Who will make up the committee?
Your student group will need to have at least three committee members: a chair, a treasurer, and a secretary. You can have as many committee members as you like, but a maximum of eight committee members can be authorised for your accounts. Committees are elected annually in spring.
As a committee member, what am I responsible for?
As a committee member, you will be responsible for the activities of your group, and thus potentially liable if any injury, damage or accident. You will be responsible for the group’s bank account and ensuring your group is sustainable.
How will we finance our group?
Each group receives £60 as a start-up grant. You have the opportunity to apply for other funding later. The Guild will not give funds for food, drink, events at external venues, t-shirts and campaigning off campus. You’ll raise your funds through membership fees, charging for events, fundraising, or getting sponsorship.
