Elections for NUS LGBT+ Conference
During LGBTUA+ History Month, the LGBTUA+ community at Warwick will be electing delegates to represent them at NUS LGBT+ Conference.
NUS LGBT+ Students' Conference is the sovereign policy-making body of the LGBT+ Students' Campaign, which is a politically autonomous part of NUS UK. The conference brings together delegates from students' unions across the country (who are affiliated to NUS UK) to discuss, debate and vote on motions and elect the political leadership for the year ahead. It is taking place on 5th-6th March in Holiday Inn Royal Victoria Sheffield, Victoria Station Rd.
