The role of the President within the Students' Union encompasses various responsibilities. Primarily, the SU President takes the lead in democratic procedures, acts as the main point of contact for university-related matters, and serves as the primary liaison between the SU and the University. They are the face of the student body throughout the University and ensure the fair representation of all students. 

The President role also oversees both full-time and part-time officer teams and chairs the SU's Executive Committee, which holds significant decision-making authority within the Union. Additionally, they also chair the Trustee Board consisting of 9 Trustees, who possess the ultimate decision-making powers within the SU. 

Meg has previously worked for the Union your 23/24 Sports Officer.

When Meg's not at the SU, you can find her on the dance floor in town or just chilling at home, watching movies or at Cheerleading!
