Good evening,

For those of you who don't know me yet, my name is Conor and I have been a student at Hull for a year as a fresher and I am running for club secretary.

Since being at university, I have loved every minute of my time, especially my time at the swimming club, and i believe, that i have a duty of being involved in the club at a higher level in order to help the club grow for the future, and also in order to give back to a sports team which has given me so much.

Some of you may not realise how important a club secretary is, due to the fact it encompasses so many roles. A secretary has to act as a main point of contact for the club, undertake the task of administration and communications, including competition events, affiliations, memberships, bookings and mailings. As secretary, I know that I would have the duty of dealing with the day to day running of the club (both internally and externally) Now this is obviously a substantial task and you may ask how I would be able to perform all these tasks? I will tell you.

I believe that I'm a very organised person, who can be depended and relied upon, and this can be seen in the level of effort I put into my assignments, which are always on time. At university I work hard in everything I do and remain dedicated in my activities, as well as my course, business which helps with some of the demands of being secretary due to the fact administration is a key element in both business and being swimming secretary. I am a good listener who is open to advice, I am interested in what everybody has to say at the swimming team, and I am willing to help every single one of you if you need it. I get along well with others as a result of being friendly and open.

Being a secretary isn't all bright and breezy, being a secretary also involves the role of leadership. As secretary, I will help all other members of the commitee to implement and share ideas to help swimming grow and develop. If elected, I will try my

    Action Speaks Louder Than Words “Action speaks louder than words” is an age old proverb with a deep hidden meaning inside. Most of the people have the habit of boasting about what they are going to achieve in the future in an exaggerated form. This sounds crazy but it is indeed true. People have the habit of making castles in the air and actually feeling and boasting that they have achieved a great milestone without actually doing so. It is extremely essential to remember that if your achievements…

    people hear the word 'Secretary' - I'm pretty sure they picture someone behind a desk typing. Yes, this is pretty accurate but a Secretary in whatever field is so much more (and one can indeed spend much time running between their desk and any multitude of places!). I remember learning a spelling mnemonic of sorts at school that Secretaries keep the secrets. Now I realise it's perhaps more to do with the word's derivatives but it's stuck with me!

    In the poem “The Secretary Chant” by Margie Piercy, a woman working as a secretary is depicted as undervalued and unappreciated by her employer. With this poem being written in 1936, the idea of women in the workplace was fairly new. Women were not given equal treatment as employees and were in the beginning stages of their fight for equality. The year the poem was written most certainly plays an integral role in the poem’s tone, structure, diction, and theme. Throughout the poem, it is obvious that…

    The Secretary Chant In life there are things that can take over how to live life and how to be as a person. Take for instance the poem “The secretary chant” by Marge Piercy tells about the dehumanization of a woman in a business role. The secretary no longer sees herself as a woman but rather a collection of office supplies. In the beginning she compares her hips to a desk, this indicates that not only does her life revolve around her job but also physically she is being taken over as well…

    ratings to salary increases would allow the managers to feel more able to rate the secretaries accurately. But I think there should be a new training session (both for administrators and secretaries) to help them understand the new system. Since all secretaries in the past received the same salary increases it would be best to lower the maximum increase to an amount that could be given only to the secretaries with an above good rating or better. 2. Do you think that vice president Winchester…
