Annual General Meeting
5pm Fri 18 Feb
OC1.09 + Discord + Teams
What is an AGM?
Every year societies elect their exec during term 2 at their AGM. These positions will be held from the start of term 3 to the end of term 2 the following year. The AGM is also a chance for the exec to meet with their membership to discuss the running of the society, so you should still attend if you have an interest in the society even if you don't want to run for exec. We'd love to hear from you regarding what we're doing well, and what we could be doing better.
These are the roles available to run for. You can run for multiple roles, but if you win in more than one you will have to choose which position to hold. While you can nominate yourself on the day, we welcome nominations ahead of time. You will also have the opportunity to give a short speech on the day. Please contact Thomas, our returning officer, via firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to nominate yourself for this role. If you are unable to make the meeting but would like to run for a role, please get in touch with Thomas and provide a short manifesto to be read at the meeting.

How it will be run
The meeting will principally be held in-person in OC1.09, starting shortly after 5pm. The meeting will also be available on Teams, where people can join form online if they wish, and co-streamed to Discord. The Teams event can be accessed by visiting https://go.uwcs.uk/agm2022. To use the chat, please join the team using the join code xlnaghz.
Voting will follow the STV process and will take place on our voting portal, which can be accessed by heading to https://vote.uwcs.co.uk/. You can sign in with either your UWCS account, or your Warwick ITS account (assuming you are a member). Test votes are now available, where you can check you can vote if you are expecting to, and then the actual votes will be added once the AGM finishes.
The voting period will last 5 days, and the results will be announced shortly after voting closes. #hustings will be available on our Discord server throughout this period for you to ask the candidates any questions you may have.
