    I haven't been officially kicked off anything yet, but the president has basically told me I'm not committed enough to the society and need to start promoting its events more or they will get rid of me. I'm certain he's referring to the fact that I don't share all their events on my own Facebook page, since they ask every committee member to share every event on fb and invite friends to the event. Unfortunately, since a lot of the committee stuff is organised via Messenger, I'm friends with the president on fb so he knows when I don't share things.

    I hardly ever post things on Facebook and don't want to fill up my page with endless events for some university society (it'd be 3+ per week that I'd have to share). I invite my uni friends to the fb event, but he's saying I don't invite enough people and need to invite my whole friends list. I fail to see how inviting my 15 year old cousin who lives in New York is worthwhile?

    I've tried raising these concerns and doing extra things to make up for it - putting up posters in uni accommodation, sending emails round various departments etc. Am I being ridiculous for refusing to share all the events, or what else should I do?

    Hm, does the president or the committee know about the extra things you've done?

    It's pretty pathetic tbh.

    Does your president realise how futile advertising is for univerisites events to people who don't attend your university, or even more silly is that your friends are probably from another city all together?
