MSL update: change of senior management, new clients and web briefings...

Group of student officers standing in a line with new MSL logo

March 2019 - We know a few of you are still in the midst of nominations, campaigning and voting but the frenzy of activity that comes at this time of year is gradually reducing. Just in time for all those big ticket events to roll round! We hear snippets of great stories about fantastic engagement from nominees, innovative campaigning from candidates and best ever voter turnouts; we'd love to share some of these stories.  So, please send us your highlights - we don't need much detail, just one election highlight and one top tip for success. And if you have images you're happy to share, even better.

We also want to take this opportunity to let you know that, after nearly five years with Membership Solutions Ltd, Colin Watson will be leaving the business at the end of July 2019 to pursue new interests. Read more in the article below.

As Chief Executive of MSL, Colin has overseen the development of the MSL System and the growth of the business, working closely with many of you from the earliest stages of your relationship with MSL. Colin leaves MSL in a very strong position for future growth both in the UK and overseas and the team thanks him for his support and leadership. Plans to recruit a successor are well advanced and so we look forward to introducing the new CEO to you all in due course.

Graphic representing students working and accessing online info

20th November 2019 - Instant access to everything, at any time, no matter what it is – that’s the mantra by which your student members live; from travel information to fast food, gig tickets to current affairs. Your website is a hub of information and opportunities to participate that many students rely upon to support their university and social lives - and so they expect that same feeling of immediacy from your site as they get from ASOS and Amazon.
