The NUS is the national body for students and Students’ Unions and each year we pay an affiliation fee to be members of NUS (voted for in our Annual General Meetings). National Conference is NUS’ sovereign decision-making body. It meets once a year for three days. This year’s Conference will take place in Glasgow from 27/03/2018 to 29/03/2018. It is a chance for all SUs to be represented and so, as an NUS Conference delegate, you will be voting on behalf of Worcester students.
The purpose of the conference is to:
Unions across the country are allocated spaces for the conference according to student numbers at their institutions. Worcester Students’ Union has three allocated spaces for 2019. One space is reserved for the current President and the other two taken by University of Worcester students elected by cross-campus ballot. In order to comply with a resolution passed at the 2014 conference, at least one of our three delegates must self-identify as a woman and all those attending must be elected to do so by their fellow students. Attending NUS Conference is quite an experience – a great mix of serious business, inspiring speakers, lively debates and brilliant night-time events too!
This is a great opportunity to get involved with the student movement at a time of significant change and political challenge. Delegates will have all of their expenses paid and will be expected to report back on their experiences.
Please note you do not have to stand for any other elected positions in order to stand as an NUS delegate, but a candidate for a part-time officer or student councillor role may also choose to stand as a conference delegate.

The role offers the chance to develop a range of skills that are highly valued by employers, so it is a great opportunity for someone who wants to use some of their spare time to enhance their employability.
