Election nominations!

I just sent an email with this information to all members. If you didn't get the email, please let me know ASAP because that means you also won't get the link to vote later on.

It's time to hold our first elections. Per our newly ratified constitution, we will have 2 positions, Chair and Co-Chair. The descriptions of those positions from the constitution are listed below. The term of these positions is through the end of the winter 2012 semester; in winter 2012 we will hold the next round of elections for the following year.

To nominate yourself for a position, please email with your name, whether you are running for Chair or Co-Chair, and 2-3 sentences on what you hope to accomplish in the position. If you'd like to nominate someone else, please send their name and which position, and cc them on the email so they can accept or deny the nomination. Please send the nominations by Friday, March 25, 2011 Monday, March 28, 2011.

Our faculty advisor, Sarah Park, will oversee the nomination and election process. Once all the nominations are received, I will create (and she will verify the fairness of) a survey monkey so we can vote online. Each of you will receive an email with your own individual link to vote anonymously, and the link will only work once.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. We're almost to the point of being an official group!
