Grainger gone

2016 VUWSA Treasurer-Secretary and 2017 Treasurer-elect George Grainger has resigned from the role for 2017.

The resignation comes just two weeks after Grainger won the position on next year’s executive.

Grainger wrote on Facebook that the “demanding role” has seen him go “up to and beyond my limits this year to give the Association what it needs,” putting his resignation down to his overcommitting and “giving too much.”

With regard to the now vacant position, 2017 VUWSA President-elect Rory Lenihan-Ikin says that “without the time to properly conduct a by-election before the end of trimester in 2016, the 2017 Executive will appoint an acting Treasurer in 2017 until a by-election can be held as soon as practicable in the new year.”

VUWSA President Jonathan Gee said he understands George’s reasons for resigning and “wishes him all the best for the future.”

It has not yet been confirmed whether Dayle Vavasour will run for the role after coming in second place to Grainger in the recent election.

Grainger says he will handover and train next year’s Treasurer, so VUWSA hopefully won’t go under.
