Holding the officers to account
Hi, my name is Amina and I'm your Union Chair - it's my job to help make sure that the team of Officers at the Students' Union fulfil their promises and do everything they can for you to get the most out of your time at Surrey.
Throughout the year, I chair Exec, which is the Union's main policy-making group. I also coordinate accountability panels, where Officers talk about their plans and what they've achieved.
If you'd like to get in touch, email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is the Union Chair?
This officer is responsible for chairing the Union Exec, ensuring that policies passed by the Executive Team are delivered and making an impact, and ensuring that the Union's byelaws are adhered to at all times. This officer is a unique student representative as they are the only part-time officer that is a member of the Board of Trustee. The Union Chair will work very closely with the President each year to help with the strategic direction of the Union.
It is important for you to remember that as member of the Students' Union all of the Union officers whether part-time or full-time, are here to represent you. You can question them on the work that they do, and go to the relevant zone to discuss any issues you have, that fall within their remit. Visit the zone pages to find out information on how to contact your elected officers.
