What is a General Meeting?
Well it is a town-hall style meeting, where any student can come and discuss their views on the different motions up for discussion, you also have an opportunity to ask Officers questions at the beginning of the meeting. Decisions made at a general meeting override those made by Union Council. So make sure you put it in your diary and come along and have your say about what the Union does.

The full agenda is here. There are four important policies up for discussion, you can read their brief descriptions below.

I'm going to be using this blog every couple of weeks to actively collect feedback about the Union and what we are doing.
We want to know positives and negatives about any aspect of what the Union does, so after the first week or so of term (or indeed the last week of September and start of October if you're a postgraduate who doesn't get the luxury of long holidays!) what have we done right and wrong?
Please don't post abuse, we are trying to help make things better here so constructive things only would be appreciated. Also feel free to draw my attention to previous posts, although I will be searching various Union related words to find stuff people have written previously.
Ok, go for it…..
