Stand For Election Phone In

Tuesday 24-01-2017 - 11:38

The Chief Returning Officer is holding an Elections Phone-In day from 9am until 5pm on 1st February 2017 for any candidates or prospective candidates who have questions about the NUS Election process

It’s that time of year again where excitement builds about who is going to stand for elections. Across colleges and campuses, students are weighing up a big decision: whether to stand for election to lead NUS.

Students and students’ union officers standing for election to be an NUS Full Time Officer or a member of one of our committees is probably the most well-known path to volunteering with us. These roles are vital to ensuring the student voice will be heard, important issues will be addressed, and changes can be made.

There are also over 200 voluntary roles available in NUS’ governance ranging from being an elected NUS Officer, a council member or a director.

This conference season there are over 100 elections taking place:

National Elections

Liberation Elections

Sections Elections

Nation Elections

We encourage you to think about standing for these positions. Anyone who is a student or elected sabbatical officer at a Students’ Union/Association affiliated to NUS can stand for election. There's a lot you can gain from the elections process, whether you win or not. You’ll learn valuable skills in campaigning, public speaking, listening to others, project planning, leadership and team working.

If you’re thinking about standing and have any questions about the elections process and opportunities call in on 1st February 9am until 5pm on 08455 210 262 (Option 2 then Option 4).
