Summary of the Proposed Changes
In order for Trinity Laban Students’ Union to function more smoothly we are proposing the following transformational changes:
- Reverting back to having one overall President of the Students’ Union. They will be supported by four Vice-Presidents and six Officers, as well as a technical manager and administrator.
- All members of the SU team will be paid; this will be on a scale where the President is salaried, the four executive Vice-Presidents will receive £350 per term and the six non-executive Officers will receive £100 per term. All honorarium payments may be withheld for failure to engage.
- There will be a non-elected part-time permanent administrator role created. This will be a staff member who will help the President to manage the everyday running of the SU.
- The non-elected role of Technical Manager will be paid an honorarium of £350 a term and will be responsible for ensuring that all technical equipment is used and stored appropriately. They will assist with running all technical aspects of events.
- All job roles have been updated accordingly; these can be found in Appendix I of the Constitution.
- There is a clearer complaints system, so it’s easier to hold the SU to account.
- The SU Executive Committee (made up of the President and the Vice Presidents) shall meet at least once a month to ensure the smooth running of the Students’ Union.
- All details about setting up and running Clubs and Societies has been laid out in Appendix II of the Constitution.
