Governance

Governance of the Association is overseen by the Deputy Editor-in-Chief, in conjunction with the Board of Editors. 

MINUTES

At ANU Student Media we are committed to transparent and accountable governance and management. We want members to know what has happened and is going to happen at ANU Student Media so they can be informed and ask questions. You can find records of discussions had at the Board meetings and at our general meetings on our Minutes Page.

 

FINANCIALS

The majority of ANU Student Media’s funding originates from the Student Services & Amenities Fee (SSAF). As SSAF is paid by students, this means that ANUSM is funded and operated by students, for students. You can find Woroni‘s funding agreements, operating budgets and more details regarding our SSAF funding on our Financials Page.

 

ETHICAL MEDIA STANDARDS

The objects of the Association state that ANU Student Media will promote best practice in journalism, to this effect the Board has endorsed the adoption of a number of ethical guidelines from media and entertainment industry leaders. These handbooks cover a number of issue areas, applying to different aspects of Woroni‘s multiple platforms and productions. You can find further information about the adoption of the standards and about the guides themselves on our Ethical Media Standards Page.

 

POLICIES

Policies underpin the association and are in accordance to the Constitution. Policies are split into four sub-groups:

  1. Procedures: adopted by members at a general meeting of the Association, these outline the specifics of processes and rules which have been expanded on from our Constitution.
  2. Specific issue-based policies: adopted by the Board. Subject matter mostly pertaining to how the Association interacts with external parties. As appropriate, these are generally formulated through a process of consultation with relevant stakeholders.
  3. Internal policies: adopted by the Board. Largely pertaining to the internal operations and workings of the Association, these may be provided on request at the discretion of the Deputy Editor-in-Chief.
  4. Financial Policies: adopted by the Board. The majority of ANU Student Media’s funding originates from the Student Services & Amenities Fee (SSAF). As SSAF is paid by students, this means that ANUSM is funded and operated by students, for students. Our financial policies are created through a process consultation with other SSAF funded student organisations. You can find our financial policies, along with our reports and submissions, on our Financial page.

If there are any questions regarding policy or internal governance, please email the Deputy Editor-in-Chief at ben@woroni.com.au
