SAVE THE DATE!!
24th of March is when Pi Media is holding it's AGM to elect a new committee. This is your opportunity to make Pi Media great again!!! If you are interested in running for a position (see below for role descriptions) please send a 100 word blurb to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday March 22nd at 23:59.
The society president is in essence a giant behind-the-scenes role and everything that happens within the society will be their responsibility – a big task considering we are essentially three societies in one. You’ll set magazine deadlines, organize commissioning systems, and liaise with other committee officers to ensure everyone is able to do their job and keep the society going. You’ll also be chief representative of Pi to UCLU, UCL, and external organizations such as the Student Publication Association.
The presidency is very time-consuming and can definitely be stressful at times, but very rewarding when things go right, and absolutely worth the hours you’ll contribute.
The Treasurer works with the President and Vice-President to manage Pi’s annual budget and oversee the Society’s finances. Day-to-day responsibilities include: signing forms, authorising invoices, advising the committee on their departments’ expenditure, and keeping track of the society’s account balance. There are also opportunities to work with the President and Advertising Officer to find sponsorship and advertisers for the Society.
Aside from the main responsibilities mentioned above, the role is very flexible and it’s a great way to get involved with the committee and stay in the know about (and still be involved with) the different areas of Pi!
Vice President looks after the day-to-day running of the society, taking on a number of roles to assist the President throughout the year. They are responsible for weekly emails and organising events alongside the social secretary, but help out with anything. Being Vice President means you become involved with all aspects of the society and try and keep everyone happy.
EIC MAGAZINE x2
Editor-in-Chief of the magazine is an editorial position that is responsible for the production of 4-6 magazines a year. In order to do this, you will need to hold editorials, commission articles, edits articles, and organise design. It is position with many creative opportunities, as you direct the topics and style of the content to create the publication you envisage. Thousands of copies of the magazine are printed each year, meaning that you will be able to engage with more people than any other student event at UCL.
CANDIDATES MAY RUN AS A PAIR IF THEY SO WISH.
EDITOR IN CHIEF ONLINE x2
As online EIC you get complete editorial control of UCL's best student platform (arts awards 2015). This is an opportunity that you would not get again until at least 5 or 10 years as a professional journalist. You liaise with section editors to commission content, feed back improvements that writers can make, report on breaking news events, and get to experiment with different social media promotion methods. Online EIC is a role that can be greatly rewarding if you put the effort in.
CANDIDATES MAY RUN AS A PAIR IF THEY SO WISH.
EDITOR IN CHIEF PiTV
The Editor-in-Chief of PiTV is responsible for everything happening around the TV platform of Pi. Together with the Deputy EIC, the Editor-in-Chief has to work with the group of section editors to create the best content possible in all our sections. The EIC’s main responsibilities include supervising content and production, managing equipment, administration and official communications and all around making sure that PiTV is constantly improving.
DEPUTY EDITOR IN CHIEF, News and Investigations
The Deputy EIC for News and Investigations will be in regular contact with campaigners, UCLU, and the college, to make sure we stay on top of news and investigations coverage and remain UCLU’s main source of student news. This is a great opportunity for anyone with a keen nose for scoops to coordinate and commission news coverage, and make sure the most important stories are out there for all to read!
DEPUTY EDITOR IN CHIEF, PiTV
As Deputy Editor-in-Chief of PiTV you will be responsible for assisting the Editor-in-Chief across all three sections of PiTV (News, Specials, and Entertainment). You will work closely with the section editors to develop show ideas, recruit team members, organise cross-section projects, and just generally helping out with all things TV! You will be expected to help organise and lead meetings with the editors, come up with ways to publicise PiTV’s work, and recruit new members at the beginning of the academic year and in January during Pi’s ‘Refreshers’ week. Of course, you still have plenty of opportunity to get involved with the actual production and filming side of PiTV, though you will always be expected to lend a hand when/where/if needed. The role requires a lot of commitment and you should be prepared to spend time on working with the section editors to plan, produce, and film and edit videos. Overall the position is a lot of fun and is a great opportunity for you to develop you editorial and production skills!
Being Social Sec is a very fun and rewarding position. It allows you to get involved in the inner workings of the society while still having a lot of fun, but it isn't all fun and games. Your responsibilities will include running the weekly socials, organizing alumni events and coming up with new and interesting ways to get people to engage with the society. Also it's probably the committee position that receives the most free drinks, so that's a win.
Responsible for Pi’s ‘brand image’ – the marketing officer is responsible for making Pi visible on campus, including posters for our magazine launches, liaising with UCLU marketing to promote our content, and often designing posters and graphics to represent the society. If you have innovative ideas or design skills that could help us get noticed by more students, this is the job for you!
