During Students’ Unions 2015 we will be holding the elections for the students’ union officer positions on NUS Services enterprise boards. There are eight vacancies on the NUS Services Direction and Oversight Boards to be elected by participating members of NUS extra, NUS Media, NUS Digital and the purchasing consortium.


What are the NUS Services Direction and Oversight Boards?
There are four Direction and Oversight Boards to support the work of each Cooperative Enterprise Unit. These boards are made up of students’ unions officers, staff, external members and NUS Services Board directors. The boards review activity and help set the direction of work in each enterprise. They also facilitate the meetings of the Cooperative Enterprise Units of participating students’ unions to consider new initiatives.

Why stand for election?
This is your opportunity to get involved in the decision making of NUS Services enterprise activity. Feedback from past board volunteers has been positive, here’s what they said;

“Gives a bigger picture view of the challenges and opportunities facing unions, which helps give different perspective of thinking back in my own union.”

“Great opportunity to have input into NUS, and so understand what challenges and opportunities the organisation faces. You will get out as much as you put in – there is much untapped resource within NUS which I guarantee you’ll be able to bring back to your own unions and to others.”

How to become a candidate?
To become a candidate you must fill in the nomination form and have two student officers from different students’ unions that participate in the Cooperative Enterprise Unit to nominate you. Nominations open on Wednesday 1 July 2015 and close at 18:00 Tuesday 7 July 2015 at Students’ Unions 2015.
