In addition to talks and exhibitions, the National Student Space Conference (NSSC) hosts the UKSEDS Annual General Meeting (AGM). UKSEDS is the national student space society, and its team of student and graduate volunteers organises the NSSC every year.
UKSEDS’ 2021 AGM will be held online on Sunday 7th March at 15:30. The officers will present their reports for the year, and members of UKSEDS will be able to stand for positions on the Executive Committee. It is an opportunity for members to review the Committee’s progress and ask any questions regarding the directions the organisation will take in the future. This year, our impartial returning officer for the exec election will be Sophia Lee Roberts; if you have any questions regarding running for the election, you can contact her at [email protected].
Note: The agenda may be altered up to two weeks before the AGM.

The Executive Committee
The Executive Committee leads UKSEDS, creating and implementing our strategy and activities. They manage the staff, control the budget, and are legally responsible for the good-running of the charity as its charitable trustees. The Executive Committee are accountable to the other Trustees and to the Membership.
Executive Committee roles require a significant time commitment and should not be taken on lightly, but offer the opportunity to gain valuable management, communication, and teamwork skills. Experience of similar roles in university societies is recommended but not required, provided applicants are enthusiastic and willing to learn.
