The Role of a National Conference Delegate
The National Conference Delegates (NCDs) attend, represent Anglia Ruskin Students’ Union and vote at the annual National Union of Students (NUS) National Conference, the main policy-making body of the NUS. It produces policy and/or position statements on the activities of NUS, of which the Students’ Union is a member, and elects the full-time officers and other representatives to the National Executive Council (NEC). The NEC meets quarterly and is the most senior policy-making body outside of National Conference.
The National Conference has a gender-balance requirement and at least half of the delegation must self-define as women.
The delegation will be led by the President of Anglia Ruskin Students' Union. There are 5 positions available:
3 x National Conference Delegate (Open Place)
2 x National Conference Delegate (Women's Place)
