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 for more info!


Activities Guidebook

This is where you'll find EVERYTHING you need to know about running and participating in student activities.


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. 

Society Development Plan

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.
