Week 5 Newsletter

Dear CCS Members,

Please find in this week’s newsletter information about:

1) Final call for manifestos, deadline extended to Feb 23rd

2) AGM and Election

3) Annual Dinner final reminders


1) ———————Final call for manifestos———————-

After careful consideration and assessment of the candidates list by the current committee, we have decided to extend the DEADLINE of applications to ALL POSITIONS UNTIL next Thursday. This is mainly due to the fact that a lot of positions (including publicity, ents, sports, IT, and sponsorship officers) still remain uncontested. We believe that the level of competition is not quite enough and it is always in the interest of our members to have more options.

Please submit your manifesto to Mengqing Zou at mz294@cam.ac.uk by 24:00 Thursday, 23rd Feb. (no longer than one A4 page).

Any submission beyond that date will be disqualified, even if you have expressed your interest to our committee members in person.

On next Friday we will send another email with all candidates’ manifestos attached as well as the final details about our AGM.

2)—————————-AGM and Election—————————-

Time: 12:00 – 16:00, Saturday, 25th Feb.

Venue: Winstanley Lecture Theatre, Trinity College.

Notice for the candidates:

1. This year, we allow the President and Vice-President candidates to have a second choice for other positions. Please do indicate your second choice on your manifesto. The above two positions will be voted first (separated from other positions), and whoever fail can run for a second committee position of their choice in the next round of voting.

2. English speech is required for President, Vice-President and Publicity Officer candidates. For President and Vice-President candidates, the speech is 5 minutes long; for all other positions, each candidate is given 3 minutes for his/her speech.

3. Q&A session will be carried out after speeches for each position.

3)——————————Annual Dinner——————————

Our annual dinner is now fully booked. Thanks to all the people who have shown interests in this event.

Just three important things to note here:

1) This is a black-tie event.

2) Do NOT bring wine yourself, unless you are willing to pay a corkage fee of £13. Additional wine can be purchased at the dinner.

3) Please arrive at King’s College by 7pm and ask for the Beves Room.

We are looking forward to seeing you tonight.

CUCCS President

Cambridge University Chinese Cultural Society, usually referred to as CCS, is one of the biggest non-profit organizations run by Chinese students in the University of Cambridge.

Founded in 1998 by a group of enthusiastic Chinese undergraduates, CCS aims to enhance the influence of Chinese culture in Cambridge. Since its founding, CCS has grown tremendously into a society with over 800 members, consisting of students from mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, Southeast Asia and UK. The society regularly organizes a great variety of fun-filled and meaningful events, which not only enriches the university life, but also strengthens the bonds between our members. Furthermore, these activities also unfold the rich and fascinating Chinese culture to other students in Cambridge.

The first annual play <> (<<雷雨>>) struck Cambridge in 2003. The response was overwhelming – Each year, tens of thousands of audiences, including both University students and local residents, are attracted by the annual play. Also in the same year, CCS launched the production of the semester magazine, <> (<<言吾言>>), which is written by talented student writers. The magazine reaches every single member free of charge, and has since become the most influential in the local Chinese community. Apart from these, a range of sports matches against other societies are also organized each year to encourage CCS members to integrate into the University community. CCS also operates Mandarin lessons, and organizes various events such as garden parties, formals and theme park trips etc. to entertain our members.

Today CCS is widely acclaimed by students around Cambridge and it has been continued year after year by the committee members elected in the Annual General Meeting. And it is our members’ support that makes CCS becoming a more integrated, fun, well-organized society. Thank you!
