We recently announced the Zone Conferences, which will take place in Stratford-Upon-Avon on the 25-27 October. This is your chance to be a voice for FE on a National level and shape the work of NUS.
FE unions can send delegates to all zones, but to help reduce cost we have ensured that places for each zone committee are elected at the Further Education Zone and Higher Education Zone Conferences. This means the delegates of FE Unions are able participate in all the elections for FE reserved places which will be taking place on the morning of Day 2 of the FE Zone Conference.
Tuesday 25 - Wednesday 26 October: Further Education Zone and Higher Education Zone Conferences
Wednesday 26 - Thursday 27 October: Society & Citizenship Zone, Union Development Zone and Welfare Zone Conferences
