|Student Union Elections|
ARE YOU INTERESTED IN RUNNING THE STUDENT UNION?
We are looking for eight students to join the Student Union Executive Committee.
What does the executive committee do? Elected members of the executive committee manage the day-to-day running of the Henley College Students’ Union. This includes: -
How much time will this take? The executive committee meets for about one hour every week at lunchtime, and you will need to be able to commit additional time in order to attend Governors’ meetings, plan and supervise events, and carry out administrative tasks in order to make the Students’ Union a success. Serving on the committee does count as an Enrichment option, and this activity will look very good on your CV or UCAS application form! However, this is not the only reason to stand. You must want to put the effort in and make a difference to the college.
How do I stand for election? Download the Nomination Form click here >> write your Election Statement and email it to Sue Bishop (email@example.com) by Wednesday 25th March 2015. Elections will take place the week beginning 20th April. Your election statement will be put onto the Student Union website and published in the student newsletter to help people to decide who to vote for.
