This year the RGU:Union's Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held on Monday the 19th at 4.30pm in the Amphitheatre of the Sir Ian Wood Building. It is an important opportunity to ensure that students' voices are heard. The Union will also be providing free pizza for the event.

The motion deadline was earlier today and students had the opportunity to submit their motions to the Union - all of these motions will be put forward at the AGM and students will have the chance to amend, debate and vote on them.

There needs to be 60 students present for the votes to count and every student is automatically a member of the union and, therefore, entitled to vote. However, students need to provide their student ID before they are given a voting card.

The AGM is your opportunity to make changes to improve your time at RGU for the next academic year; any motion passed becomes Union policy to work on them.

Last year's AGM led to several motions being passed and the Union have completed a number of them such as installing microwaves in Aberdeen Business School and supplying healthier eating options. They are still working on gender neutral toilets and hope that they may become a reality on campus over the summer.

Kerry Harrison, President of Education and Welfare, explained: "It's your democratic right as a member of the union and you will be voting on things that affect you."
