Nottingham University student radio station URN is holding an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) due to resignations by some members of the executive committee close to the end of last term. Publicity Manager Eloise King acrimoniously resigned from her position in November and has not yet been replaced, though Assistant Publicity Manager Ian Chaloner is currently looking after the role. The position has been renamed ‘Brand Manager’ and a new candidate will be properly elected at the EGM.
Station Manager Alex Allan, who has been in the role for just over a year, said he had decided to stand down at the end of last term. He explained that he had enjoyed his time at URN but now felt it was time for him to leave. “It’s been an amazing 12 months but now I feel it’s my time to move on…I wish candidates all the best. Although I am leaving URN I hope to still play an active role in Student Media at Nottingham University.”
Other roles to be elected at the EGM, due to be held on Wednesday 1st February, include a new sales position and Head of Music, previously held by Ed Ackerman.
