Find out what happened during the third and final day of National Conference in Brighton.
National Conference begun today with discussions on the final proposals within the Annual General Meeting (AGM) session, which focused on our ‘Articles and Rules’.
Today also saw delegates cast their votes in three elections; deciding on representatives for our National Executive Council: Block of 15, Democratic Procedures Committee (DPC) and our new Student Trustees.
Ballots for each of the above elections will be counted on Monday 25 April at our London office and results will be published on NUS Connect following approval from the Chief Returning Officer (CRO).
For our final two sessions, delegates voted to adopt policy passed at recent Liberation and Sections conferences into the main NUS policy document before deciding on which policies from National Conference 2013 to keep or lapse.
National Conference 2016 came to a formal close with remarks from outgoing National President Megan Dunn who said: “I am proud to have worked in this movement, to have led it and to have grown up in it. Thank you.”
We wish all delegates and guests a safe journey back home.
