Get involved & Shape our Work at the Cooperative Enterprise Units

Wednesday 17-06-2015 - 10:21

Members who work in areas of Extra, Media, Digital, and Purchasing are invited to attend the Cooperative Enterprise Units (CEUs) to provide insight and ideas into these areas The meetings will be led by members, with direction and focus provided by the Direction and Oversight Boards and supported by NUS colleagues.

Helping you get the most from NUS from commercial opportunities

NUS is committed to supporting students’ unions to ensure they remain strategically effective, financially sustainable and well-run organisations with students at their core. The CEUs give members the opportunity to help us achieve this, they provide a space where we can hear from you about the issues that matter within Extra, Media, Digital and Purchasing to achieve the financial and sustainable futures you want.

The CEUs will also give participating members the opportunity to see how your Direction and Oversight Board represents you and for you to have your say in priorities for the year ahead.
