Annual Debate

According to the Council By-laws, there will be a Council Meeting serving as the Annual Debate of that Council Session. “Annual Debate” would simply be a Council Meeting with specified issue/motion. Same as the other Council Meetings, all participants need to follow the Standing Orders in the Annual Debate. Indeed, what makes the Annual Debate so different is that speaking rights would be granted to all Full Members of the Union. It is a good chance to let all Full Members of the Union involve in the Council Meeting and know more about the Union Council.
