Annual Members' Meeting results published

The Students' Union Annual Members Meeting (formerly called the Annual General Meeting, but "Members" is more accurate) took place on Thursday 7 February at 2pm in the Great Hall of the Wills Memorial Building.

The AMM provides an opportunity for any student to submit a motion to improve the student experience or change something here at Bristol. Students who attend debate and vote on these motions and those that pass become official UBU policy. This policy informs the work of the elected officers who have the important role of representing and campaigning on behalf of all students. #
