Alison Chambers ~ Chief Executive

Chair of Guild Council

One of the ways your Students’ Guild is student-led is through Guild Council. Guild Council is a group of elected student representatives and it sits at the heart of the Students' Guild. It exists to represent all students: all students have the right to bring issues for Guild Council's attention and all students can attend. Guild Council does a number of things:

- It is the democratic forum for students.
- Enables the proposal, discussion, and decisions on student policy for the Students' Guild.
- Scrutinises the activity of the Guild and the performance of the Officers.
- Approves student and external Trustees of the Students' Guild.
- Approves changes to our governance (the Articles and Byelaws).

The current members of Guild Council are the Full-Time Officers and College Officers. To find out more about Guild Council, see the website. For the year 2021/22, Guild Council has chosen to appoint an independent Chair.
