Chairperson: Kate Buckell
Minutes taken by: Kate Buckell
Minutes of last meeting: Passed without amendment
The Executive notes that the Convenor (Donald Murray) resigned due to
necessity of obtaining a job. The General Secretary (Anita Goldsmith)
resigned to take up a course in Manchester. One of the LGB Officers (Sarah
Thomas) resigned because she felt that she would not be able to commit
herself fully to CLANUS because of her studies. It was noted that it is
necessary for an executive member to take the organisational role of area
convenor until elections can be held. It was suggested and agreed that
Stephen Mullen (Further Education Union Development Officer) should be the
acting convenor and that Kate Buckell will assist Stephen in this role. It
was also agreed that the CLANUS office should now be based at Lancaster and
Morecambe College Students' Union.
