Minutes from UCC meeting
Posted: Thu Jan 15, 2009 7:46 pm
Thanks to Ygern who actually took these down.
The group would prefer the word 'Atheist' in the title, but there is some doubt as to what will be allowed (socs must give indication of their general philosophy/aims from the title). Options discussed were UCC Atheists, and or maybe UCC Atheists, Secularists & Sceptics or some variant of this to make it more inclusive.
- Host DVD evenings showing movies or programmes
- invite guest speakers to talk on specific subjects. Aoife suggested that she might be able to get someone from Educate Together.
- hold debates
- organise trips to national conferences of AI / HAI / Irish Skeptics, etc.
- generally represent the concerns and views of non-believers on campus in an organised and coherent fashion
- get a plug in UCC Express (Sean knows someone involved) - can have full article/interview once society is up and running to advertise AGM
- get 100 required signatories and 100 euro together (get start up grant of 400 euro back once set up) - plan to take signatures next week (Tuesday and Wednesday)
- get publicity for group: could be mentioned on the Atheist Bus page on Facebook, UCC forums etc
- set up subforum for Student Societies on atheist.ie
