Governance and Exec
JCR meetings are a thing that the College imposed on us to ensure we stay accountable, or something like that. Basically, we all go to the bar, get a little bit drunk, say a few things, and some super serious kids present their articulated opinion on the pseudo legal speak of paragraph 1 in section VII on page 33 of the standing orders with regards to the remuneration of the executive committee (as presented here without comment) and whether of not it falls foul of minimum wage law due to stating that it is a payment, thus implying that it is an employment ipso facto should technically bring all benefits and responsibilities that employment has attached to it both from the employee and employers’ point of view. You know, something boring.
If no lads have managed to conquer the Sealion’s Den, we have an election to see who is the Top Lad. We have many rules defining who can and cannot stand and have written them down in a 40-page document somewhere. We’re not quite sure where because we weren’t elected based on our knowledge of the document. We’re just Top Lads.
The Executive Committee
The exec for this academic year is as follows:
Top Lad | George Bumbleworth
Runs the show
Vice Lad (Fun Police) | Henry Didly-Squat
Ruins the show
Dad’s Lad | Florence Goldsmith
Pays the show
Together, they form the First TriLadirate who are really important and run everything. You need to know who these people are.
The other exec roles are:
Man Up Officer | Ben Dover
Gives you condoms and a stern pat on the back.
Communities Officer | David Davies
Ensures that the surrounding communities aren’t as banterous as us.
Top Lass | Alice Bee
Writes the minutes for meetings and does whatever the Top Lad says.
Archbishop of Banterbury | Wigby Dalker
Gives the weekly banter sermons
Livers-Out Master | Heston Blumenthal
Correctly prepares livers for take-aways
Facilities Officer | Unfilled Position
Facilitates your transition into the real world
JCR Throne | Jeffrey Lancaster
Thrones the JCR meetings. Technically impartial, but he doesn’t like people from York.
