Make Change


Athletic Union (AU) Committee

AU Committee is the main forum for sports clubs to discuss any concerns, vote on important sport-specific matters and generally have their voice heard.

It is open to the committee members of all clubs, with at least one representative from each group in attendance at every meeting (usually the President). However, if the club is playing an away fixture or has another commitment, then apologies should be emailed to the Chair at least 24 hours in advance.

The committee also feeds into the Union's wider democratic structure, with AU Student Councillors voting on behalf of sports at Student Council. In addition, it helps to facilitate communication, collaboration and understanding between sports.
