EGM

The SUWC is now holding an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) as the COVID Officer role is open.

Being on the committee, you will get to decide how the club is run and help out with everything from our usual weekly walks and socials to our exciting trips. It is a lot of fun, highly rewarding, and of course helps strengthen your teamwork, leadership, communication and organisational skills - all of which look great on your CV.

We are again using our tried and tested online EGM method!

Covid Officer:

The covid officer ensures that club activities are within covid guidelines as set by the government, the university, and relevant national governing bodies. Information on the restrictions should be readily available for members.
