A little bit about SOC
The Societies Council (SOC) encompasses all Guild-affiliated student-run clubs and societies on campus.
There are more than 160 SOC-affiliated clubs covering a huge range of interests, each as diverse as the next. SOC provides funding, administrative and leadership support to these groups, helping them run exciting events for students and develop treasury and leadership skills. SOC also hosts major events like Club Carnival, and manages club tenancies including rooms, lockers and mailboxes.
2021 SOC Awards
Been to an event you loved this year? Seen the work of a president who has impressed you? Make sure to nominate your favourite club for the SOC awards! Applications close on the 20th of September for the Most Inclusive Event award, and 27th September for the rest.
To apply, fill out the relevant forms below and email them to [email protected] before the closing date.
SOC Meetings are held monthly during semester. Most meetings include voting on affiliation of new clubs, updates on relevant policies and activities, and other administration tasks. Often meetings will have a training component that may be useful to the way your club runs such as social media training, or handover training. Light snacks are provided before each meeting to allow club representatives to socialise and network with other people.
Meeting attendance is compulsory with financial penalties for non-attendance – if someone from your club cannot attend, you need to send your apologies to [email protected] by 5PM the day before the SOC Meeting, to avoid financial penalties.
