STRATEGIC PLAN

Jarred explained the Strategic Plan needs to be updated.  He has been meeting with Debbie Downs to start the process.

It is envisaged that workshop and focus groups will be held to feed into the document.  It was agreed the wider student body should also be engaged in the consultation process.

RE-ORIENTATION CONVERSATION

Some gigs a bit quiet but well received.  It is less than desirable holding gigs on a Monday or Tuesday but OUSA were fitting into the Artists’ schedules so it could be helped.

LOCAL BODY ELECTIONS UPDATE

There were 70 enrolments collected from Cumberland College the other evening.  Could the Executive please sign up on the roster to help out with College visits to get students to sign up?

Bayden offered to develop some general guidelines of what the Colleges would like when we visit them and distribute it to the executive.

There is a letterbox drop organised for the weekend of 30 and 31 July around the student area to drop off enrolment forms.

The Events department have kindly offered to co-ordinate a Market Day to fit in with a student voting day. 

EXECUTIVE ELECTIONS UPDATE

Jarred highlighted the need to hype up the nomination process to encourage students to stand and for them to know all about OUSA before they stand.

He emphasised that if anyone is re-standing for OUSA election should not use OUSA’s local body campaign to increase their personal profile or use it as a platform for their re-election doing so will undermine the Association. 

There was discussion about candidates visiting Colleges when campaign.  Should they be regulated?  Guidelines will be given to the Secretary before nominations open.

There is a team going to take hot water bottles to the sleep out on Friday 30 July.  Please assemble at OUSA at 9pm if willing to help.  Donna, Sean, Alexia, Bayden and Jarred offered thus far.
