The DCS Annual General Meeting is a great way for our current and new members to hear about the year DCS had in 2020. In addition, give all members the ability to become a part of the committee for 2020. All members will be given the chance to apply for, attend and vote for their 2021 committee. You must be a member in order to attend and vote.
The DCS is one of Deakin’s largest academic societies and gives students the chance 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 that 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. If a student club member cannot meet the requirements, they will be unable to vote.
