There are loads of ways you can engage with our Officers and hold them to account. Click on the options below to find out how:
AGM (Annual General Meeting)
Annual meetings (or Student Members’ Meetings as they’re sometimes called), are a key part of YUSU’s calendar. All students are invited to attend.
The meetings provide an opportunity for students to review YUSU’s annual report (link to ‘documents’ page and accounts, considering key activities over the past year. It is also a time when students can hold the Sabbatical Officers to account and hear more about their work and the impact they have made across the year. . Meetings will typically include:
ratifying the minutes of the previous meeting
a report from our Trustees on the Union's key activity
receiving the Union's accounts for the previous year
receiving Union affiliations
open questions to the Trustees.
YUSU’s by-laws set how we operate and make decisions as a democratic and member-led charitable organisation. They set out YUSU’s approach to transparency and the ways you can hold elected Officers to account.
