The UAAA is ‘Born Again’

Hi there,

It has been far too long since the University of Alberta Atheists and Agnostics had an active and useful website, but fear not, because with the change in executive is coming a long list of changes and revivals that will rejuvenate our club. We apologize for being disorganized and distant, but promise to hereon keep you informed on all our activities. However, the best way to keep in touch with us is to join our Facebook group and subscribe to our mailing list. Links for all that may be found on the ‘Join Us’ tab on our homepage.

Since it’s been so long, I need to introduce you to your new Executive for the 2014/2015 university year.

President – Alexander Delorme

Vice President – External: Ian Hruday

Vice-President – Operations and Finance: Lewis Lozier

Vice-President – Internal: Drew Armstrong

Junior Vice-President – Communications: Vacant (provisionally filled by Alexander Delorme)

We are all excited to take our club to new heights in the coming year. Feel free to chat us up at any time by finding our personal emails on the ‘Executive’ tab on our homepage. Note that we are looking for an enthusiastic student to fill our VP-Communications position, as our VP-elect had to regrettably resign his position. We really hope to have this position filled by September.

Until next time, heathens,

-Pres. Alexander Delorme
