AUU and SRC clash: Constitutions, Committees, and Coal Mines

AUU Board:

At about 6 o’clock the board meeting began. To kick off the proceedings, newly minted AUU Board Director Angus Heaton was elected to the position of Student Media Chair, a position recently vacated by AUU Vice President Hugh Sutton. The vote was 6/3 with one abstention.

SRC:

This meeting made SRC history as the SRC finally reached the two-thirds quorum necessary to change the SRC constitution. Rural Officer Tobias Threadgold moved an amendment that would allow SRC members, with permission from the SRC President, to attend meetings by video link. This was mainly designed for rural and international students. SRC President Ali Amin seconded the motion, mentioning that no other SA campus has a similar system where the Rural Officer must take a two-hour trip out of their own time and money to attend meetings. The amendment passed unanimously.
