What is the Student Members' Meeting?

The Student Members' Meeting(SMM) is a large forum where students come to debate and determine the direction of Birmingham City University Students’ Union. As your Students’ Union is directed and led by you; our student members, we use the SMM to adopt a collective stance on an issue and decide what action we will take.

All members of BCUSU are welcome to attend and if you feel passionately about something, you can submit an idea for change; all you need to do is get 460 students to sign to say they support it. Alternatively, you can send the idea to be discussed at our Student Advisory Panel.

The SMM is where students get to find out about and pass the following areas of work:

  • Ratification of minutes of the previous meeting
  • Ratification of the Report of the Trustees including progress against the Strategic Plan
  • Receiving the accounts of the Union for the previous financial year
  • Approving the list of affiliations of the Union and the appointment of the auditor
  • Open questions to the sabbatical trustees by the Student Members
  • Any petition submitted by 2% of the student membership

In unusual circumstances BCUSU may hold other Student Members’ Meetings in addition to the annual Student Members’ Meeting. Such meetings shall be called and held in accordance with our Bye-Laws.
