In order to nominate yourself, please email Sara at firstname.lastname@example.org by 9 am on Wednesday, February 8. You may provide a short statement if you choose. The responsibilities of the position are below.
As elections officers are elected annually at the April GMM, these EOs will serve from February to April, i.e. the general election.
The role of the Chief Electoral Officers is to organize the elections as per the bylaws. Most of the work is around the annual election, but they are also responsible for any by-elections that may be held during the year. The work includes accepting the nominations, arranging for members to scrutineer, arranging and setting up tables for voting, and alongside the executive, communicating the details of the elections to the membership. Members interested in this position should expect to commit a significant chunk of time in late February and in early March. Current members of the executive are ineligible for these positions. Additionally, election officers may not run for executive positions in the election for which they serve. Honorarium: $750 per year per position, plus and additional $150 per by-election.
