This week our SU Officers have headed off to Harrogate to attend the annual NUS National Conference.
Our Bath delegates this year are SU President Alex, Community Officer Blake, Sport Officer Elizabeth, Education Officer Julia and delegates Titus Hillier and Esther Jennings- Kirk and they will spend two days (Wednesday 15 and Thursday 16) representing the voice of our student body.
NUS is an organisation led by students and SU’s. Every year, they run a series of events to bring students together, discuss issues and build campaigns. The National Conference
is a space for delegates from across the UK to come together and set policy for the year ahead. The National Conference consists of two full days of drop-ins, policy workshops and debates.
This year, the 5 key policy areas being discussed and voted on are:
NUS Organising, Transparency and Democracy
Tackling the Cost-of-Living Crisis
The delegates will also have the opportunity to elect two democratic bodies of the NUS- the Procedures and Steering Committee and the National Scrutiny Council. You can find out more about decision making at National Conference on their website.
