A Question and Answer session with Liam Burns, President of the National Union of Students (NUS), is taking place this evening on Highfield Campus.
The event will be from 6pm until 8pm in Building 54 (Maths Building), Room 4011. This is ahead of Southampton University’s own referendum on the issue of affiliation to the NUS; the referendum vote will be on Thursday, December 6.
A brief presentation on what the NUS is will be followed by a Question and Answer session with Liam Burns.
The event is being run by ‘The Yes2NUS Team’ and is labelled the ‘Yes 2 NUS Launch Event – Q&A with Liam Burns’ on Facebook.
Most importantly, it is open to both those who will be voting Yes and No, as well as those who are yet to decide.
Liam Burns, President of the National Union of Students in the UK, gained his position in July 2011, and has since been re-elected in April 2012. He beat four other candidates to the position in 2012 and will serve in this position until July 2013.
Ahead of the event, questions can be emailed to ‘email@example.com’. Questions will also be taken from the floor and from twitter while the Q&A is in session. Questions delivered through Twitter should be to ‘@Yes2NUS’, while those who would like to follow the online debate should follow the #Yes2NUS hashtag.
If you’re unable to attend, the Wessex Scene will be live blogging the whole event from 6pm.
