Committee of 10/11

committee of 06/07

...damnit, the Chair's hiding...

The committee form the core of the society, and are in charge of everything that makes the society what it is. This includes organising events, editing the newsletter, sticking posters on the walkway or sitting at the computer on library duty.

Liberating Daleks and wearing scary t-shirts is an optional but fun pastime! We are aided by a gaggle of 'keen freshers', who while they may not (yet!) hold formal positions, are essential to keeping the society running. Let's meet the gang...



The buck stops here. Responsible for overseeing everything that's happening, and doing it themselves if all else fails, whcih it usually does. The Chair also has to attend SCC meetings, be aware of what the treasurer and the librarian are doing and delegate lots. Generally friendly but slightly harried.

Christopher Hutchison picocon chair

The Thing is required to run barnights and take over from the Chair if something unspeakable happens to him/her/it. Also responsible for the maintenance of the mailing lists and web-pages until someone else volunteers to take over.

Some people would call me crazy, others know better. There is little point in this distinction as I killed both groups.

The librarian is responsible for the icsf Library and its bounteous contents. Duties includes maintaining the database, organising book buys, chasing bad people with overdue items and (most difficult) getting people to empty the bins!

I'm an enthusiastic fantasy reader and generally organising personality, and I'm Head Librarian for the year 2010/11

Deals with the cash, turns up to meetings (or should do) and hopefully makes calming noises along lines of 'we have lots of money, don't worry'. An indispensable post, which sounds a lot easier than it is.

4th year physicist.

Responsible for taking minutes and typing letters. Sound easy? T'ain't. Generally the only committee member who knows what's happening and bosses the rest of us about something chronic.

Norfolk is icsf's new dalek mascot, taking over when our old mascot (Fred) suffered a fatal injury. It has a twin sibling called Chance.

Designs, prints and puts up the posters. Also responsible for distributing WyrmTongue (our newsletter) and acquiring as much blu-tac as possible. Gets grumbled at if no-one turns up to events.

Librarian-in-Waiting, wargamer and alleged troll.

Picocon is our annual one-day convention. Tends to be stupendous fun and horribly stressful for the organisers. The Sofa chairs the Picocon sub-committee, and is in charge of external contacts (traders, speakers etc).

Type: fresher. Subtype: keen. Most often to be found on the red beanbag, or trying to move there.

The sofa this year has been ruthlessly divided into two, splitting the responsibility, the nagging, the stress and the spending power neatly down the middle. The Picocon Beanbag is responsible for internal arrangements (room bookings, getting helpers, ensuring the bar has beer).

Norfolk is icsf's new dalek mascot, taking over when our old mascot (Fred) suffered a fatal injury. It has a twin sibling called Chance.

Produces the society's bi-monthly newsletter WyrmTongue and the annual Fanzine. Lives in continual hope of finding a keen fresher to hive WyrmTongue off to.

Current ICSF Editor, despite being stuck in the depths of Lincolnshire.

The webeditor co-ordinates the contributions of content and code that come from a variety of members and alumni and form this very website.
