Settling In - 04/07/2016

Hi Everyone,

It's the end of my second week as your VP Campaigns and Communications so I thought I would do a quick post to update you on what we have been up to so far! Mostly it has been a lot of training and workshops but here are a few of the more interesting parts!

Arnside

The officer team went to Arnside (and stayed in a B&B that won 'Four in a bed' which was kinda cool!) to do some training and also finalise our main aims for the year. You can read my main objectives on my main officer page: http://lansu.unioncloud.org/vp-comms.

NUS Student Unions' 2016

The team went to Liverpool for this NUS conference which was held over several days. I stayed for two days and went to all the talks in the communications stream which included workshops on the anisocial side of social media, how to write an includive digital strategy and freedom of speech.

NUS Digital

The switch over to Union Cloud has been a massive project that we are finally getting somewhere with. If you are reading this then you have found this page through the new website which is one part of moving to Union Cloud! We know that the site isn't perfect and it is a project that will never end as we are always looking to improve what we have but if you have any feedback for us so far please do let us know by filling out this form: http://lansu.unioncloud.org/launch.

I'm mostly writing this to see how the officer update pages might look but I hope you found it interesting to read anyway! If you want to get in touch please contact me on twitter via @LUSUComms or email me at lusu.comms@lancaster.ac.uk.
