Delegate Entitlement

Each Students Union is entitled to a number of delegates with full voting and speaking rights. Delegates shall be selected by each Constituent Member by an election where only Members of the Campaign at that Constituent Member may vote.

How to work out your delegate entitlement -

Basic Delegate Entitlement of every union: 

  1. One Open Place member (open to any LGBT+ student)
  2. One Trans Place member (open to any student who defines as trans)
  3. One QTIPOC Place member (open to Queer Trans Intersex People of Colour who define as African, Middle Eastern, Afro-Caribbean or Asian descent; and/or descended from the indigenous populations of the Americas and/or the South Pacific). Please note following rules revision at LGBT+ Conference 2018 this position replaces the Black Place member
  4. One Women’s Place member (open to any LBT+ student who defines as a woman, including (if they wish) those with gender identities which include 'woman', and those who experience oppression as women)
  5. One Disabled Place member (open to any LGBT+ disabled student)

Additional Delegate Entitlement: 

Each Union has additional delegates based on its student Full Time Equivalent (FTE). Each part time student at an Institution counts as 0.6 of a full time student.

  • Unions with under 10,000 FTE            no additional delegates
  • Unions with 10,000-14,999 FTE          1 additional open place
  • Unions with 15,000 - 19,999 FTE        1 additional open place and 1 additional women’s place
  • Unions with 20,000 - 24,999 FTE        2 additional open places and 1 additional women’s  place
  • Unions with  over 25,000 FTE             2 additional open places and 2 additional women’s places

Please note that no Constituent Member shall have a delegation larger than 8. If this calculation causes the entitlement to exceed 8, places shall be forfeited from the allocation of Open Places.
