VOLUNTARY STUDENT MEMBERSHIP (VSM) CAMPAIGN

A debate is being organized here with local politicians to discuss VSM.
It was suggested a massive pillow fight with students, poster/sticker campaign in student flats.
A suggestion that OUSA has a wall of hand prints then signatures for another visual campaign.
Logan is going to email the Design/Communications team about getting quotes etc and will report back.

The Executive have agreed to support this loan and for the FSO to contact OCom and begin the formal process.
STUDENT HEALTH COALITION
Logan would like to pursue an idea of connecting students with student health through facebook. Perhaps even a link to OUSA’s facebook.
