NUS UK Liberation Conference - delegates are elected through each assoicaition. The conference will take place 27th May 2020 - 29th May 2020.
Information from the NUS UK Website
The NUS UK Liberation Conference has a fixed delegate entitlement for each Union. The number of delegates you can send is not linked to your student numbers.
Each Union may send a maximum of six delegates. The six delegate spaces are reserved for delegates who self-define into the groups which are represented at Liberation Conference. The reserved places are as follows:
• One Black* Student
• One additional place for a Black* Woman Student
• One Trans Student
• One LGBT+ Student
• One Disabled Student
• One Woman Student
Delegates that self-define into multiple Liberation groups may participate, vote, speak and contribute to any of the caucuses they are eligible to attend.
Our Liberation officers have urged Unions this year to prioritise the participation of Black Students (particularly Black Women) and Disabled Students. Therefore Students’ Unions are asked to prioritise these places when sending delegates. If you are unable to do this you’ll be asked to indicate this as part of the registration process to let Democratic Procedures Committee know why you are unable to fill these spaces.
There is no requirement for a cross-campus ballot for these delegates, however if you choose to select your delegates we would advise you do this in conjunction with Liberation Societies within your Students’ Union.
*the NUS use Black to mean students from African, Asian, Arab and Caribbean heritage
