Members of the Student Groups Executive Committee attend a meeting once month, where they go through all of the bids submitted by Student Groups (societies, liberation groups, and student media) for funding. It's their job to debate and discuss whether the bid is sufficient enough to grant the money requested by the society. The diverse range of student representatives are able to provide perspective and knowledge which stems from leading their society/liberation group from within its category (faith, international/culture, academic, general interest, liberation group).
They also occasionally review Emergency Bids which can be submitted by a society outside of the monthly deadline. This only occurs if their bid was previously declined and they are provided with the opportunity to submit an Emergency Bid.
Members of SGEC will also sit on Union Council. Union Council meet three times per year, and is made up of students from various backgrounds, experiences and areas of study as well as all members of the Student Groups Executive Committee.
Union Council is our key student committee, with responsibility for determining MDXSU policy and deciding action on student ideas for change. Your President and Vice Presidents also report on their work and actions at Union Council meetings, giving students an opportunity to ask questions and find out more about their campaigns.
