Box office memberships
Let people buy society memberships at SUSU reception as well as online if they don’t like paying by card.
Exportable member lists
(If GDPR compliant) Make society memberships exportable, so you can put members in an external mailing list.
New member notifications
Options for new member notifications, the automatic “you have joined this society” email to be modifiable by the society and an optional “a new member has joined” notification.
Try to make getting membership easier for people who want to continue societies when they graduate
Add a volunteering section to the website. Include:
A link to the strive e-badges volunteer recognition blog
An explanation of how to access the volunteering bank
Descriptions and links to all the volunteering societies within SUSU
Links to volunteering opportunities within UoS and community (big job)
Try to get more people engaged in societies.
Find advertising space from Uni for society events. EG: put list of society activities in the halls welcome packs.
Try to get some obvious poster/noticeboard space in Hartley
Get You Are More Than (exams…) to do more things with societies
Empower societies to run taster sessions.
More society storage
Put shelves/lockers in cage, so more stuff can be stored in the same space
Freshers’ events calendar
Create schedule of society activities in first couple of weeks (and continuously if it’s feasible) for freshers to try stuff out and help them join societies.
Not meddle too much in society affairs. Oppose measures which restrict society freedom.
Volunteering & Fundraising
Evaluate and advertise the Strive volunteer recognition scheme
I submitted a You Make Change about giving volunteers discounts at the cafe and bridge and current sabbs are trying to make it happen. I’ll make sure it continues.
Be friends with and advertise RAG and other volunteer societies.
Arrange more events like the Excellence Volunteering Awards for volunteers to get to know each other and be rewarded.
I want to
listen to people’s ideas - either through FB, email or You Make Change... If you have things you want to happen with societies, contact me!
Sabbatical roles have changed this year and environmental issues are now under the president’s role. I love the environment, so will make sure they remember.
Oppose any funding cuts to SUSU from the University.
Help entrepreneurs. Connect them to groups like Future Worlds, Fish on Toast, Social Impact Lab, SUSU Enterprise Fund...
SUSU Clubs and Societies Officer
Experience attending/chairing meetings about societies & democracy as well and communicating between societies and SUSU. I know what’s feasible and am fairly sure I can accomplish all this.
Electronic engineering student, so know how websites work.
I’m on the committee for 6 different societies and a member of 19 more.
I spend about twice as long volunteering as I do in lectures.
Made SUSU changes through You Make Change. EG: bike fixing equipment in SUSU.
