Welcome Committee Members,
Here we have created a library of resources, especially for you. Throughout your time as a committee member you will need the documents available here to assist your society’s activity on a regular basis. So, without further ado, take a look at the selection below and download whatever your society currently needs!
The best way to get advice about running a successful society is by attending Committee Training. Email your SU at email@example.com for more info!
This is where you'll find EVERYTHING you need to know about running and participating in student activities.
The document that outlines how Activities should function.
All students involved in your society must follow the Code of Conduct. Once a member has paid membership, they must sign the form above and hand it back to SU reception.
Outlines the principles, procedures and aims your society will follow throughout the academic year. This ensures your society outlines and upholds the good practice which is expected from members at all times. All societies must adopt one and revise their constitution at each AGM.
The Activities Committee will serve to develop the wide variety of societies/sports across campuses. It's made up of all signatory roles for each student activity and meets once a term to discuss changes and ways to move forward within the activities department. This is a document explaining what it is for, what you can do and how to submit a motion.
This is a document to collate all of the member's thoughts and ideas about the direction of the society. You'll be able to set targets and review your progress here. You should complete a development plan at the start and end of every academic year (during your AGM/EGM) and ensure all members have contributed.
You must complete a risk assessment form for every event your society puts on and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org at least two weeks before your event. If, for whatever reason, you are unable to complete a risk assessment, you must email email@example.com.
An AGM (annual general meeting) is a yearly meeting to discuss changes and so information can be distributed to committee members of clubs and societies and the general student body. All members are expected to attend and it is mandatory for societies to host one. The document attached is used to help guide your society’s AGM.
You must fill out an event form if you’re inviting non UOS student/staff to your event or if your event has over 15 people attending. This must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org at least two weeks before the event.
A contract you sign once elected, taking on full responsibility of the organisation and it's assets. Sign and hand in to SU reception.
Fill out if you can not fulfil your responsibilities as a committee members anymore and need to step out. Then send it to email@example.com
This is where you can apply to start a new society! Make sure you've read our Activities Guidebook first though!
This form is for anyone wishing to re-activate a disaffiliated/dissolved society. The society takeover will automatically be accepted as long as the three signatory roles can be filled: President, Treasurer and Secretary, and the society wasn’t disaffiliated do to a breach in the code of conduct/ activities bye-laws. You may wish to email firstname.lastname@example.org about the circumstances in which the society dissolved and how we can offer support in running the organisation again.
This is where you will spend as a society, and then apply to get this reimbursed
This is where you'll request the SU to make a purchase on your behalf
