Societies and Volunteering Executive Committees
We want all members of the Students’ Union to be able to get involved and shape the work that we do. One of the ways you can get involved is through the elected officers executive committees or associations.
Each Sabbatical Officer has at least one executive committee which is designed to shape and support the work of the elected officers. This could include supporting them in the development of policy, running outreach activity, or simply putting on events and activities students want to see.
The Vice Preisdent Societies and Volunteering has three different executive committees. These are the Societies Executive Committee, the Volunteering Executive Committee, and the Student Media Executive Committee. Each of these committees have their own membership.
The Societies Executive Committee has 25 members, 18 elected through a cross-campus ballot and seven representatives selected with approval of the societies forum amongst society committee members - with each one representing one of the seven categories of students' union societies. All members of the Societies Executive Committee must be members of the Guild of Societies.
The Volunteering Executive Committee has 10 members, six elected through a cross-campus ballot and four selected with approval of the appropriate forum. All members of the Volunteering Executive Committee must be a member of a volunteering project or R.A.G groups.
The Student Media Executive Committee has 12 members, eight elected through a cross-campus ballot and the four approved Heads of Student Media. All members of the Student Media Executive Committee must be a member of one of the Student Media groups.
As mention above, there are two ways to successfully be appointed to the Societies and Volunteering Executive Committees. You can either opt to run in the Autumn Election process and be elected via cross campus ballot, or apply via the selection process where you will be interviewed by a panel including the Vice President Societies and Volunteering. Successful candidates will then be approved by the relevant forum.
