Managing your Committee Roles

Being a committee member for a year is a great opportunity, it is a fun and enjoyable experience!


However, if at any point you think you are struggling with the the commitment of being a committee member we have some tips that could help with this –

  • Talk to the rest of the committee about how you are feeling, have a face to face meeting together. Try and think about better ways to manage the work load between the committee – the role descriptions can help with this.

  • You are welcome to delegate tasks out of the role descriptions to other members of the society however, the responsibility to see these tasks complected correctly and in line with the society training is the responsibility of the core committee (President, VP Finance and VP Social). It could be a solution to create some unofficial roles within the society and see if you have any volunteer members to help out?

  • Talk to the Society Team, we are here to help you!

  • Check out the Society Welfare Module, here you can find some great tips on how to manage workloads and your Wellbeing.

Stepping down from your role as a Committee Member

We know that sometimes it might be the case that a committee member may need to step down/resign before the March Elections, so lets have a look at some of the steps you should take in order to do this  –

  1. Talk to the rest of the committee, explain your reasons for stepping down from the role.

  2. Email the bsusocieties@brighton.ac.uk or pop in and see us – Explain that you wish to step down/hand in your resignation for the committee role.

  3. Handover any contact information and password to email/social media accounts to the remaining committee.

New Committee Members

How to elect a new committee members outside of the yearly elections

  • Hold an informal election within your society to vote in a new Committee Member, you can find the all the committee role descriptions here .

  • Email BSUSocieties@brighton.ac.uk to ask if a online election can be set up on the society webpage.

Once you have a new elected member of the committee let us know by emailing bsusocieties@brighton.ac.uk.

We need to know their ROLE , NAME, STUDENT NUMBER and PHONE NUMBER.


Please note- We only need the details of the Core Committee – President , VP Finance and VP Social and they are the only society members eligible to be added into the website.

We will add the new Committee Member into the website so they can access your Society Webpage. The new Committee Members will then be invited to complete the training.
