Hi everyone, 

Hope your work is going well. I am working hard to finish my thesis.  
I am taking a break to let you know about events that are coming up that you could get involved in. Next week is the AGM, whilst on the 1st of April we are having Pizza with the Pro Vice Chancellor of Research Professor Kay Weaver. 

2014 PGSA AGM 

Date: March 26, 2014
Time: 2-3 pm
Location: M 3.03 in the Student learning Centre (Library)

We are looking for more people to be involved on our executive for 2013/2014, and help us to support the postgraduate student body at Waikato. 

If you are at all interested please come along to the meeting or contact Carrie Swanson on cjs123 for more information. 

Postgraduate Pizza Social Event 

All postgraduate students are invited to a pizza social networking event organised by the PGSA. Professor Kay Weaver will be attending. This is a opportunity to talk to other research students, build networks and share the journey. 

Location: Level Zero, M.0.02
Date: 1st April 2014
Time: 5 - 6pm

Please RVSP to Carrie on cjs123 by March 31st so we can ensure we have sufficient pizza. If you have specific dietary needs, please advise.

Postgraduate Presentation Series
We offer students who are approaching confirmation or a conference an opportunity to present their work to an audience of their peers. This generally occurs once a month. We are planning to have it at Level Zero once a month, followed by coffee. If you want to present can you please email Carrie on cjs123. 

Peer Publications Group
We are planning to start a publications group where research students support each other to prepare articles for publication. This will involve some writing, peer feedback, and accountability. We also envisage that we will invite speakers and get mentoring as appropriate.  If you are interested please email me on cjs123. This group will start in April. More details to follow.

Postgraduate Research and Student Experience Committees

I will be attending these committees in early April. If you have any issues or anything you wish me to raise, can you please contact me on cjs123
