Thank you to retiring Committee members

The Oxford Hayek Society wish to thank two Committee Members who are stepping down at the end of this term for all their hard work.

Our thanks go to Wojciech Woźnicki, who has been most valued for his support in booking meeting venues, and to Sammy Jordan, whose thorough work supporting financial matters has been fundamental to securing the Society’s future.

Wojciech will be leading the Oxford Forum from next term to further the cause of freedom of speech within Oxford University and we wish him very well in this endeavour. Sammy is returning to George Mason University to continue her studies after a term abroad on a visiting student programme and hopes to return in the future for postgraduate studies: we look forward to welcoming her back to the Committee.

Christmas Party and next meeting

Thank you to everyone who came to the end of term social! It was a pleasure to catch up with many regular members and especially to meet several people who came to a Hayek Society event for the first time, keen to find out more about our activities and how to get involved. I hope to see you all at our next event!

Thank you very much to Andrew and Debbie Hall at the Rose and Crown for your splendid hospitality. Thank you also to the Institute of Economic Affairs and the Taxpayers’ Alliance for reading materials to take away that provoked much discussion.

Below are some photos of the event.

After the Christmas holidays, our next meeting will be on 18 January with Ryan Bourne, an event that was rescheduled from this term. Mr. Bourne, Head of Public Policy and Director of the Paragon Initiative at the Economic Affairs, will speak to us on and refute the theories of Piketty, whom he has debated on UK nation TV. Venue details to follow.

Have a good holiday and see you all in Hilary Term!

 

Best wishes,

Lydia
