10th March 2013

Winter is coming… again. As Lent term ends, we find ourselves in a similar position as we were at the end of Michelmas; that is, tightly curled up under a blanket with a cup of hot Milo nearby.

But Monday arrives soon, and we all have to leave our warm shelters eventually. So wrap up tight and head on over to the CUMaS AGM tomorrow evening at Newnham College. Highlights include complaining to the current committee on our lack of response to the sudden cold weather chill, and watching young’uns convince you to vote for them while shivering (cold? nervous? who knows?).

Important reminder: If you’re unable to attend the AGM (snowed in, attacked by sentient snowmen, etc.), please register for proxy voting by tonight! Details are below.

Finally, we have a survey by an undergraduate doing research on Malaysians studying abroad.

1. CUMaS AGM 2013: Last Reminder

A final reminder that the AGM is coming up tomorrow evening! We highly encourage you to attend if possible. If you cannot make it, please note that the deadline for nominating your proxy voter is tonight!

The candidates for the incoming CUMaS Committee (2013/14) are now officially announced. View the line-up of running candidates and their manifestos over at the official AGM 2013 page.

If you are planning to attend the AGM, please fill in the online form. This is mainly to determine if we can meet quorum at the AGM. If you can’t make it to the AGM, we strongly suggest that you find someone to submit a proxy vote! Details for proxy voting can be found in the AGM 2013 Document.

The details for the AGM are as below:

Date: Monday, 11th March 2013
Time: 6.00pm-10.00pm (The AGM will start promptly at 6.15pm)
Venue: Lucia Windsor Room, Newnham College

As it is essential that we meet quorum for the AGM, we would really encourage those who are unable to attend to email secretary@cumas.org to arrange for voting via proxy. The deadline for registering for proxy voting is Sunday, 10th March 2013.

2. [Research] Malaysian Undergraduates Studying Abroad

My name is Tze Yeen Liew and I am a final year undergraduate student at the University of Nottingham. I am conducting a research on key success factors that are pivotal in repatriating Malaysian undergraduate students who are completing, or who have recently completed, their undergraduate studies abroad. This study deals with trying to isolate certain newer factors that may be important in getting Malaysian students to return home.

I hope you can spare 3-4 minutes of your time to complete this short survey. All responses are guaranteed anonymity and will be kept strictly confidential.

Your input is instrumental to the success of this research 🙂 As a token of appreciation, one randomly selected participant will be entitled to a RM100 lucky draw prize.
