Fresher's fayre - 2012 A very successful fresher's fayre this year, we signed up 37 paid members to the society, and generated a lot of interest from students on many different courses across the university .

Children in Need bun sale - 2012 After our bun sale in 2011 which swept all SU publications and local press by storm we decided to step it up a gear this year with an online ordering system to ensure we were able to supply some yummy cup cakes and treats to as many staff and students as possible. Thanks to the management of Katie King the ordering system proved a success and we beat last years total by £200 raising a fantastic total of £1000 for Children In Need. Society members were invited to the BBC for the Children in Need party to celebrate their hard work and dedication to the charity every year and made it into all SU publications and local press. Something most people don’t know is that the marketing society bun sale is the most successful bun sale ever to have taken place at the University of Ulster! Go team!

Make a Wish Fashion show - March 2013 For the first time the Marketing Society hosted a Fashion show in the Merchant Hotel, Belfast. The event was enjoyed by students, lecturers, local businesses, family members and our charity representatives from Make A Wish. Under the management of Emma Sharkey the event was a great success and reached national press. Being a charity close to our hearts we were delighted to see Jane’s family at the event and Miss Northern Ireland even made an appearance on the night. A massive thank you and congratulations to Emma and her team of organisers who raised over £300 on the night, and we look forward to the Fashion Show returning in 2014.

Dodge ball - RAG WEEK 2013 The Marketing Society has always been a main contributor to RAG Week in the university. This year we had one of our members elected onto the RAG Committee in Jordanstown, Catherine Isted - who went on to win ‘RAGer of the Year’ at the Student Union Recognition Awards held in April 2013. Our RAG event for 2013 was a Dodge Ball tournament, everyone who took part had a ‘ball’ - and we were strongly supported by the Law Society at this event.

Marketing Society Formal - 2013 Another great night for all marketing students took place in the Europa Hotel, Belfast at our annual formal. Students from all years joined by lecturers enjoyed the evening of entertainment and the lovely meal in the penthouse suite overlooking the city. A great event to bring the year to a close, and celebrate the hard work and dedication of all our staff and students. A big thank you must go to Mark Marwood for all his hard work throughout the year and to Michaela who supported him along the way; liaising with the final year students and organising the awards for the night. Well done folks. v

Students Union Recognition Awards - 2013 At the beginning of the year, we made it our goal to achieve GOLD society status; with our Events and Students Union Co-Ordinator - Chris Shannon creating strong links with the SU on Jordanstown campus and ensuring progress throughout the year to ensure the society achieved the requirements needed for GOLD. At the event held on Magee campus in April 2013 the Marketing Society were delighted to have received GOLD, but also to have been awarded ‘Society of the year’ over all four campuses. Not only has the society been recognised for its successful events and other initiatives for students on the BSc Marketing course, but some members of the society also received awards on the night. Catherine Isted, a first year student on the BSc Marketing program and next years Charity and SU Co-Ordinator was awarded ‘RAGer of the year’ for her contributions during RAG (Raise and Give) week on the Jordanstown Campus. Chris Shannon our current Events and SU Co-Ordinator and second year Marketing student was awarded the ‘Outstanding Contribution Award’ for his services to the Students Union through the society and at national level. A great night for the Marketing Society and the BSc Marketing Program.

Make a Wish - Chosen charity 2012/13 The Make a Wish Foundation was chosen as this year’s nominated charity in memory of Jane Shields, a very inspirational Year 2 student who sadly passed away last year. Touched by the unique experience Jane had with the foundation, the society made it their goal to raise money for this charity in memory of their classmate. The Make a Wish Foundation grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. There are 20,000 children and young people living in the UK with a life-threatening condition and it is their aim to grant a wish to every one of them. This global and national based organisation is renowned for its efforts in creating spectacular moments in the lives of children and young adults.

Thank you for all the support in the year 2012/13 On behalf of The Marketing Society I would like to thank all of the staff and students from the BSc Marketing program for their continuous support throughout the year. I believe the society has certainly met it’s aim of establishing connections and a sense of community between the different year groups on the BSc Marketing course. I wish the new committee all the best for the year ahead and look forward to the events and successes to come in 2013/14. Best wishes, Chris Shannon - Event and Students Union Co-Ordinator - 2012/13 v
