Don't Miss Out...
Miranda Van-noorden (Chair)1 month ago

Hey Grey! Hope first term is serving you well and that you are all settled into your new homes.
The first JCR meeting of the term will be on  Sunday 29th October in the dining hall at  8pm.


Taking up positions in the JCR is a great way to get more involved in college life, meet new people and you can even bung it on your CV. So if you are interested in running for any of these roles please contact me to find out more.

Quite a few roles are bye elections due to students graduating, this means that the role needs to be filled but will not be a year long position. 


Husted Roles:

Careers Officer
Is your CV on point? Willing to help promote and organise careers opportunities and events? 

Student Trustee (bye election)
Fancy being the trustee of a charity? 


Motions:
If there is something you think would make Grey a better place, there is no reason why it can't become a reality. 
Some examples from last year:
- oppose renewing Durham's contract with Mitie PLC, a company that runs detention centres criticised for human rights abuses.
- one new pool table for the JCR, to be owned by the JCR and to replace the one currently in use.

The deadline for submitting your nomination form and manifesto to the exec pigeon hole (in the post room) is Wednesday 25th October.  More informtation on submitting a motion can be found under 'Want to Submit a Motion?' tab and how to run for a role can be found under the 'Running for a Position' tab, both on my blog https://greyjcr.com/jcr/blog/chair


Elected Roles:
Unlike husted roles, you do not need to submit anything prior to the meeting just turn up and hust. These roles will be voted on in the meeting, so bring your friends along!

1 LGBT+ Representative
Would you be happy to be a point of contact for LGBT+ students of Grey? Can you publicise LGBT+ events? 

Students Abroad Representative 
Can you represent the interest of students abroad? Are you able to make sure students are still in touch with college when away?

Mature Students' Representative (bye election)
Do you think you can help integrate mature students into college life? Can you represent the interests of mature students?

Commander-in-Chief of the Grey Army 
Think you could be the bastion of Grey College spirit? Do you know all the chants Durham has to offer?

Fancy yourself as a foodie? Want to voice the JCR's opinions on college food?

Vegetarian Rep to the Food Committee
Got the goss on the veggie options? 

4 Ordinary Members of Finance Committee

**Gym memberships**
Ben Firth (FACSO)1 month ago

Just a quick one from me folks.  Gym membership debts still haven't been added to accounts due to some website issues we've been experiencing - we're working to solve this in the next few days.  In the mean time, you should all have gym access if you've inducted!
