The Executive

The NaSTA Executive consists of seven elected members. They have considerable experience in student media and represent Student television to the industry, sponsors and the NUS, offering their expertise on a variety of subjects such as Student union-relations, management, technical support and marketing advice.

The NaSTA executive has existed since the 2009/10 academic year since then the roles have evolved and transformed to become more focused on networking and support to the rest of NaSTA, each specialising in their own field.

Each member of the of the exec is elected by popular vote of all the affiliated stations at the NaSTA conference. Each vote is over seen by the returning officer and the results are announced at the NaSTA awards ceremony.
