    Hola Salseros and everyone!
     
    A weird year has come and gone however we still managed to get dancing and enjoy ourselves! 
     
    The plan for the evening will be running the elections, playing some dance games, and then playing some online games like jackbox party.
     
    We are recruting for our member positions for next year and would like to invite as many people along as possible to see what the soc is about, and to forge its future!

    Even if you don't want to become a member, having you there to vote and elect the people you want, to keep Salsa Soc running smoothly, will help just as much!
     
    The roles we want to fill are:
    President 
    Vice-President 
    Secretary
    Treasurer 
    Social Sec 
    Cuban Captain 
    Crossbody & Bachata Captain

    Please come along, run for a position or just vote!
    We hope to see you there.

    Our AGM is coming up! This is a very important time where we will vote and decide our committee members for next year. 

    Do you want to gain experience in planning and running events, gain the extra credit that comes with being part of a volunteering committee and overall just have fun helping with conservation work? Well then we would love for you to join our committee for 2022! We understand that it has been hard for you to gain the full SUCV experience this year due to COVID, however we hope to be back to normal next year!

    We will be running our AGM on April the 18th at 8PM. Even if you don't plan on joining the committee, we would love for you to come along.

    Simply click here to join on the day.

    If you would like to join our committee, all you need to do is join the meeting on the day and state the roles you would like to elect yourself for. You can also fill out the optional form here. This is not required, but we would appreciate it as it gives us an idea of the number of people we can expect.

    Thank you for reading! We hope to see slot of you on the day!

    Any issues, send us an email.
     

    Available Committee Positions:


    President (Required):
    You will be the public face of the society, write the weekly e-mail, and manage the rest of the committee to make sure the society runs smoothly. You need to know what everyone is (and should be!) doing.

    Treasurer (Required):
    You will look after the finances of the society, and invoice site managers. Also deals with insurance.

    Secretary (Required):
    Handles our social media, organising meetings, and communicating with other society's when necessary.

    Task Manager:
    Handles looking for new tasks and communicates with third parties to book these potential events.

    Residential Officer/Social Officer:
    Deals with booking and managing residential trips during term time and potentially the summer holidays. Manages possible socials that we may want to run. 

    General Committee Member:
    If you want to join our committee but don't want any specific role, you can join as a general member. This involves simply being there during tasks and being able to help students where they need it.
     

    In addition there is a selection of responsibilities which may be split between the above roles, although some can become committee positions in their own right:

    • Organising merchandise
    • Organising transportation to tasks
    • Looking after our equipment
    • Health and Safety
    • Organising an international residential trip
    • Organising any joint-society events (fundraisers, tasks, socials)
    • Organising the hot drinks and biscuits each week,

    Every committee member can run tasks, and should get to grips with the safety talk, safe tree felling, and some basic species ID (although no pressure here).

    'State of Nature' Panel Discussion for Earth Day

    22 Apr, -
    Online Online
    SUSU

    FREE

    Find out more

    Most people are aware that nature is being increasingly threatened and biodiversity is declining sharply. But are governments and local councils too focused on economic recovery? Is the limited bandwidth they have for tackling environmental problems focused on the ‘climate emergency’, rather than the broader ‘climate and ecological emergency’ that many groups are demanding urgent action on?

    Attendees will have a chance to put questions to the panel as well as listen to the discussion on this important topic.

    Chair: Dr Tony Curran, Senior Public Engagement Fellow at the University of Southampton, runs Southampton Nature and Biodiversity Community Hub, Environmental Science Communicator. @tonycurran1

    Panel:

    Dr Jake Snaddon, Lecturer in Environmental Sciences at the University of Southampton, with research interests focused on biodiversity, ecosystems and conservation. @JLSnaddon

    Jamie Marsh, Senior Reserves Manager at Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust. @jamiemarsh77

    Corin Holloway, Vice President (Activities) at University of Southampton Students’ Union (SUSU), Coordinator, BioCycle, member of Southampton University Conservation Volunteers.

    Dr Izzy Sargent, background in research and environmental sciences and local resident passionate about the natural world and protecting local green spaces. @thepenguinjunk
