Annual General Meeting: 4th December 2018 at 12.30pm


Dear Members,

We invite you to attend the 2018 Annual General Meeting (AGM) for the Senate House branch of UCU. At this meeting, we’ll take a look back at successes and challenges we faced in 2018 and ask you to nominate the branch committee for 2019.

Our AGM is an essential part of the yearly plan and ensures that our union remains democratic by giving you the opportunity to stand and vote in a new committee, make changes to the constitution and hear the annual report from the Chair and other committee members.

Did you know: all UCU members are entitled to attend the AGM within working hours – in other words, you can attend the meeting and then take your lunch break.

Nominate your branch committee for 2019

Your local committee represents you. Make sure you’re involved in choosing who they are!

At the AGM, we will seek to appoint the 2019 branch committee. In the coming weeks, we will provide information about what roles we’d like to appoint to and how you can put yourself forward to these roles.

To coordinate the nominations process, we would like to appoint a Returning Officer. This person will receive nominations in advance of the meeting and announce appointees at the AGM. If you would like to be the Returning Officer at the 2018 AGM, please email or a branch officer by Wednesday 31st October.

A further reason to attend? Sandwiches, tea, coffee, biscuits (and perhaps some mince pies) will be provided. A special guest speaker will also be announced closer to the date to come and join us to present on an important topic relating to the trade union movement.

If you have any questions about or suggestions for the AGM, please get in touch!

Best wishes,

UCU Senate House branch committee (Tim, Angela, Huw, Kumar, Clare, Theresa, Sarah, Liz)
