Once the individuals have been elected there will be a handover period where you are able to shadow the off coming member of your committee and where they are able to pass over important information to you. This normally lasts about 2 weeks. During this time the AU will put on the first lot of Committee Training workshops of the year, this will involve budgeting, club development, recruitment, sponsorship and leadership sessions. After the Easter break your new committee will have fully taken over the running of your club, you won’t be on your own however, the AU Staff and AU Exec are always there to help and there are committee training sessions throughout the year. It is also expected that your predecessor helps you with any issues you encounter during the Summer-Term, to complete their handover.
