The Societies Exec are five dedicated Group Leaders who have been elected to represent you as Society Group Leaders and Society Members - if you have a problem or an idea, they are your first point of call.
Not only do they all have fantastic experience of what it’s like to lead a society in Greenwich, they are also incredibly willing to help and advise wherever possible, and love learning more and more about the Societies Section here at GSU!
The Societies Exec are elected by Society members in line with the end of year Group Leaders Conference. As representatives of the Societies section, they then attend meetings both of the Societies Exec and, the Activities Exec (joint with the Sports Exec), and send representatives to Student Council.
“Without societies at UoG, I would not have the friends or the experiences I have today. This is why I will always encourage everyone to join at least one society during their time at Greenwich!”
