What is an AGM?

An Annual General Meeting isn't something scary that's only for big businesses, CEOs, and shareholders! In its simplest terms, it's a yearly meeting the Union holds where we share with you, our member, how the Union as an organisation is performing. It is also a forum for you ask us to address things that you believe the Union should deem important and focus our efforts in addressing.

Why does an AGM matter?

It gives our members (you!) the chance to ask us about what we've been doing over the past year. Cause we've been busy making your student life better and not twiddling our thumbs so we'd love to answer your questions. It also gives you the opportunity to raise any issues you think that we should be dealing with.
