How can I get involved?

The Union holds an Annual General Meeting, or AGM, once per year in the final term, and the date is published on our democracy calendar. At this meeting, the Trustee Board will present on the Union's Finances for the previous year, detail all of the organisations the union has affiliated with on your behalf and outline any key impacts it has had over the past year. The AGM is a great opportunity for you to ask the Board any questions and hold them to account.

Plus, we're looking for student trustees to join the team! Read more and apply by 6th June 2024.
