We are rapidly approaching Week 9 of Term 2 which means it will soon be time again for our Annual General Meeting, or AGM!!! During this meeting, we will recap the past year and, of course, elect the new exec committee for the academic year 2022/23!! You’ll find the role descriptions below, along with the names of the people who currently hold those roles. If you wish to officially nominate yourselves, please fill in the google form linked at the bottom of this page with a couple of bullet points for your presentation during the AGM. In those bullet points, briefly describe what position you would like to go for and why you would be a good fit for the role you’re running for.

Post-Graduate Office [Chris Miles] – The Post-Graduate officer will focus on ensuring post-graduate students are accommodated within the club. The post-graduate community is perhaps the hardest to reach and engage with, so this person will ensure, through social media, PHD groups and returner-events, that this community is aware of our campus presence and welcomed to all our events.
