Party Committee

“Study hard, party harder” – Karl Marx

The Party Committee is UCM’s go-to society for anything party-related. We aim to organize at least three events every year: a Halloween party, a winter gala and a summer ball.

Organizing these involves a range of tasks such as brainstorming, discussing and settling on a theme, scouting for DJs, contacting possible venues, buying decorations, settling drinking deals and promoting our events through social media and face-to-face communication. Especially the promoting of a party is important, and our work does not really start until about two weeks prior to the event when the Facebook event is made public, posters are being printed and distributed and tickets have arrived. Another important party-planning stage is the initial brainstorming and discussions about party names and themes. You may ask what’s in a name, but a name makes a party. Too long, too dull and dreary; too cliché and no one will take it seriously. This is why a lot of our creative energy is expended on a party name and theme, with some heated debate and some fun themes as a result.

The Party Committee aims to shift UCMers from the couches in the common room and the desks of the reading room, to the dance floors of Maastricht’s pubs and clubs. We want to provide a way for UCMers to get together, hang out and let loose outside of the walls of our beloved building, and the eyes of its beloved occupants. Whatever your strengths, if you enjoy a good party, or if you like organizing one, the Party Committee would love your input.

Hear ye, hear ye!
Audit General Assembly is happening on November 15th, at 18:30 in D0.033!
Mainly, we will be passing the semester report, including the financial report from the fall. The Independent Body will be auditing the books and financial report at the start of the GA. We will also look at the phrasing changes made to the Statutes. More excitingly, we will be introducing a new candidate committee, a new IB member, as well as announcing the positions in the Social Board and the AC which will soon be opened! Yay!
Find the agenda, the minutes from our last GA, the semester and the financial report, the policy manual, and the statutes on the UCMSA Universalis website: ucmsauniversalis.com under 'Documents' before the GA. Confused on how to GA? The Website also houses the GA Crash Course given by the IB! Motions can be sent to independentbody@gmail.com before the 8th of November 2017.
ALL committee board members are required to attend the GA. Any other students are more than welcome to join the GA as well. This is your opportunity to participate in the democratic process. If you cannot attend, please find someone to proxy for you. Proxy forms can be found on the website but you can also come pick them up in the board room. They must be signed by the person missing the GA as well as dated and handed in before the beginning of the GA to the Universalis Social Board Secretary (Eleanor Máire Kelly).

As per usual, we will have beers and snacks as a treat in the end!

Looking forward to seeing you there,
Your Universalis Board(s) xoxo
