It was a little later in the year than expected but we finally had our AGM. This means that the reigns of BADCASS are being passed on to a new team.
Neil will be staying on, moving from his Treasurer role to take the new President. Myself (Matt), Jenn and Katie will be "growing up" and letting someone else organise events and play with money.
Some of our thoughts on our time with BADCASS are below:
"The three of us have had our hands in this pie for a cumulative 10 years and it has been one hell of a journey. With moments like disciplining members, to playing "golf" with 50 other accountants there are countless memories that will stay with us for a long time. For me I know that when I look back on my experiences, this will be one I never forget."
"In the last year BADCASS has added yet more new events to the calendar and hosted an unforgettable ball.
Almost two years...BADCASS it's been fun. My highlight has been increasing the ball to its highest attendance and having a full calendar of events.
From photo-shopping out a members' eyebrows to dressing like a "pirate" it's been an absolute roller coaster and we could never have done it without our members and the rest of the committee.
So from all of us leaving this year, we wish the new committee and its members the best of luck in the future!
Come along in your best pirate outfit to this years Booze Cruise sponsored by Michael Page on Thursday 8th September.
We'll be having a drink in Mud Dock at 7 to get us started before setting sail at 7:30. During our 3 hour voyage we'll be stopping off at several pubs along the way and there will also be a prize for best fancy dress!
For those of you with exams at the start of the week there really is no excuse. It is the ideal opportunity to go out and celebrate!
Hope to see you there!!
