So you proposed a new officer structure- keeping the President and creating five Vice Presidents to convene NUS' zones- one for FE, one for HE, a VP Welfare, and new VPs for Union Development (focussed on issues like Student Activities and Union Governance) and a VP Society and Citizenship (focussed on issues like Climate Change, Students in the Community and student campaigning)

It is unclear which VP if any is concerned with promoting liberation campaigns,minority student interests etc, although this could ideally be a major role for the VP responsible for social policy.

Does this model not implicitly restrict the responsibilities for oversight of the NUS Organisation (which actually implements decisions) to the President?

Is it sufficient for a political organisation, to have one officer focusing on developing campaigning strategies?

An implication of this vision of the VP Society and Citizenship is it doesn't utilise the campaigning background of rest of the elected NEC officers.

In respect of VP Union Development, it would be interesting to see how this role would enable a better support structure for officers putting on events and activities.
