NUS National Conference is the largest democratic event of the student movement where the leadership of NUS is elected and the policies set. However this Conference often has too few Black students in attendance.

Though the NUS Black Students’ Campaign leadership has a proud history of participation in this Conference, often submitting motions and actively engaging in the democracy, we need your support and we need you to be elected as an official delegate to the Conference. Many elections take place early in the academic year, so it’s vital you stand, campaign and win.

Contact your Students’ Union to find out when your elections are happening and run!
