The Sabbatical & Trustee elections are coming…
The most exciting week in the Union calendar is right around the corner.
This term sees the Sabbatical & Trustee elections.
These are the big ones, which elect the officers who run the Union on a day to day basis.
All students can run and it’s your chance to shape SUSU for the future, either by nominating yourself and running in the elections, or by supporting or voting for your favourite candidates.
These elections cover the full time paid sabbatical officers:
Vice President Communications
Vice President Academic Affairs
Vice President Welfare & Communities
Vice President Sports Development
Vice President Student EngagementNB- These roles are normally undertaken the year after graduation but any student can take a year out of study to fulfil the role.
We will also be electing the part time unpaid roles of:
Equality & diversity Officer
Ethical and Environmental Officer
Student Trustee (4 available positions)NB- These roles are undertaken by students whilst also studying for their degree.
The Committee organising the Elections have met, and approved the timings and rules for these elections.
I am therefore pleased to announce the ‘must know’ key dates.
Nominations Opening – Monday 6th February 2012
Nominations Closing – Thursday 16th February 2012
Campaigning begins – Thursday 23rd February 2012

Over the next few weeks we will be updating the elections webpage tell you how to run, and just as importantly why to run. Check it out now for a video from Frankie and myself about our journey to a full time sabbatical officer position.
Nb – The Election of Vice President Winchester & Sites has been delayed pending a review of the position, as approved by Decembers Union Council. The review is due to be completed by Sam Ling by the Summer term and elections would potentially be carried out in that term if Council approves
