The Reconvened 2017 Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the University of Sunderland Students' Union was held on:
Wednesday 13 December | 1.30pm
David Goldman Informatics Centre, Lecture Room 2
An AGM is a meeting which any member of the Students' Union (if you're a University of Sunderland student then you're a member!) can attend, at which the company's accounts and affiliations will be ratified by the members.
We want your views and we’ve set out a timescale below for the changes we want to make.
We will do our best to keep to these timescales.
