Sub-Committees

Find all of the information you need to run a society sub-committee properly.

What is a sub-committee?

Societies can set up a sub-committee that lead on a specific event, campaign, or project. They're a group of people that the committee can delegate work to in order to ensure that the project runs smoothly.


Getting your sub-committee approved

If you already have a sub-committee or are planning to get one for your group, please let us know via the form below. We will respond within 10 working days.

Electing or recruiting your sub-committee

We know that there are many methods in which our groups want to be able to decide who is on a sub-committee which can be via election or recruitment methods. We are going to release more guidance soon about what steps to take depending on how you want to recruit.


Sub-Committee Registration

Once recruited, members of a sub-committee must register themselves using the form below. We will then reach out to them to welcome them, let them know what training they need to complete and will add them to our committee newsletter mailing list.

Update your constitution

It is important that your members are aware that you are building in sub-committees for your activities. It is therefore mandatory for all groups to update their constitutions. Please do this and re-submit it to the Students' Union. This does not need to be passed by a member vote or AGM.
