Although policy and major society issues are decided at general meetings, the day-to-day affairs of CSLD are governed by an executive committee. The committee meets weekly to organise upcoming events and campaigns, and also has a termly meeting with members of Cambridge Liberal Democrats to communicate to them the views of Cambridge students.
