The Societies Board exists to affiliate new societies to the Students’ Union and assists in the development, reward and recognition of existing societies. The committee is a subcommittee of Student Council, which means that it reports back to Student Council.
The Board is made up of students who have been a society member or committee member.
There are usually 4 meetings a year, in September, November, February, and March, and for 2020/21 will be taking place online. If you would like to attend a Societies Board meeting, please contact email@example.com, or one of the two chairs (see details below).

If you’re a student and you have an issue you would like the Board to consider, you can submit a motion to the Board. Please use this form to submit your motion. The Students’ Union Representation and Democracy Team can provide guidance if you are unsure how to write your motion. Please contact the team on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a question or need guidance.
