We will therefore be working with our clubs and societies over the coming months to identify other routes for those individuals who wish to continue working with our clubs and societies to do so. However, these new forms of participation will not provide any membership rights as these are reserved for full members only, i.e. students at the University of Leeds.
We already have some schemes in place such as our approved coach/instructor registration scheme that may suit some participants and are hoping to be able to offer a registered participant scheme, should clubs and societies wish to offer this, administered through our Activities and Opportunities Officer, supported by the Activities Executive.
Please note that current memberships for 2021/22 will all lapse on 31 August 2022 and that at present there are currently only 113 public members in over 350 LUU clubs and societies compared to over 35,300 full (Leeds student) members and just over 600 alumni/students from other institutions.
We will be providing some FAQs regarding these changes and will update you further as the consultations with clubs and society committees take place.
