What have I done this term?
- Freshers’ Week, where I ensured that information on club trials went into every Fresher's welcome pack.
- Held an AU AGM which elected an Executive of 9 members
- Chaired 3 AU Exec meetings
- Club Officer, Welfare Officer and First Aid training
- Allocated grants
- Attended BUCS meetings
- Arranged GoodGym partnership
- Ran Mission: Nutrition and This Girl Can campaigns
- Recruited for two roles
- Attended the first working group on tackling initiations
- Elected as the BUCS student regional chair for the North East, meaning I report back to the national Advisory group on the North East updates.
- Overseen the first term of BUCS fixtures, and seen Newcastle rise one place up to 9th in the BUCS table.
- Attended Sexual Assualt Disclosure training conducted by the Truth Project and Survivor's Trust.
What has been your biggest achievement?
My biggest achievement has been coordinating a relationship between the SU and GoodGym, a charity who combine exercise with doing good deeds. Our first 'mash-up' reached a record turnout for Newcastle GoodGym at 52 attendees. This is now a monthly occurence and is hugely popular with the attendees, as well as being a massive aid to our own volunteering projects.
What could you have improved on?
I think I could have provided some more options for engagement in my Mission: Nutrition Campaign and also made some more headway on my manifesto points, but as term 1 has been so busy, this will be a priority for me next term.
What do you plan to do next term?
- Plan AU Ball
- Plan and conduct ‘Give it a Go Sport Campaign
- Look into BUCS ‘Does You Good’ Campaign
- Collate Nutrition Campaign feedback into a report
- Attend BUCS Nationals as a volunteer/spectator
- Reevaluate manifesto points and start to action
