Interested in Standing for Election..?
9th December 2009 6:09 pm
Believe it or not, it will soon be the time of the year when you will be able to vote for those students who’ll be running your Students’ Union for the 2010/11 academic year.
Before you can vote, there needs to be some candidates! We want to hear from anyone who may be interested in running as a candidate in the election. The Students' Union will be holding a series of meetings across the campuses this week where you can find out more about standing and what the positions available involve – details are below:
12.30-1.30pm on Monday 7 December
Room AA113, Adelphi Building
12.30-1.30pm on Tuesday 8 December
Room A127, Allerton Building
12.30-1.30pm on Friday 11 December
Boardroom 2, University House
As you will probably know by now the roles are: President, Vice-President (for one of the four faculties - Health and Social Care, Science, Engineering and Environment, Arts, Media and Social Science and Business, Law and the Built Environment), Student Trustee and NUS delegate.
Any student can stand for a position in the Students’ Union elections, it doesn’t matter if you don’t know much about Students’ Unions or think that you haven’t been involved enough in the Students’ Union at Salford before.
Even if you are just mildly curious about standing for a position, why not come along, attending won’t commit you to anything!
Running for election for a Students’ Union position can open up a whole host of exciting opportunities for you. If you’re elected you’ll have the chance to get involved in a range of important projects and make decisions to enhance students’ lives. You’ll be provided with all the training and support you need and along the way you will also develop skills and experience that will help you stand out from the crowd when it comes to finding a job.
