Society Elections 2019 are now closed. The next society elections will be held from March to May 2020.

Society Elections (also known as AGM / Annual General Meeting) are required to be held by each society every year, to ensure each society carries onto the next academic year. This can be online or in person, however it must be democratic and open for all current society members to be elected.

Therefore each society has the following three options:

  • Run your society election online: contact for more details on how to do this.
  • Run your election through an AGM providing 7 days’ notice to all members, and registering your date online through the link below (please note, if you hold an AGM and this is not done correctly, your election will be invalid)
  • Put your society up for adoption – if you feel you don’t have enough members / will graduate this year with no continuing committee, please contact the activities team. The society will then be put up for adoption post Wednesday 15th May for those who may be interested in taking over the society.

Anyone can participate in an election, but to vote or be elected you must be a registered member of that society. However we encourage as many of you to consider taking on these roles – it’s a fantastic volunteering role, and a great way to gain experience for your CV.


Please see the following guidance on running a Society AGM and handing over to your new committee:
