1. Thank you to everyone who participated in the elections for Student Representatives on the Common Awards Management Board. I am writing  to announce that votes have been counted for all candidates and the two students who have been elected are: Cath Hewison  (Trinity College Bristol) and Andrew Mattacks (Yorkshire Theological Education Partnership). Congratulations to both!

They will attend their first Management Board meeting on the 1st May to observe proceedings and will then officially take over from Neal and Terry as representatives for the 2018/19 academic year.

Academic reps are being sent information today on how they can get in touch with these representatives on your behalf.
