The National Conference
This is the sovereign policy making body of the National Union of Students. It sets policy for the year ahead in each of the 5 zones and elects the President, Vice Presidents and Block of 15 representatives on the National Executive Council. It is also where the NUS budget for the year ahead is decided through the Annual General Meeting (AGM). Delegates can also submit their own policy to National Conference and if passed by the majority will secure support from the NUS.
