Autumn image of pumpkins

October 2019 - Autumn has arrived which means one thing - we survived Freshers! And now we're thinking about Elections. We know lots of you have held your course rep and non-exec elections with great success and are already planning for your officer elections in the New Year. So for those of you who like to be ahead of the game, we've included details of support resources and free-to-use tools to boost voter participation in the article below.

Last month saw MSL visiting clients in Australia including our newest addition to the MSL community, QUT Guild. We've written a short piece about this trip, mostly to share images of some of the great campuses we visited - you can read that here. Our next road trip will be to Scotland in the new year for the very first of our MSL Roadshows. If you are interested in taking part as a case study, have a success story to share with the MSL community or would be happy to act as a host for the day please contact us.

Best wishes,

The MSL Team
