newsletter 17 – 23 april

Dearest SIBlings,

This week I’ll be giving our lovely Hanna Roy a break from writing the newsletter and giving you a chance to hear from me! (Saoirse) 

This week has been a quiet week in the office! However we have taken the opportunity to extend the deadline for the board applications. If you’re interested in applying, you should first email your CV and motivation letter (up to 2 pages) to After the deadline (20th of April), the board will  get in contact with you to schedule your interview. This will take place in early May, and is conducted with two board members and a RvA member. Once interviews have concluded, the board will propose the successful candidates as the Preferred Candidate Board, which the GMA then votes on at the election GMA, this is currently scheduled for the 8th of June. And then handover will begin

On Monday the 17th  we will finally return with a Karaoke night, organised by our amazing Dispuut Pardon?!. There’ll be no lecture that night so we will kick off festivities 21:00 at Mesacosa. Make sure to start considering your song choices now, if you want to take inspiration from Hanna Roy and I, we would highly recommend “Ebony and  Ivory” (our go to Karaoke song). This is also a great opportunity to start warming up your vocal chords in anticipation of this years SIB on Stage! In preparation for this, the SIB awards have already opened up for votes, so click here to give your opinion!
