Political and Campaigning
No University experience would be complete without joining NUCA. We offer lively and vibrant political debate with the chance to meet fellow conservatives at even livelier social events! As Baroness Thatcher said: “It's always better where the Tories are”. Even though we have been hit hard by Covid-19 when trying to organise events, we will be attempting to jam-pack the year. We will certainly be living up to our reputation as the best political society on campus. THE PARTY AND CAMPAIGNING: We hold an impressive record when it comes to campaigning locally and securing Party support on campus, especially in the lead up to the 2019 General Election, where we fought hard for the massive majority the party achieved. We campaign locally for Broxtowe and Rushcliffe. Members can get involved in campaigning by messaging either the President - Tom Mobbs or our Campaigns Officer - Tom Hall. SPEAKERS: In the past years our members have been invited to dinners with The Rt. Hon. William Hague FRSL MP, The Rt. Hon. Eric Pickles MP and The Rt. Hon. Theresa May MP. NUCA also has a good relationship with The Rt. Hon. Ken Clarke QC and Nicky Morgan . Look forward to opportunities next year to hear some of the best speakers in the Conservative Party! EVENTS: The part you have been waiting for… 'Port and Policy' – Our legendary event, in which political discussion is helpfully accompanied by a few glasses of fortified wine. Enjoy the debate amongst fellow conservatives and even other party members, before heading out into Nottingham for an after-party at some of the finest drinking establishments in the city. The Vice Presidents dinner is also a highlight of the year, where we invite a high profile Conservative MP. Disclaimer: All events at this current time are cancelled until the 'Rule of 6' and other Covid-19 restrictions are loosened. If this sounds appealing to you and you want to become a member of the most active political party on campus, we would be delighted to have you on board. Membership of NUCA costs just £5 and can be purchased via the SU website. If you have any questions at all, please do get in touch with our President, Tom Mobbs, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact any of our committee members who would be more than happy to answer any questions.

Your NUCA Committee
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
