VOLUNTARY STUDENT MEMBERSHIP CAMPAIGN UPDATE
Logan has been purchasing equipment to set up the display and prison/cage this afternoon. He is sure he has most of the gear and was glad the shops were generous when he said it was for OUSA.
He pointed out the strategy for the campaign should be flexible as the freedom of association VSM Bill could pass in the meantime. Nonetheless, this is an awareness campaign to our members should the bill pass in the interim.
There are tee shirts being printed with a good non specific design so they can be used later.
Spotlights are being erected on the trees to shine onto the prison/cage.
Matt Tucker is investigating wi-fi etc so other student associations in the country can connect through to Logan.
The prison etc will be erected next Wednesday morning so could the entire executive be there to help please? Also please sign up on Katie’s spreadsheet roster to help Logan throughout his time in prison.
