2024 AGM and Elections - Candidates and Voting
Exec elections time is here! Read on for instructions on how to exercise your democratic rights online OR at the AGM! So much choice :)
Our candidates for this year's election are as follows:
Anyone who's been a WSC member since the 14th of February is eligible to vote in our elections. If you can, please come and cast your vote in-person at our AGM at 6:30pm on Wednesday 28th February in L3, where each candidate will give a speech and take questions from the audience. We'll explain everything else you need to know on the day!
If you can't come, you can cast your vote online. Online voting is open from now until 6:30pm on Weds 28th (the beginning of the AGM). The rest of this email is instructions on online voting, so if this doesn't apply to you, you're free to go!
Still here? We're using Single Transferrable Vote, which means you need to rank the options for each position. Included in the list is RON (Re-Open Nominations, to be used when you believe the remaining candidates are unfit for the position) and NFP (No Further Preference, to be used when you don't really care about the rest).
For example, suppose candidates A, B and C are running for a role. You think A is great, B is fine, and C isn't right for the job. Then you'd rank them:
- Candidate A,
- Candidate B,

To vote, email email@example.com with your completed ballot, student ID and full name. Votes received after the deadline will not be counted!
Exec Meeting - Sunday 25th March, 4pm - H0.03
There will be an Exec meeting on Sunday 25th February at 4pm in H0.03. All WSC members are welcome to attend.
An agenda will follow shortly.
Hi everyone, and welcome to Warwick Student Cinema!
We're a student-run, professional quality cinema that shows films up to 6 days a week during term time. With one of the best sound systems in the region, cheap tickets and a wide variety of films on schedule, we humbly consider ourselves one of the best places in the world. We even show films in 35mm and 70mm!
You can come to any of our many shows throughout the year — from old classics to recent blockbusters, we're sure we'll have something for you. You can even join our close-knit crew, by joining Front of House, Marketing, Publicity, Projection or the IT team!
We try to make everyone happy and feel welcome, so feel free to get in touch if you have any questions, and be sure to check out our schedule. You can find us in L3, a lecture theatre in the Chemistry building on central campus.
We love you already, and we really hope you'll love us.

Want free films for yourself and a guest?
Yes, that's right! Get involved with Warwick Student Cinema and you and a guest can come to as many of our standard screenings as you want for free.
What's the catch? There is a minimum commitment but it isn't much; a few reviews every term or stewarding once a fortnight, for example. Beyond that, there are plenty of opportunities if you're interested but it is really up to you.
What can I do then? Well, that's entirely up to you but we like to think there is something for everyone, be it stewarding films, training as a projectionist, helping to design our new website, or writing a film review for our booklet. Have a browse around the Get Involved section of our website, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or just say hello to one of the front-of-house staff before or after a screening to find out more about the different roles.
Why should I do it? Persuade me! The simple answer is that we need you. The society cannot function without the volunteers who help keep everything running smoothly, so that our audience can come and see the film knowing they will have a great time.
But, what's in it for me? Aside from the free films, you will be part of a society that will develop your transferable skills and increase your attractiveness to employers. And that's not forgetting our regular socials.
So, what do I do next? Your best bet is to send an email to email@example.com or just say hello before a screening and we'll tell you how best to proceed from there.
