Hi, I’m Millie, I’m your JCR Secretary for the next year! I study English and I’m from Devon.
The Secretary oversees a lot of typical administrative tasks to ensure that the JCR runs effectively, such as assembling the meeting agendas and taking the minutes. These are then distributed to inform college of the outcome of motions proposed and voted on by members of the JCR. The Secretary is also part of the Executive Committee. They liaise between the student body and the college’s governing faculty, also acting as Hilda’s representatives to the university. The Secretary is also responsible for organising the Rachel McLean Prize in Trinity Term which is awarded for service to college life. Arguably though, the Secretary’s most important task is to write the Loo News, the weekly spoof ‘Hilda’s Headlines’ that you will find in the college toilets!
