Victoria Hatch, VP Activities, has been appointed Interim President of Lancaster University Students’ Union and Chair of the Trustee Board.
The Trustee Board asked Victoria to step into this role to ensure the continued representation of students and democratic governance of the Union.
The Board has expressed its thanks to Victoria for agreeing to fulfil these duties in the interests of students at such short notice. We would also like to extend our thanks to Bee and Lewis for their continued hard work and for picking up additional duties to ensure students are represented.
Victoria Hatch (Interim President) said: “We are facing an extremely challenging time as a Students’ Union, as Interim President and Chair of the Trustee Board I want to do everything I can to act with our student’s best interests at heart. Now is the time to look to the future of our Students’ Union, and do all we can to ensure we are democratic, transparent and providing key services to students. Many of the situations we are dealing with are unprecedented, but more than ever we need to embrace our Lancaster University community to support each other”.
Victoria will be in office until 26 June, when next year’s full-time officer team start their roles.
An announcement will be made shortly concerning arrangements for a by-election for the Presidency, which may be subject to an appeal.
