Our meetings start at 5pm on Wednesday afternoons in the Williams room, located on the first floor of the sexy John Mac building. There’s no free tea and cake, but laughs are a plenty and you can share your ideas with like minded people and hopefully get some plans down to film! After our meeting there is a workshop at 6pm-7pm, where pros from the industry come along and tell you how to do things.

Elections

GUST's outside broadcast gallery for SRC election night

Elections are held twice a year, before christmas and before the spring break. Every active member of GUST can stand for the offered positions.

Election forms require two signatures from other GUST Members (Proposed, Seconded). These lists will be brought to meetings prior to the elections and also posted in the office. Elections take place during either a Studio Night or a Production Meeting as announced in due time, and all present members are eligible to vote.

If you think you might be interested in taking up a position, chat to whoever is holding it at the moment (you can find out on our Team Page). They’ll surely be happy to let you watch over their shoulder! However, don’t be intimidated by all these positions — GUST thrives on extraordinary projects and everyone can always pitch ideas, get a team together, and just make things happen.
