This is just about it from me: we’ve survived the zombies for an entire year, sometimes by the skin of our teeth. We’ve welcomed the founding members of the Science Community of Otago, all 500+ of you (good work on getting in early by the way! We’ve got a linkedIn page, if you’re into that sort of thing), and entranced you with BBQs and quiz night and the rip-roaring Science Ball.
It’s been a good year, if the ever-decreasing amount of sleep I got is anything to go by. Next year should be even better! The President, Secretary, and Treasurer for 2014 have all been chosen by YOU, THE VOTER, and they’re three capable, vibrant young people that will keep improving on the framework that we built in 2013.
From us, the Executive of 2013, it’s mostly goodbye, although a few of the key movers/shakers/cool cats will be sticking around, either on the executive or to lend the occasional helping hand to ensure things run as smoothly as possible. We’ve learned a lot and made a lot of friends.
The Science Community of Otago is a wonderful community of Science Enthusiasts, and I wish you all the best for 2014.
Over and out.
