The JOMEC Society
The Journalism Society is the school's official society under the banner of Cardiff University's Students' Union. It was founded by Miles McCormack in 2012. However, the name was shortened to the JOMEC Society when the new committee took over in 2013, as a way of ensuring its close relationship with the Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies.
Since 2013, the society has held numerous events throughout the year including annual trips to BBC Wales and BBC London, a Spring Ball, and industry talks from the likes of the presenters of BBC Scrum V, as well as regular alcoholic and non-alcoholic socials.
In 2013/14 they were sponsored by Microsoft Windows and Cardiff Nightclub Vodka Revolution, and in 2014/15 by Dominos Pizza.
The society generally consists of a team of 10-12 members including the President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Social Secretary, Inclusions Officer, Social Media Officer and General Officers.
