Below are the candidates running for the Society Officer. Have a read through each manifesto and see who you want representing you next year!
1. Increase Society Awareness.
My First point is to increase society awareness. Many students are not aware of where they can go to access societies or what societies we offer within the union. So, to ensure that all students are given the opportunity to join any society that they wish to I will focus on ensuring that all societies are visible around the university, and online.
2. Have regular contact with all societies.
My second point is to have regular contact with all society committees. Being a committee member can at points be very stressful, and sometimes you can feel very alone while running a society. So, I am promising to maintain regular contact with the committee members so that they can let us know how we can support them as much as we possibly can.
3. Encouraging more academic based societies.
My final point is to encourage more academic based societies. When studying many students can feel alone, however if we were offering more academic based societies we can create a sense of community for those students who are struggling and create a place where they can go and gain some support from other year groups. So, I will work with the academic representation officer in which is the best way to support these societies and for students to gain the most out of these societies.
RON (RE OPEN NOMINATIONS)
WHY VOTE FOR RON?
If you are not happy with any of the candidates, you can vote to Re-Open Nominations (RON).
RON appears on the ballot, and votes for RON are counted in the same way as those for candidates. If RON is declared the winner after all votes have been counted, the election for that role will be held again. The original candidates are allowed to run again in the new ballot, but it gives the opportunity for new candidates to run.
Students may choose to vote RON for one of the following reasons:
You do not need to vote for RON in an election; if you think all of the candidates are better than no candidate, you should not rank RON on your ballot.
