Humanist Students’ Elections

The Humanist Students Board is made up of 3 student volunteers who set the strategic direction of the section. The roles they fulfil are as follows:

  • President
  • President-Elect
  • President

Each member of the board serves three years terms. One year in each of the roles above. This means that every year our student members vote in a new President-Elect who spends a year shadowing the current President until taking over as President at the beginning of the next academic year in September..  

Any student member can run in elections to the board and every single student member has one vote. Applications open for the President-Elect in July. The election takes place in August.
