Hi! I’m Emily and I’m your VP Engagement. I am a third year electronics student (and last year’s social sec) with a love for pizza and karaoke! 🍕🕺

As VP Engagement, I will provide useful support and advice to the social secretaries and events officer to ensure all socials run smoothly, especially large events such as the Halloween house crawl, Christmas ball, and Summer ball.

I want to make sure that there is a good communication link between the Sports Officer and the ECSS sports teams so that it is easier for sports teams to access money and equipment when they need it.

To welcome next years’ Freshers into the society, I will work with the committee to deliver a new, refreshed and exciting Jumpstart week, which will increase first year attendance from both Computer Science students and ELEC students.

I want to increase participation rates within the society, by finding out from current society members what kinds of socials they would like to attend. From this feedback, I can work with the Social Secretary and Events Officer to create events that suit all types of people. I will work with the marketing officer to create exciting events posts, banners and posters to increase event interest. And of course... the best way to encourage attendance.... more pizza!!🍕🍕
