Running your Club

From creating events through our website, running polls, creating sign-ups for interested non-members for the Freshers' period as well as promoting your club events and sessions across NUSU's digital screens or social media, managing and promoting is never easier. 



We have created a guide for both outgoing and incoming committees on the process of handovers. From setting up an online AGM though the NUSU website, so all the necessary documents you need to complete, we hope that you find this page useful. If you have any questions, feel free to contact a member of the Activities Team or Joe/Eleanor.

Run a GIAG event with your Club

Give it a Go is a great way for your club or society to gain new members. We are one of the biggest departments in the Students’ Union, and it is a fantastic way to advertise your club or society to new and existing students. In order to book in your Give it a Go session you will need to complete this form. If you would like to run several different sessions you will have to submit one form for each session – you don’t need to do this if it’s the same activity but over different dates, just pop the various dates on the form.

All Give it a Go activities are run at a basic introductory level and should be suitable for beginners. Please remember that you should run workshops which link to your activities. For example, society led Give it a Go sessions should relate to your society activity. You should run an event in what you are experts in.
