- Handover timescales
You should start thinking about holding your AGM and electing at least a new Project leader and Treasurer in March time so you have time to recruit possible leaders before the Easter Break.
New committees will be required to attend compulsory SU Training which takes place in April, so it is always useful to have your new committee by then.
Here is a link to a document that has some useful tips to help recruit new leaders if you are struggling for volunteers.
- Support your new committee
Your new committee will probably want some key information to get started, make sure you give them the essentials; to help them out….
o Committee form – Ask them to sign this and bring to their Volunteer Coordinator (Matt or Shea – We’d be really excited to meet them too)
Sign them up to the SU website Admin –
o Ask your new committee members to join the website in the same way you did.
o You will be able to click on Members and see them all listed.
o Go back into the control panel and click ‘Groups’
o Click on the relevant position
o Highlight each member and click ‘Add members’
o This will then give the new committee admin rights.
