The Big Meeting (Annual General Meeting) is an event we run every year to make sure that all students have a say about their activities, political standpoints and more!
Every registered student is automatically a member of the Students’ Union and can attend, speak and vote at the meeting. The meeting can only go ahead with 100 members present.
In the case of a physical meeting we will be signing everyone in using your AberCard as validation – so please bring yours along as proof you are a student!
In the event of an online meeting free tickets will be available via our website.
We are committed to ensuring equal access to all our students. If you have any queries relating to accessibility, or require any of the meeting documents in a specific format please let us know, email Alice firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students submit ‘Ideas’ in advance of the meeting. An Idea is what we call a submission from any student that asks AberSU to:
- Start a new activity
- Stop or change a current activity
- Adopt or change a stance
- Update or change current Policy
…and much more! An Idea could be anything, as long as it effects Aberystwyth Students.
During the meeting you can choose to speak in Welsh or English!
In the case of a physical meeting simultaneous translation from Welsh to English will be available during the meeting via a conference call service so please bring along your phone.
This service will use an 03 number which costs no more than a national rate call to an 01 or 02 number and counts towards any inclusive minutes.
More information about meetings like these can be found in our Shape Aber section of the website.
From there you can find out more about which students represent you at council meetings, share Ideas to be debated, read our current policies and more.
Don’t forget our doors are always open and we’re only a message away – so please don’t be scared to get in touch if you have any questions or need support!
