***AGM, committee is still looking for successors***

Last Sunday (15 June) the annual general meeting took place. Minutes are available upon request. In summary; with immediate effect the new OUSS President is Jilles Fermont. Serena Ding and Matei Cirstea will be the Team Captains. Asya Gutnikova remains the Ball Manager. Chris Vogel is the new IT Officer. Junyuan Xue will be the Media Officer.

Unfortunately some committee members are unable to stay on the next year’s committee. Hence, we are still looking for successors for some roles, in particular the Secretary and Treasurer roles. Contact any of the current committee members or email if you’re interested in taking on a leadership role.

***Rueda de Casino Marathon***

On 22 November we are having a fundraising event for Cancer Research UK. In this joint event by the Dancesport Club Rueda Komrades and the Salsa Society we are planning to do a Rueda de Casino Marathon.

If you are available on 2, 3, 9 and/or 10 August for the promo video, please complete the following doodle If you are also interested in participating in the marathon, or want to help out on the event, please send a message to Jilles Fermont
