The meeting is open to all Arts students who would like to get involved and have their voice heard, and all members will have the opportunity to submit motions, business or questions for the 2015 Committee.

All Arts students (Ordinary or Financial members) have the opportunity to submit motions and business for discussion on any aspect of the Arts Union’s activities or governance. Motions and business must be sent to artsunionpresident@gmail.com with the exact wording (and a proposer/seconder for motions). The deadline for submissions of motions and business is Friday, October 23rd at 5pm. Submissions received after this time will not be accepted.
