Are you interested in being more involved in the activities the Union delivers? Standing Committees oversee key areas of delivery within the Union such as; our sports clubs, societies, media and RAG. As such they have elected members from the relevant activity, and work to enhance the experience of members involved. Elections were held for these committees in the summer, however a number of posts remain available.
Sports Federation Committee
What would Brunel be without Sports? Brunel has a long and proud tradition of sporting excellence and the input of the Sports Federation Committee is key to our sporting success. The Sports Federation Committee is responsible for working actively to help develop current clubs and promote the participation of sports within the student community at large. You’ll also help to plan and run the Sports Federation Awards Ball and make sure that sports clubs are well informed about all that goes on at the Union. The committee meets at least once a month, so you’ll need to show dedication, passion and commitment to sport at Brunel. If you think you’ve got what it takes then get nominating now.
