Elections for committee positions are staggered throughout the year, with executive and senior officer positions elected in Michaelmas Term, and representative or committee positions elected in Hilary and Trinity Terms. Hustings occur at the Sunday meetings, with elections between the Monday-Wednesday of the following week on the Student Union website.

Running for a position is a really great way to get involved in the Hertford community, and a really fulfilling role. You get to advocate for your fellow students at the Student Union and in committee meetings with senior college staff, as well as have a budget to put on fun events.
