Societies Forum


What is Societies Forum?


Societies Forum is a discussion space for the committee members and student members of SU-affiliated clubs and societies. Forum meets monthly on each campus and all committee members and members of affiliated clubs and societies are invited to attend. 

Societies Forum is chaired by an elected student chair, who is elected at the first Forum of the academic year. Any committee member or member of an SU-affiliated club or society can nominate themselves to be the Forum Chair. 

The SU expects a representative from each club and society to attend the Forum and if a representative is unable to attend, the group must send their apologies before the Forum takes place.

For up to date information about the Forum, members can use this website, email us or join the relevant Facebook group for your campus: 

Committee Members Group - Cambridge

Committee Members Group - Chelmsford.

Forum details are also shared on our Events Calendar and via our newsletter.

More details about the purpose of Forum can also be found in Bye Law 5, which outlines the rules for the governance of SU-affiliated student groups at ARU Students' Union.
