At the Worcester OGM, as well as the election of Martin Harris as Honorary NPC President, Sam Hardy was elected as Project Officer, and Chris Stuart was elected to the Constitutional Subcommittee.
The deadline for submission of motions to the Cranfield OGM is the 13th February. Motions may be sent by post or e-mail to the General Secretary.
The next meeting of NPC Scotland will be held on the 9th March at the University of Stirling. All postgraduate representatives from Scottish Universities are welcome to attend, and all Scottish affiliates have one vote.
There is one position remaining on the executive for the last of four project officer positions. This position will be elected at the next OGM. Candidates for this position should have a proposed remit for their position ready for hustings.
The next OGM will also hopefully contain the final decision on NPCs policy on postgraduate funding, including support for living costs and tuition fees, hidden course costs, and top-up fees.
In the last term, NPC has submitted responses to the HM Treasury review on the supply of scientists and engineers, UUK/SCOP consultation on the independent review of student complaints, and the HEFCE/QAA/UUK/SCOP review of quality assurance in higher education, approved at the last OGM. A response to the NUS Commission on Democracy has since been written following discussion after the last OGM, pending approval at Cranfield.
