Senedd

 

Senedd (formally Union Council) is the highest decision making body at AberSU. Senedd is designed to represent all students, and sets what AberSU believes in and works on. Senedd is led by an elected student chairperson. All students can submit ideas to Senedd, and can be invited to speak about their idea. If an idea is passed through Senedd it becomes Union Policy for three years, and is assigned to a relevant Full Time Officer to make sure the policy is kept to.

The Union Chairperson leads all debates during Union Senedd, including making sure Senedd meetings are kept to the required time limits, and making sure any debates stay on topic.

Members of Senedd include:

  • 5 Full Time Officers
  • 11 Volunteer Officers
  • 6 Faculty Representatives
  • 2 UMCA Executive Members
  • 5 Representatives of Sports Clubs
  • 5 Representatives of Societies

For ideas to be passed through Senedd all meetings must reach a Quoracy of 50% +1 of all voting members.

Union Senedd represents the voice of Aberystwyth students by setting policy of the union and making, repealing and admending bye-laws of AberSU jointly with the AberSU Board of Trustees.

If you’d like more information on Senedd, E-mail our student Voice Coordinator Steph.

 


What is an idea?

An idea is simply a way for you in writing to put forward what you think AberSU should believe or be working on. Once submitted you may well be asked to present it at the next Senedd meeting and if passed (unless otherwise stated by Trustee Board) it will become policy and the Union has to follow it for the next three years.

How do I submit an Idea?

You can submit an idea using our online form or view current policy using the buttons below.
