Nominations
Once the nominations open, I will circulate a link that will allow you to nominate yourself for a position. Please only nominate yourself if you are a full member (not visiting or associate) and are enroling next year to continue your studies.

Hustings – 18th March 18:00
ALL candidates will appear before the society members and will give a short speech to convince everyone that they are most suited for the role they are running for (let me know ASAP if you want to run but will be unable to be at the hustings). A Q and A session will also take place. Attendance is mandatory for candidates and we will be filming the hustings and uploading the footage onto the Facebook group (to allow members who did not attend to see your speeches).
