UCC Committee Meeting Minutes 2020-05-21
Meeting opened at 19:37 AKA 7:37!
- Motion to budget $150 for 4G data sim card
- 4/8 votes - didn't pass
- Needed 5 votes
Confirmation of minutes from previous meeting
- They exist, they are good
- Main thing: CHARITY UNVIGIL
- Was a massive success!
- Raised the most we've raised at a Charity Vigil probably ever
- Nearly $1,800 for CHARITY!
- Need to sort donations on Square
- Costs incurred: $3.29 for the website domain
- Ended up using our own servers for games - so no cost there
- Subcommittee decided to top-up donations (ie. split costs of processing fees)
- Less than $10 per club to cover the 2.2% processing fee!
- Will talk more about this later
- Also setup the 4G access point again so we have a backup link to the club again
- Put both small SSDs in!
- Didn't have time to install the big ones (the 2x 1TB ones)
- Network deadlines... also to discuss later
Vice President's Report
- Uni and exams, exams, exams, yay exams
- In other news: mail is a huge hassle
- Got in touch with Makers Committee about network changes
- They seem to have accomodated the changes already...
- Bre (Guild President) has said that the CIO will get the network team to have a look at it
- Also will call in the morrow
- 212 accounts due for renewal
- ...SOC do not yet have a date for when Cameron Hall will reopen ;(
- The tav has reopened however...
- Membership is currently at 130
- 53 Renewals / 80 New Members
- Last year we had 265 members...
- This equates to a membership revenue shortfall of ~$1,500 vs 2019
- That amount is an estimate based off the difference of 130 memberships
- (70% guild/student, 20% non-guild non-student, 10% other)
- If everyone renewed: would be approximately $2,500
- Have got a list of accounts to email
- Would be nice to extend when account locking happens given UCC is still closed

- Started drafting a media release for F@H; will put draft up for input soon
