De Montfort prepares for Annual General Meeting in light of recent construction of new SU offices

By Muhsin Cabdi

Students of De Montfort University are awaiting tonight’s (TUE DEC 6) general meeting in the hopes of learning what the student union has been up to in the past year.

The Annual General Meeting, hosted by De Montfort Student Union, is held so that the university’s trustee board can make sure the Student Union has acted within the standard of ethics set for them.

Keira Rounsley, DM SU’s Vice President of Welfare and Community, called it the university’s “biggest democratic meeting all year.”

She said that the meeting serves “to hold the organisation to account” and that “all students are welcome.”

The General Meeting also serves to enable the Trustee Board to approve future plans and discuss Ten Big Questions that can be raised at the meeting.

The meeting, which is held as an evaluation of the past year, takes into account the actions of the Student Union of the past year, paying special attention to any money that was spent on projects.

Keira also said one such topic that may arise at the AGM could be the construction of the new Student Union building.

She went on to say that a primary topic would most likely be “finance with regards to the new building.”

The General Meeting enables students to provide feedback to the De Montfort Student Union.

The General Meeting commences at 4.45pm and continues to 6.30pm in room 4.05 of the Vijay Patel building.
