Madeline Rose
Hi, my name is Maddie and I want to be your social sec! After a socially distanced year, I hope to bring the club closer together and to integrate both the 2020 and 2021 freshers properly into RUMSBC. I plan to do this through the return of sports nights, socials, and TOUR (fingers crossed), but also additional, more wholesome social events that do not revolve around drinking and are more focused on socialising with both rowing and non-rowing members. I want to build on the families created this year as I believe it will promote interclub mingling and help new members to feel less alienated.
I am aware of the commitment required to be a good social sec and will enthusiastically take on this responsibility. I am a proactive, creative problem solver and will enjoy the planning and organisation side of the role. I hope to be an approachable committee member and am excited to be more involved in the club in an important, but fun capacity. Boat club socials were a favourite part of my first year and I want to help to create the same experience for others.

The social side of RUMSBC has been hugely important to my university experience. I think that the club is a wonderful, and incredibly fun, way to make supportive friends and form bonds that will last throughout university and beyond.

After an undeniably difficult and disruptive year, we still can’t be sure what the situation will be after the summer. As a result, I only can promise to be flexible and work with closely other members of the committee (welfare and inclusivity officers for example!) to provide the best the best social experiences we can for all.

I am as eager as the rest of you to get back to our usual shenanigans in the Huntley and further afield, and know that I can step up to the plate and continue the traditions we all know and love. Equally, I want to do my part in making the club more inclusive, and less alienating for first years & those who don’t want to drink. To do this, I’d like to help continue implementing the parenting system, and I think the current social secs’ idea of adding a less drinking-centred ‘oval’ on Wednesday nights could widen participation.

We should also learn from our experiences this year. Online get-togethers have been a great way to catch up over a pint/cup of tea/glass of orange juice/70cl bottle of Tesco own brand vodka, without the time and travel commitment of an in-person social, and I’d like to see that this continues to be an option.

Keep an eye out for the manifesto and some juicy memes ;-)
