RUNNING IN THE ELECTIONS
The President is the leader of the Student Executive and is a full-time, paid, sabbatical position. They are the lead representative of QMU members within both the University and the Union itself. The President attends various meetings and committees whilst spearheading our cross-campus activities. Moreover, the President is the QMU's spokesperson and figurehead, making them the most recognisable of the QMU's representatives. This role comes with a lot of opportunities to influence change and build skills for future employment, however, the President is accountable to the student body and must always strive to provide our members with a voice across campus whilst ensuring the QMU is the best it can be.
Vice President Membership, clubs and societies
The VPMCS is responsible for dealing with the many clubs and societies that the QMU host whilst also providing services for both current members and life members. This voluntary position is the second most senior at the QMU and provides a crucial link between the Union and the members who make us the iconic, bold and alternative organisation that so many of us have come to love.
Vice President Board
The VP Board oversees our democratic processes and supports the elected representatives to achieve their manifesto goals and have the best experience possible. The VP Board is crucial to ensuring that the views of the Student Reps are reflected in the work carried out by the Student Executive. Lastly, the VP Board gets to organise the reps' socials.
Conveners of each of the QMU's student committees are responsible for the successful running of their respective committees. These are some of the most impactful positions available within the QMU as the Committees organise most of our services, events and campaigns. Many students first experience of becoming involved with the QMU is attending one of the committees so Conveners have to be friendly and approachable whilst also having the ability to chair meetings and ensure that volunteers are performing the tasks given to them.
These are the most junior positions available in these elections and provide a fantastic opportunity for students to become involved in our Representation system. All of the Union's policies are set by the Board of Management and student reps play a vital role within the Board as they are the voice of the membership within our decision making process. These are great roles for those who want to take their first steps within representation, increase their involvement with the QMU, become an active part of our community and influence change at the Union, the University and beyond.
