AGM Agenda                                          2020 Constitution


Constitution changes: We have made changes to our constitution, an important document which primarily outlines how the society should be run, and a few rules that we need to follow. The changes that we have made include the addition of new positions to the FUPS committee which are a Palaeo in the Pub Coordinator and a Field trip Coordinator, the changing of the undergraduate year representative to three general undergraduate representatives from any year, as well as changes to our membership options. FUPS has decided as a committee that there will no longer be a life membership option (current life members will not be affected), and memberships will be split into student and non-student prices. Finally, a section on member expulsion has been added.
