Exec Elections

Posted on 30th January 2011, Categories: Newsletter

Greetings CompSoc.

As the AGM is soon, I wanted to inform you about the elections for exec positions in the society and how to apply. I know some of you have already sent in manifestos after I announced this at LAN, don't worry, there's no need to re-send those (Unless you want to of course).

Please send your manifesto to secretary@warwickcompsoc.co.uk. Your manifesto should cover who you are and why you want to be elected to a position in the society. There is no limit on the number of positions you may run for, although please note that you need to be a current member (not associate member) of CompSoc to be elected.

Another e-mail will be sent out containing the date and location of the AGM when it has been arranged. Manifestos of applicants will also be posted on the website.
