What you need to know about the Society Board
The Societies Board was founded in Summer 2017. It empowers our societies by giving you a platform to direct how societies should be run and maintained. This includes looking over any new society applications, granting funds to societies that apply for money for their activities, and voting on any important policies relating to student activities.
The board will be made up of the Vice-President Community & Wellbeing, the Societies Officer, and ten Society Representatives (two reps per society category; Academic, Faith, Cultural & International, Political & Campaigning, Special Interest).
The Board dates are as follows for the 2020-21 year:
- Round 1: October 21
- Round 2: November 18
- Round 3: December 16
- Round 4: January 27
- Round 5: February 24
- Round 6: March 17
