I'm running for Treasurer as I have been a regular member of Sci-Fi and Fantasy throughout my time at UCL (I am currently Head Gamesmaster) and would relish the opportunity to further help run a society in which I know I and many others are so personally invested in.

You should vote for me if you want:

- Responsible management of the society's finances; obviously this is the key role of the Treasurer. Having lived in London for the past 2 years, I have a good grasp of how to stick to a budget.

- Branching out of how the society spends membership money.

In previous years the main form of expenditure for the society has been in the form of board game purchases. Unfortunately, due to storage space restrictions, this is not sustainable in the long term. Additionally, over the past year the society has significantly grown in size, largely due to an increased emphasis on tabletop RPGs.

As a result, the society needs to branch out in the way it spends money from membership fees to ensure that people feel they are getting value from the money they put into the society. These could include a larger budget for RPG materials, more subsidised film showings and/or a budget for snacks and drinks at social events.

Manifesto text: 

Over the past few years the UCL SF & F Society has seen huge growth and development. There has been a multitude of new events, new interests, and most importantly new faces. Should I be elected Treasurer, I will make sure that this growth continues.

During my time as an undergraduate I had the opportunity to be First Year Representative and in the following year President of the Biochemical Engineering Undergraduate Society. I also served twice as the SF & F webmaster. Now in my PhD, I am a StAR for the Computer Science Department and student representative of the Bioinformatics Group. I've also performed very quantitative work and have experience with budgeting and administration. For example, in the context of the society I organized the SFFS Dice that were sold this year; from design to delivery.

From this background and more I bring an array of tools and experience I will use to make sure that the position of Treasurer continues to contribute greatly to the operating of the committee and most importantly the Society as a whole.
