Conpulsion Liaison Nominations

Hey there Adventurers,
As you might remember from our recent AGM, we decided to postpone the election of a new Conpulsion Liaison. As exam season is now beginning to wind down, it’s time to open up nominations for the role.
Conpulsion is GEAS’s annual TTRPG convention, which’s been taking place since 1987, making it Scotland’s oldest gaming convention. It usually takes place in April at Teviot Row House; however, this year’s con ran online via the Gather Town platform. Unfortunately, we don’t currently know whether Conpulsion 2022 will be able to take place in person.

Although GEAS does run the convention, the event is planned by a sub-committee with support from the main GEAS committee. Your primary role will be communicating between the two committees as needed. Unfortunately, the position is only open to students.

You’ll be expected to:

  • Attend meetings with both committees.
  • Relay information between them.
  • Communicate with EUSA on behalf of the Conpulsion Director if they aren’t also a student.

Like with other committee roles an election will be held, in this case via an online ballot. As usual, only matriculated students can vote and you will need to sign in with your University of Edinburgh Office365 account to access the ballot platform.

If you have any questions or you’d like to apply to be the Conpulsion Liaison, then get in touch with us at geas.committee. Please send us a short message about yourself and why you’d like to take on the role for us to include on the ballot.

The deadline for applications will be the 4th of June at 6 pm, with voting opening the following day.

Thanks for reading,
Sophie Hine
GEAS Secretary
