a great opportunity to learn new skills and get involved in the organising of events.

Having held a position on the committee also looks great on a CV (Especially for Co-Op) and can lead to even better positions for next year.

We will provide training and support where required for anyone who joins committee so don't be worried about not having experience or anything like that.

Can’t wait to have you on board!
