Student experience at LBS is driven by our clubs and our clubs are only as good as the leaders behind them.
Club Leadership Model
Clubs generally undertake two rounds of leadership selection - Executive Team assembly in the autumn term and election of President in the summer term.
Executive TeamsClubs live or die by their executive teams, and for individuals on those teams. Joining a club exco is one of the best ways to make a mark on the fabric of LBS life.
Each club has its own operating model with a variety of different roles tailored to that club's needs. Most clubs select their Executive Teams via interview. Executive Team assembly generally occurs during September and October each year.
Club Presidents and Treasurers are elected by the membership of the club during summer term for the upcoming academic year. Club Presidents must be current students during their term of office and as such are typically students on two-year programmes.
Club Election Process
Whilst elections will be conducted by each club and the process may differ from one club to another, the following mandatory rules apply:
- The roles of President or Co-Presidents must be open for election
- Nomination must be open to entire club membership
Contested roles will be put to a vote, in which all club members are eligible to vote
- To prevent spamming, NO mass communication of any form (email, facebook post, etc) addressed to significant number of audience (>10) is allowed. This includes addressing lecture theaters during classes.
- No mass communication of any form (addressed to 10 or more people) is allowed
These rules are the same across the clubs under the SA's purview. Please see the SA Elections page for detailed campaign guidelines.
Calls for nomination will be opened by each club according its own schedule. Please contact your club's Presidents for details on the application process.
Please contact the Sports and Clubs Officer or the Returning Officer with any questions regarding club elections.
