National Committee

The National Committee has responsibility for what the NCAFC does in between conferences. It comprises:

  • 14 members elected by single-transferable vote at national conference, of which at least 40% must be self-defining women and/or non-binary people.
  • 1 delegate from each regional conference (as defined by regions), whose vote can be shared between multiple representatives
  • 1 delegate from each liberation campaign (LGBT+, Women & Non-Binary, Disabled and BAME), whose vote can be shared between multiple representatives
  • 1 delegate from any other self-organised student section as recognised by the national committee. Currently, these are International Students, Schools & Further Education, and Postgrads & Education Workers.

Meetings of the NC are open to NCAFC members but only elected members of the NC have voting rights. National Conferences are open to all NCAFC members and all have equal voting rights.
