filling in delegates’ packs;

registering delegates on the first day and taking cash payments;

sorting out late registration and payments

Susan Halstead for

for the cake and gingerbread St Basil’s

Antje Brauer-Maxaeia for 

liaising with caterers and placing the catering order;

liaising with IT support about equipment;

receiving the presentations the day before and getting them on the laptop;

taking laptop and projector down and returning them to the office where they live;

liaising with SSEES Director’s Office about use of the common room (nice and cool on the day!), and moving furniture, borrowing a few extra chairs from the JCR and putting them back;

drawing up signs and putting them up the day before, and taking them down afterwards;

running down to the Library to tell the staff to make arrangements about bags, which was overlooked earlier
