Executive Review – What next?
After the last Union Council, the decision was made to delay the process of replacing the current Executive team with the make-up of student leaders to ensure full consultation and student involvement took place, and that every issue was fully debated and discussed before Council gave its approval.
Since then we have gone away to ensure a process has now been set up to consult all student groups and that you get a chance to have a firm say on the review. Amongst all of this consultation, it is important to keep one central point for all of the information and input to go, and that is where this blog play a crucial role. Whilst reviewing the Executive structure, we also want to look at the role and structure of Union Council, with a proposal to change it for next year.
Below you will see links to other areas of my blog that discuss certain elements of the student leader proposal; these are in separate places to ensure we have clear and accessible process.
You can also make sure you engage actively in the debate with the following –
This Thursday 17th February – Open forum meeting – Meeting room 2 at the Union – 4pm – 6 pm
Ensuring the matter is discussed at your Standing Committee – It should be on the agenda for all of your committees but do make sure your committee has a conversation on the matter and feeds back where necessary
Feburary 24th – March 3rd - Open Box for comments to be on Union Concourse during elections week
Monday 14th March – Union Council to debate final proposal for Exec Review and the new structure of the Union Council
Please make sure that you have YOUR say on the change of structure to your Union. All of the information put on these blogs is there to encourage thought, debate and dicussion on the issue. The Executive team will follow comments and debates closely and will take them board when making their decisions on the review.
