Who's Who in the Committee?
Events Coordinator 2018-19:
2nd Year NatSci
Georgie is in charge of inviting all the speakers you guys get to hear from and meet, and puts on most of the events we have.
Georgie loves travelling and hiking. She particularly enjoys exploring tropical rainforests and hopes to work in conservation after finishing her Bio NatSci degree.
2nd Year Earth Sciences
Hamilton oversees the running of CUEX and is responsible for its overall direction.
Hamilton comes from San Diego and spent his formative years crisscrossing western North America, and enjoys any time spent outside. He hopes to grow CUEX's reach in Cambridge and get lots of expeditions going this year.
Events Coordinator 2017-2018:
Sally Pearson, 3rd year Geography
Sally organises the speaker events and workshop sessions for CUEX, as well as all the social events such as swaps, pub meets and film nights. We host regular events for society members to become inspired, to get to know each other and to plan for the expeditions.
Sally is from the Yorkshire Dales and dreams of becoming an expeditions doctor. Her recent overseas destinations include Morocco, Burkina Faso and Nepal, and encourages fellow travellers in the society to fulfil their own expedition dreams.
Richard Hibble, 3rd Geography
As our treasurer, Ricky looks after our accounts and keeps us in the black.
Ricky has sought to tie his study to adventure, a recent highlight a week in the Atlas Mountains, experiencing his first snow walking at the summit of Toubkal as an add on to the end of a fieldtrip. Having spent part of the summer working on the Isle of Eigg, he is looking forward to getting involved with CUEX, and seeing where it could lead.
Billy Zhao, 2nd year
As our secretary, Billy is responsible for keeping us all organised. He takes our meeting minutes, writes up action lists, orders stash and keeps our mailing list under control. He is the person to contact about membership. Billy will also be our chief point of contact for alumni, and will work with Chase this year to begin organising our vast archives.
Billy is really into backpacking and trekking. Most of the expeditions he has done took place in China, where he comes from. Billy is looking forward to joining big expeditions in the future.
Publicity Officer 2017-18:
Franny Schlicke, 3rd year Geography
Franny’s job is promoting all the fantastic events on offer each term – from talks to socials to micro-expeditions – so that nobody can miss all the brilliant activities hosted by CUEX!
Coming from the north of Scotland, Franny loves exploring the spectacular hills, lochs and beaches of the Highlands, as well as travelling a bit farther afield… She has travelled to America’s Pacific North-West and to Europe, and dreams of one day working her way down the Amazon.
3rd year Engineering
Archivist is a new position in the society. Billy came to share Chase's (previous president of the society) passion for discovering and sharing interesting expeditions in the past. Billy is going to continue Chase's project on interactive map and Billy is also going to catalog more archives and put them online. Billy is also looking into engaging with social media.
Billy is really into backpacking and trekking. Most of the expeditions he has done took place in China, where he comes from. Billy was in Georgia, helping TCT with trail building last summer. Billy is looking forward to joining big expeditions in the future and doing more cool stuff
