Annual congress & sector conference

UCU's supreme policy-making body of the union is its annual congress. Congress includes separate annual meetings of UCU's further and higher education sector conferences, where policy particular to these areas is decided.

In addition, special sector conferences are sometimes called between the annual congress meetings in order to pass policy on specific urgent matters.
