> Make your voice heard this month at the Annual General Meeting.
This year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) is fast approaching and if you want to have your say about the Students’ Union, it is essential you go along and make your voice heard. On Thursday 24 November, the AGM will take place on Frenchay Campus, with the board of trustees, all the elected offices, and a member of every sports club, network and society in attendance.
The AGM’s primary goal is to help determine the direction that UWESU will take over the next year, ensuring it is on the path that students want it to follow and is beneficial for everyone at the university. Following that, the meeting’s subsequent objective is to reflect on everything that has happened since July this year, for example, the way funds have been spent or what the elected offices have done with their time.
The meeting will be entirely transparent and open for any student to go along, have their say and find out information. Students will also be permitted to read through the annual report on how money was spent and ask any questions they feel are relevant. The more students that attend, the better, as this allows the Students’ Union to get an overall impression of what they have achieved or failed on. Also at the meeting, Liam Burns, the NUS President will be present as a guest-speaker, delivering a talk that will reflect on everything he thinks the Students’ Union needs to be doing as tuition fees rise and the student/institute relationship changes.
The meeting will begin at 6pm and will go on until around 9pm in room 2D67. Registration for the meeting opens at 5.30pm, so make sure to get there in plenty of time if you want to have your say.
