Secretary of Jazz and Blues Society

I have recently been elected as the Secretary of the Jazz and Blues Society at University of Leeds. Quite an achievement considering that those who were voting were in a different country to me and some had never met me.  However, I had my introduction announced at the AGM and they obviously thought this evidence enough that I would be a good enough guy:

For those who don’t already know me, I was the founding Secretary in 2006-07 and continued to be the Secretary in 07-08, often taking on presidential roles when Kieran was unavailable due to large amounts of coursework.  I organised the Cherie Gears concert which we put on in 2007 and also played a large role in getting the Nu York State gig together that same year.

This coming year, as secretary, I would keep all our records organised, creating an online space within which we could share documents as a committee, and between the entire society if appropriate.  I would also like to propose regular meetings of the committee at which actions that need to be taken are documented and made public on this online space.

As demonstrated in my previous secretaryship, I am a rounded person who can put his hand to any task which needs to be done at the time, and push forward the agenda of the entire group.

Many thanks for considering me!

I look forward to getting involved with the society this coming year, putting on more cool blues events and one hell of a jazz festival in February 2010 (details to be announced!).

    I have no idea. I’m no longer at Leeds. The hosting for the website has probably expired, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the society doesn’t exist. Go to LUU reception, ask them if you can find out who the committee of Jazz and Blues Society are.
