    Affiliate Membership voting


      What do you want?

      Affiliate members to be allowed to vote on members running for committee and constitutional changes 

      Why do you want it?

      Affiliate members are still members of our societies (and pay to be so!) and as such should have some say in how the society is run. For some of us they make up a good portion of our societies, and indeed have a much longer turnover time (as opposed to the student turnover of three years), and therefore may be able to provide insight into strategies that work, and strategies that don't.

    4:09pm on 1 Oct 18 This is having a big, negative impact on societies with a lot of affiliate members and smaller societies who rely on old members who stay in Bangor after graduating to keep the society alive. Experienced, reliable affiliate members are having to be denied the smaller roles on committee and now not even a say in who runs the committee because they are no longer students which is ludicrous.

    7:49am on 7 Oct 18 Associate members can provide very useful experience which can be passed onto new student members safely when learning new skills or hobbies. Also many societies involve hobbies that students will continue to do years after their time a university, for any members who continue to live in the local area it seems appropriate for them to have a say in a society to pass on their experience and knowledge while continuing their hobby.

    11:12am on 10 Oct 18 Affiliate members are just as valid members as student members, assuming they still get involved and live locally to be able to do so. If paying for the privilege of still being part of a society, the least I would expect would be able to vote and actually be part of things.
