Have your say
Each year the Students’ Association holds an Annual General Meeting (AGM) to enable students to set the priorities for their elected representatives for the year ahead. Our AGM takes place on My Voice. This gives students the flexibility to vote on what matters to them in their own time, rather than attent a meeting. Students can get involved in putting forward their own proposals for the changes they’d like to see (motions) and vote for what matters to them.
This year we had two submissions in the AGM:
Campaign for the end of Open Classrooms
Scrap the AGM
The AGM ran from Monday 19th November to Friday 7th December.
All students were able to vote on all motions and have the option of voting For the motion, Against the motion or choosing to Abstain (neither vote For nor Against). For a motion to be successful, at least 200 students must take part in the voting and more votes must be cast For than Against.
We had a fantastic turnout this year, but unfortunately we didn't reach our target of 200 votes.
The campaign to end open classrooms received a total of 127 votes, (110 For, 9 Against and 8 Abstained).
Scrap the AGM received a total of 78 votes, (55 For, 9 Against and 14 Abstained).
