THE DCS 2021 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
The DCS Annual General Meeting is a great way for our current and new members to hear about the year DCS has had in 2021. In addition, it gives all members the ability to become a part of the committee for 2022. All members will be given the chance to apply for, attend and vote for their 2022 committee. You must be a member in order to attend and vote.
The DCS is one of Deakin’s largest academic societies and allows students to really get the most out of their university experience. Not only will you be able to gain practical skills to aid you in your future careers, you will also have the chance to meet likeminded and driven individuals, forming lifelong friendships.
All AGM attendees must be paid members of the club. Only current Deakin students who hold a valid club membership can vote at the AGM. Non-Deakin students that hold a valid club membership are able to attend the AGM but are unable to vote.
