Elections Day & Annual General Meeting - March 11, 2010

Hi everyone,

We'll be having our annual general meeting & elections on March 11, 2010, from 7:00-7:30 pm. I encourage you to come out and vote.

If you are interested in running for any of these positions, please email us or talk to us in advance.

Positions available:
Social Coordinator
Sustainability Coordinator
Equity Officer

General rules for the elections:
1. All candidates MUST be a UBC student next Winter semester (2010-2011 from September to April) and MUST be a current active UBC Fencing Club member at the time of elections. You also have to be a student for the entire year next year (we don't want you to graduate in December and leave the position in the middle of the year afterward - you need to be a CURRENT UBC student for the WHOLE school year).
2. All candidates and current executives who wish to run for next year must declare ahead of time (preferably before March 11) that they will run. You can either send me an email or tell me in person.
3. You need to give a speech, 2 minutes maximum in length. This will be mandatory. No speech, no vote (why would we vote for someone who can't even prepare a speech?). No profanities or anything that may offend your fellow clubmates. Usually speeches last between 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Present at the election (recommended by not mandatory). If you cannot make it (due to some unforeseeable matter), please let me know and we will read your speech for you. And yes, you will still need to write up the speech.
