Missed out on NUS Scotland's Disabled Students' Conference? Catch-up on all that happened by reading our round-up below.
Following opening remarks, we welcomed Inclusion Scotland to talk about their Access to Politics work.
Following lunch and an accountability report from Disabled Students’ Committee, it was time to elect the new Disabled Students’ Officer. There was one candidate, Lainey McKinley, and delegates also had the option of re-opening nominations.
Next on the agenda was motions. An amendment to the rules submitted by Disabled Students’ Committee was passed, this brought the campaign’s rules in line with NUS Scotland’s governing rules. Policies that were due to lapse on disabled-friendly student unions, better support and access for carers in further and higher education, and to lobby for the NHS wheelchair service were retained.
Further elections then took place for Disabled Students’ Committee and Steering Committee. First up was Disabled Students’ Committee, for which there was four candidates.
Then it was time to elect Steering Committee.
The results were as follows:
Delegates then had the opportunity to listen to NUS UK Disabled Students’ Officer James Elliott’s report and to ask questions about the Disabled Students’ Campaign’s UK-level work.
It was time for the last break of the conference which was a great opportunity for delegates to have their photo taken with our ‘Our Community Too’ selfie frame.
