Regional Committees

The role of the Regional Committees

Each of the MU’s six Regions has its own Regional Committee (RC).

Rule III.3 states that candidates for election to the RC’s must have been members of the MU for at least one year prior to the date that nominations close. Each RC has 20 members who sit for a two-year term of office.

The RC is responsible for MU activities within the Region, it considers motions submitted to the EC under Rule VI.1.b and motions submitted directly to the RC under Rule VI.2.b.

While an RC has the authority to administer the affairs of the Region, it does not have a national remit and should it wish to amend national policy it must submit a motion on the issue to the EC under Rule VI, or submit a motion to the MU Biennial Conference.
