11 March: Form Submission Deadline
18 and 19 March: Presentation Days
Before you go ahead with your society's activities we’ll want to meet with you and find out a little more about you, why you want to form a society and what your plans for the society are. This is also your chance to find out about us and exactly what we can do to support you. The meeting will be with Lauren Huxley, the Activities Officer, along with an LUU member of staff who specialises in your area, and your Activity Rep. Ideally, we'd like all members of the proposed committee to be able to attend but we do know that timetabling might not allow for this.
19 March onwards: Formation Events
Once you’ve told us what you’re going to do, we’ll give you the opportunity to show us. You should stage an exciting event that demonstrates the kind of activities that you’ll be undertaking throughout your first year as a society and beyond. You should engage with as many and as diverse a range of students as possible. You can hold this event at any time, you will need to invite your activity rep who can be found on the representation part of the website. If for any reason neither your rep nor Lauren can attend your event, you can simply take photos and write a report of the event, and send it to email@example.com
19 March onwards: Activities Executive Vote
The final decision for all society formations lies with the Activities Executive which is made up of 13 elected students (representing each of the activity categories that we have) and is chaired by the Activities Officer. They meet fortnightly during term time and will discuss your formation and take the final vote at the next possible opportunity after your formation event. You may well be invited to this meeting to answer any questions that they might have.
Once you are successful we will invite you into the union for a full committee induction (including showing you how to get the most out of us for your members and giving you advice on how best to make it through your first year) and set up your union webpage and bank account.
If you have any questions or comments please contact the Student Activities team on Activities@leeds.ac.uk or Clubs & Societies Coordinator Shona Henley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
