On the warm night of the 17th of October, the members of Students for Global Health society gathered together in the room 3.04 (known for the best views in Garrod) to fulfil the missing positions on the committee. Around 16 people attended the EGM, including some guests from the national committee of SfGH. We started off by sharing a delicious cake baked by our lovely VP Elisa Dalle Piagge. It was still warm as our President Katie Burns made an opening speech during which she introduced society members who are already part of the committee. After voting on introduction of new positions, we swiftly moved on to voting for candidates running for each position. Everyone made a beautiful speech about how passionate they are about their role and, following quick vote conducted by the Secretary Ania Wozniak, almost all positions were filled.
We are very pleased with the outcomes of the EGM and we are hoping for an amazing year ahead. We are looking forward to this year as we believe that thanks to those new souls who decided to share their passion for global health, it will be a very successful year. We already have numerous events planned and even more ideas in our heads. With such a diverse committee, in which every member has a very different area of interest within global health, this year is going to be colourful and fun making Students for Global Health great again!
