What & When is the AGM?
Although it is short for the dreary term 'Annual General Meeting', the AGM is anything but so! On the evening of the 15th of April club members will gather online to vote in the next committee.
Who are the Committee?
The committee are a group of SUHC members who are responsible for maintaining the club and running events for the year running between AGMs. There are seven different roles in the committee and a total of 10 positions (some roles are shared between two members).
Who can run for a role?
Any student member of the club may run for a position, so long as they are a member of SUSU and have our Free Day Walk Membership! This year, committee positions can be held by alumni and non-students under these conditions.
Why should YOU run for a role?
After all that has happened in the past year, it is clear that the club is about to enter a new chapter. This is your chance to set new traditions, plot new paths and (hopefully) bring people back together in a world that has fought hard to throw them apart. Each elected member will receive all relevant training from their predecessors.
Ask almost all committee members, there is something very rewarding about volunteering within this club. Some may suggest, that leaving the committee is probably harder than choosing to join it!
How do I run for a role?
You may nominate yourself for one or multiple roles before the AGM using the form linked to by green buttons in the sections below (or at the bottom of this email). You may also choose to nominate yourself on the night by making the president aware.
On the night each nominee performs a short speech to the members to help them decide who they think is most suitable for the role. Once all nominees for a role have spoken, we vote!
I don't want to run, can I still vote?
Of course! The more members who come to vote, the better the committee members can represent our club! On the night of the AGM (15th April) you’ll simply need to join the session via a link we will send out, and then we will take care of everything else for you.
