Welcome Committee Members,
Here we have created a library of resources, especially for you. Throughout your time as a President, Secretary or Treasurer, 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. This takes place during September every year. The next date for this is: September 12th 2019 @ 4pm. Email your SU at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info!
All students involved in your society must follow the Code of Conduct. By signing up to your society online, you are agreeing to adhere to this code.
Changed your committee recently? Need to let the Student Activities Coordinator know who’s new? keep an up-to-date copy of who your Committee is and send it onto the Coordinator.
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. Ensure all members approve and sign it.
This is an exceptional document to collate all members’ thoughts and ideas about the direction of the society. You should complete a development plan at the end of every academic year (during your AGM, more about this later) and ensure all members sign and approve it.
At the beginning of every academic year, all committee members should complete an individual development plan. In doing so, you will be invited to outline all of the targets and goals you wish to achieve during your time in your role. You will also be invited to explore the ways in which you can achieve the targets you set. You will then be invited to review your progress in line with your goals and the actions set out in this plan at committee meetings and at your society's AGM. You can also discuss and review your progress or any obstacles you may be facing with SU staff, just pop in and see us.
You must complete a risk assessment form before every event your society puts on. If, for whatever reason, you are unable to complete a risk assessment, a fellow Committee member must do so on your behalf.
Every year all societies compete for the chance to win the Society of the Year Award. When a society is first formed, it is entered into the Society Rewards Scheme. The scheme itself is comprised of a number of different criteria which societies race to fulfil in order to win points throughout the year. At the end of the year, the points are totalled and the society with the most is crowned Society of the Year.
Outlines what an AGM is and what it involves. This document also breaks down and explains the AGM Agenda.
