Oxford Union introduced on Monday a new yearly elected position in order to bring long-term planning to the society.
The Guest Liaison Officer will take care of speaker arrangements, oversee the old members’ programme, coordinate office handovers and esnure debate hospitality.
The ratification will take place next week in the Chamber.
Corey Dixon, the president of the Union said, “The Guest Liaison Officer will serve for one year allowing for long term planning. The role will help us in securing even better speakers for the Oxford Union. The role will allow us to continue to build on past successes.”
A member of the Union commented, “This is a good idea, as long as the person elected will actually want to be there to improve the Union rather than hack – they will be there for one year, so it will be harder to keep them accountable.”
