Requests to attend Student Council meetings must be submitted at least two week's prior to the meeting date.

For more information on attending a Student Council Meeting please contact the DUSA General Secretary: Below are the Agenda’s and Minutes of previous Student Council meetings.

DUSA Annual General Meeting

The DUSA Annual General Meeting is held in May each year and provides DUSA members the opportunity to consider any special proposals and to look at the reporting of the organisation for the previous year. The Annual Report is presented to the meeting, which gives members and stakeholders a snapshot of the organisation. The Annual Report can be found in the Agenda below.

Attending the Annual General Meeting is a fantastic opportunity for our members to provide feedback, ask questions and have a voice in the direction of DUSA. All student members of DUSA receive a notice inviting them to attend the Annual General Meeting.
