What is a motion?
A motion is a proposed policy. It states what we believe about an issue, and the action we will take. Any students’ union that is affiliated to NUS can submit a motion or amendment to National Conference.
Motions are discussed and debated at National Conference and then voted on.
If more than half of delegates at National Conference vote for a motion or amendment it will become policy.
How are Motions ordered?
Conference decides the order of Motions through the Priority Ballot. Find out more about this here
