Over the course of the last year and months, your Students’ Guild has been reviewing our democratic structures to ensure that your representation is as effective for you as possible. You can find out a bit more about that here.
To ensure you’ve got all the information you need about how the new system will work and that Term Two’s staggered start doesn’t impact your ability to get involved, we’ve made the decision to reschedule the upcoming elections. The nomination period will now be Monday 8 February – Thursday 25 February, with voting taking place from 16-18 March.
Pushing the elections back by a few weeks from the normal dates gives us a little more time to make sure that the new representation structure works for you – we know from what you’ve told us it’s really important our structures reflect your needs. It also means that you’ve got a bit more time at the start of term to get settled in again, as we won’t be holding nominations during the staggered return to teaching.
We’ll continue to update you with more on this as the process continues. You’ve told us that transparency is really important to you and we’re committed to being as transparent as possible so that you know where things stand. If you want to know more about the democratic review, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you’re looking forward to electing your next student leaders, or even running for a position yourself!
If you want to know more about running as a full-time or part-time Officer please drop me or any member of the Officer team a line. We’d be more than happy to chat to you, and make sure to keep an eye on your emails for election updates. You can also sign up to our mailing list on our teaser page here.
