A new term and it is one of democracy! It would be great to see as many satellite site students as possible getting involved so please read on!
General Meeting of the Guild of Students
As you may or may not know, the trustee board of the guild of students has called a general meeting of the guild. This is the first time this has happened and there are six special resolutions which will be put to the meeting. Every single member of the Guild of Students is able to attend and vote on the resolutions which are being put to the meeting. It is taking place at 6pm on 28th January 2013 in the Avon Room, University centre.
Obviously, as satellite site students you may not be able to make it to this meeting. It would be great if as many people as possible could attend but for those of you who can’t, there is an option for you to nominate a proxy voter who will vote as you instruct, in your place. All of the information about the meeting, including how to nominate a proxy vote, can be found on the guilds website – http://www.guildofstudents.com/main-menu/representation/general-meeting-gm-2013/notice-of-general-meeting-gm. If anyone would like to discuss anything in more detail, please feel free to get in touch!
Guild Officer Team Elections
It is that time of year again when the nominations for the guild officer team are open! The officer team (of which I am one of the non-sabbatical officers) are the elected officers who run the Guild of Students. There are various full (sabbatical) and part time (non-sabbatical) positions available including the Satellite Sites Officer position which is only open to satellite site students!
All of the information about the elections can be found here – http://www.guildofstudents.com/main-menu/representation/elections/guild-officer-elections. Whilst I am not allowed to officially endorse any candidates, I would be happy to discuss the role with anyone who is interested so please feel free to get in touch! Nominations close February 4th!
Emergency Guild Council
An emergency meeting of Guild Council (the highest student decision making body in the Guild) has been called for 22/01/13 to discuss motions which were not discussed at the previous meeting due to time constraints. The information can be found here – http://www.facebook.com/events/352966948143641/355125857927750/?notif_t=plan_mall_activity. If you have any opinions about any of the motions, please get in touch with myself or your guild councillors (I do not have a vote but they do!). All members are welcome to attend this event but if you can’t, it will also be streamed live by GTV which is great for satellite site students!
That’s all for now… Have a good term!
