Apply to become master/international student representative at the Study Board!

Hello chapter!❤️

The studies have begun for period 3 and we now need master representatives as well as international student representatives who are dedicated to evaluating and improving the computer science program. Being a master/international student representative means that you represent your master/international student group, both at the Study Board's meetings (a half-hour lunch meeting every two weeks) and when we go to link meetings.

"What is a link meeting?", you are probably wondering. Link meetings are meetings that take place once per term, where the year representatives meet those responsible for the courses and the computer program as a whole. Where we have a huge chance to influence and improve our program!

Another important task for the representatives is to complain about courses, consume our fika budget and go to our Teambuildings!🤩

So, fill out the form and APPLY!

Important message to the Chapter

Hello everyone!

Here’s some important information from the board.

TL;DR:

The board is currently understaffed and it will be difficult for us to keep up with all the work. Please be well in advance with items you need help with.

The extra chapter meeting is on the 9th of February and a number of important items will be dealt with, including a major budget revision.

The chapter would like to have “frackband”. Send your suggestions to [email protected].

Few people on the board

The first thing is that at the time of writing we have four vacancies on the Board (Secretary, Vice treasurer, Board member for student social affairs and Board member forsStudent environment and equality).

This means that the board may have longer response times than usual and that we will not be able to focus on the issues normally dealt with by the vacant posts. Another consequence is that less will be done on other fronts as the rest of the board needs to take up the slack. So please be out in good time if you have matters that need to be dealt with.

Extra-SM

We will have an extra chapter meeting on the 9th of February where important motions and a major budget revision will be dealt with.

The motions that will be dealt with are

  • Motion to review the acoustics of META
  • Motion regarding CPR training for elected officials and chapter members
  • Motion regarding the election process for members of the Union Council
  • Motion regarding budget for Blums

Elections for many important positions will be held at the Extra-SM. In addition to the Board vacancies, elections will be held for several important positions,

  • Programme responsible student
  • Auditor
  • Student Safety Officer
  • Speaker.

As this is an extra chapter meeting, no other motions will be considered. Notice will be sent separately.

Frackband

During the Glögg-SM, “frackband” for the Section came up as another issue. There were various options presented during the Glögg-SM but none of the proposals were preferred by the CM.

“Frackband” are mainly used when representing the chapter in external contexts. Therefore, the design should be in accordance with our graphic profile.

Please send your suggestions to [email protected].

D-rektiv

In accordance with our statutes §4.4 Brådskande ärenden and §4.8 D-rektiv I hereby issue a D-rektiv.

The D-rective reads as follows:

Life can feel monotonous sometimes, dare to try new things. Worst case scenario is that you're more satisfied with your previous existance.

It has been a great year with many advancements, we've had a year without restrictions, the spring ball finally got arranged after being cancelled two years in a row, we've had the biggest D-Dagen ever, an epic reception, fantastic educational monitoring and good progress on external relations. There's a lot more, the Chapter is evolving rapidly.

Thanks to everyone that has made the Chapter to what it is during 2022! I would also like to dedicate a special thanks to all the officials of The Chapter that have evolved and worked for Konglig Datasektionen during 2022, the pleasure of working for and with you has been on my side. Finally i wish all the Officials a good 2023, I know that you're capable of great deeds.

See you on the roads/in the tracks/hills — David Puustinen, Chairperson 2022
