Welcome to the home of the University of Birmingham Atheist, Secular and Humanist Society (UB:ASH)! We’re an emerging uni society aiming to bring together like minded people for discussion, debate and the occasional pint. We also hope to provide a secular voice on campus and to promote equal representation for those without faith. We have between 50-60 recorded members (though many more unrecorded – you guys need to sign up!) and an active online community which can be found in our facebook group.
We organise and host a variety of events including pub socials, lectures and film screenings, as well as attending larger events within the Birmingham area and beyond! For further details please have a look at our facebook or events page or contact any of our committee members. Our events are open to everyone (theist or not!) so come down and say Hi :).
|President: Amber Wright
El Presidente, The Ginger Ninja, Amblina The Internet Fairy, or simply Roo….this lady of a thousand names steers the good ship UB:ASH, while also doing ICY Computer Science as part of her Bioscience degree. Moar cake, moar lulz…these are the forces which fuel her every waking moment. Smart, capable, but far too modest to say so herself, we couldn’t do without her. In a word? Awesomesauce :).
|Secretary: Benjamin Mee (aka. Paperwork ninja)
Ben is also doing an ICY but as part of an English degree. Mee The Merciless is one of the founding fathers of UB:ASH, last year’s president, and the AHS Regional Development Officer (RDO) for the West Midlands. His metal is heavier than yours. His hobbies include wearing black, drinking ale and conquering the planet. Resistance is futile etc.
|Treasurer: Kathy Draxlbauer
Fräulein Draxelbauer is a student nurse, adept at saving lives, and keeping three kinds of cheesecake in the fridge at all times. She is the Helium to Ben’s Strindberg, and the eager recipient of Amber’s fanfic overflow. As UB:ASH treasurer, her ruthless Austrian efficiency is unparalleled.
|Publicity: Simon Constable
Si is a hermit who lives under a hat. The hat contains a lifetime’s supply of drone metal (three songs). Once a month, Si emerges for a cheeky roll-up, and is surprisingly jovial when encountering other humans. He studys Ancient History, and is in charge of UB:ASH propaganda.
