How do I become a UJS delegate?
In order to be a voting member at conference you will have to run as a UJS delegate representing your J-Soc.
Every J-Soc in the country will be allocated two delegates to represent their J-Soc at Conference.
These two delegates will be students who are current members of their J-Soc committee on 16th December 2012.
In addition to this, each J-Soc will be allocated extra delegate positions based on the size of that J-Soc constituency.
Large J-Socs will receive 3 extra delegates
Medium-sized J-Socs will receive 2 extra delegates
Small J-Socs will receive 1 extra delegate.
Each J-Socs UJS staff member will be happy to answer questions on how many extra delegates your J-Soc has been allocated.
In order to secure a delegate position if you are not on a J-Soc committee, you will have to be elected as a UJS delegate at the J-Soc elections. The same proceedings used to run as a J-Soc committee member will be replicated in running as a UJS delegate.
If you have any queries about running as a UJS delegate or about the conference please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
