Executives came back for the third round of meetings with your VPs from 28 February to 3 March. They’ve been discussing the past few months and feeding into exciting plans for the future.

If you’re not sure what they are, effectively, Executives are like a cabinet for each of the Vice President Sabbatical Officer positions. They are elected students who can hold the Vice Presidents to account, support the campaigns within that agenda and provide feedback.
