Our biggest meeting of the year is the Annual General Meeting (AGM), otherwise known as the Big Student Meeting (BSM) which will take place on the 18th January 2018 at 4pm in the Jacquilene Wilson Hall on the Penrhyn Road Campus.

An AGM is for all Kingston students to receive reports on and have their say about:

  • Union’s annual report and accounts
  • Find out what we’ve been doing for you in the last year
  • Discuss the things that are important for you and making policy
  • Ask questions of your elected officers.

The Big Student Meeting gives all students the opportunity to implement policy through the submission of a motion.  A motion can be proposed by any student and can cover a wide range of issues.  If a motion is passed at the Meeting then the union are mandated to facilitate it.  Please note that any motions which have financial, legal or reputation risks may be overturned by the Trustee Board.  

The motion deadline has now passed. Emergency Motions may be submitted after this deadline and debated however this is at the discretion of the chair.  These motions are usually when events take place after the deadline date which warrant discussion at the AGM. Any emergency motions need to be submitted to studentsunion@kingston.ac.uk 

If you want to submit an emergency motion to the upcoming Big Student Meeting then please check our motions guide page for more information on how to submit a motion. 

If you wish to make any amendments to motions once they are published, these need to be submitted by 17th January 2018 at 5pm, ahead of the Big Student Meeting. You can find the motion amendment form here
