The General Assembly is the primary decision making body of the UCSRN. The General Assembly consists of ca. 54 delegates (9 members x 6 delegates each, exceptions not noted). It is chaired by the Executive Board Chair. The agenda and documents of the GA are sent around at least 14 days in advance. Some documents may also be uploaded to this website. Only delegates may vote at a General Assembly, but all students may attend one.
The Independent Body of the UCSRN ideally has at least 3 members. It is strived for that every member-UC contributes at least one member to the Independent Body, this entails optimal structure in diplomacy. The Independent Body monitors the voting at the General Assemblies, monitor the upholding of the Statutes and the Policy Manual by the Executive Board, performs an audit of the finances and acts as an appeal court to settle disputes of and within the UCSRN. Any student of a member-UC that is interested can apply by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Advisory Body consists of both former Board members as well as others that can provide helpful advice to the current Executive Board based on their experiences with the UCSRN. The Advisory Body may not vote at a General Assembly, but may give advice at any moment.
