The venue of future ASMs is usually set three years in advance. Individuals / university departments may approach the SSM President, or vice versa in the absence of acceptable volunteers. Such offers are discussed and agreed by the Committee.
Details of how to run the ASM are provided in a separate digital resource pack; developing and updating this is part of the responsibility of each ASM team and is a condition of being awarded an ASM.
However, a few key items are listed here, to make clear the responsibilities of the SSM and ASM committees, the President/Chair of the respective committees, and the finances.
