Standing Orders


Standing orders are motions passed by BUSAC that remain in effect after the adjournment of the meeting in which they are made. Standing orders are given a place among the legislation of BUSU as they have a role in governing the business of the organization and the running of BUSAC.

Standing Orders of BUSAC automatically terminate at the end of the term of BUSAC that made them or when the duties and/or actions mandated by a standing order have been completed by the appropriate body in full and it remaining as a standing order would serve no purpose.

Recording and maintaining a record of the Standing Orders of BUSAC shall be the responsibility of the Speaker of BUSAC, with the assistance of the Deputy Speaker.

It shall be the joint responsibility of the Executive Committee to ensure that Standing Orders of BUSAC are followed and/or carried out as mandated.
