General Meetings

In these meetings, you’ll receive updates from elected reps and vote on issues that affect students. Any student member (this means you!) can suggest agenda points for discussion, propose a motion or ask open questions of your elected representatives.
Students attending a General Meeting

Student Members' Meetings are an opportunity for all members to come together at least once a year to speak directly to the Presidents and CEO about the Union's activities over the last year, also looking at how the SU generates its income as well as what areas it has spent it on.

Members also have the opportunity to put forward proposals for discussion. This can be done by emailing the Chair of the Meeting at studentvoice@thesu.org.uk

Next meetings

We've recently had a Student Members' Meeting so the next meeting will be early 2023. 

If you would like to propose a motion or engage in the debate, please contact studentvoiceteam@thesu.org.uk.

If you want to witness a meeting in motion (more exciting than you might think!), you can watch a recording of the latest student members meeting, previously known as a UGM. In this meeting the Presidents discussed feedback from 'Speak Week' and 'The Big Rep Meeting' as well as giving updates about other issues. 

Keen to see it for yourself? Watch the video or read the minutes.

What even is a Student Members' Meeting?

The Student Members' Meeting is an annual meeting open to all students. It must be held once a year.

Who is it for?

You! Any University of Exeter or Falmouth University student studying on any campus in Cornwall is encouraged to attend, as well as SU elected representatives. Normally the Student Voice Chair will chair the meeting. 

What does it do?

The meeting shares information and updates between the students and the Union. However, more than this, it also ensures that the whole of SU is remaining accountable to the students.

  • SU Trustees report on the Union's activities
  • An update on SU finance, including how much money SU has received and spent
  • Questions to Presidents 

Any student studying at Falmouth or Penryn campus can:

  • Suggest agenda points
  • Propose a Motion
  • Ask open questions of their elected representatives
