Today is the Annual General Meeting of the Math Society. So what happens at a General Meeting, you ask. Well, this is your chance to come out and find out what's been going on in the past year, to find out what your MathSoc has accomplished, and to ask those burning questions you have. Reports will be given from each of the Executive, including the financial report. As well, the Bylaw changes made by Council in the past year are up for ratification. The meeting happens at 1:30 pm in the Comfy Lounge.
The government of Ontario has finally announced that Waterloo gets to play in ATOP, but under Waterloo's rules. There will be an increase of 36% in enrolment in Computer Science. This means that we'll be accepting an additional 100 CS frosh per year. We now know the numbers, but there are many questions which are unasked and unanswered. I'll hopefully have more information for you by the next issue.
As I'm sure you already know, MathSoc is sponsoring a Charity Ball to be held on the 12th of November at Fed Hall, to raise money for the K-W Emergency Ward. The evening includes a fabulous dinner and dancing. Tickets are available at the MathSoc Office. I urge all of you to attend; not only is this for a good cause, but this event will be the premier event of the term.
Nominations are now open for the Spring 1999 Exec. These Officers are the: President; Vice-President, Academic; Vice-President, Activities and Services; and Vice-President, Finances. Nominations will be open until the 13th of November, and nomination forms are available outside the MathSoc Office.
Finally, nominations for the MGC Chair (Spring 1999/Winter 2000) have been reopened, and will be open until Friday, November 13th. The Grad Committee is an important part of your graduating year; through the Grad Committee, we provide the yearbook, grad photos, pizza days, social events, and the Math Grad Ball. If there are no names submitted by the close of nominations, there will be no MGC Chair in the Spring term. I urge all grads of 2000 to seriously consider the consequences of this, and to put forward a name. Nomination forms are available outside of the MathSoc Office.
That's it for this week. If you have any questions, or just want to talk, you can find me in the Exec Office (MC 3039); and of course, I'm always reachable by e-mail at email@example.com.
