NUS Wales Welsh Language Conference Delegates

Delegates at the NUS Wales Welsh Language Conference 2013 have elected Jacob Dafydd Ellis as Welsh Language Officer for the next year. 

Delegates also passed each one of the four motions that were submitted, creating policy on student representation structures at the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol, the 2011 Welsh Language Measure, increasing the use of the Welsh language in further education colleges and collaboration with the Association of Celtic Students.

Jacob Ellis (Aberystwyth University Students’ Union) will take over from Adam Jones, the current Welsh Language Officer, in July.

This is what Jacob had to say about the conference, and what he hopes to achieve next year.

Guto Gwilym was elected as Steering Officer, and Mared Ifan, Anne-Marie Llewellyn and Steffan Evans were elected as committee members.

The Welsh Language Conference was the fourth of this week’s NUS Wales Liberation Conferences 2013.
