I’ve been meaning to write about this for a while, but decided that I would wait until I got my first impressions over and done with. As many of you know, I have served as bar bit……… errrr…… social representative for the Computer Science Society 8 of the last 12 months. It did have its good points (and plenty of its bad). However, I am glad to let everyone know that those days are behind me. I am now no longer in charge of running social events, leaving most of my Friday and Saturday nights officially free now. Nope, no more Social Rep Sean, instead, you know the current President of the Computer Science Society.
At this time, I would like you all to hold on to your congratulations at the moment. Early into the term, I have had the following said about society: “At one point society was well respected by the student population, but now it has a bad reputation of not caring”. Harsh words to be sure, but nothing I haven’t actually thought myself.
It is my goal to clean up this reputation to a degree and encourage a greater degree of communication and productiveness between groups and individuals. A serious undertaking to be sure, but someone has to do it, right? I hope that I will prove to be an effective leader and inspire the next generation of productive society members. I do, as always, have a plethora of ideas. How many of them actually get accomplished………… let’s just say I have my hands full.
Society has always been about actually DOING things. In the past, we have managed to do them quite well. With a lot of work (not to mention a degree of luck), we’ll get back onto that track once more (and be worthy of the A level Society of the year award again next year).
