Call for Campaign Leads for the NUS Affiliation Referendum

We will soon be holding our annual referendum on our affiliation to NUS UK, which is written into our Standing Orders to occur each year during the elections period. We are looking for a campaign lead for both sides of the debate, as well as members of the campaign teams.

We will soon be holding our annual referendum on our affiliation to NUS UK, which is written into our Standing Orders to occur each year during the elections period. We are looking for a campaign lead for both sides of the debate, as well as members of the campaign teams. This would involve leading the campaign, getting a team together, and getting out and about to campaign during the voting period to encourage students to vote in the referendum.

We believe that it is important to hear both sides of the argument, so we are requesting that anyone with an interest in being on a campaign team for either side of the debate gets in touch via elections@derbyunion.co.uk by 4.00pm on Monday 5th February. You will receive full support from the Union with campaigning and ideas.

Referendum information

As per our Standing Orders we are holding our annual referendum on the University of Derby Union of Student’s affiliation to the NUS UK.

The official question wording is set each year at a Scrutiny Panel by a panel of students with roles within the Union; this will be held on Tuesday 13th of February.

All current student members are eligible to vote via an online secret ballot which will open at 10am on Wednesday 6th March and close at 10.00am on Wednesday 13th March. The results will be announced on 13th March on the Union website.
