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.
