Elections update

So far only 2 people are signed up. If you are interested in running please fill in this form! You have until this Wednesday! (I think our plan is to post the results of this form after the form has closed).



Additional info you may need includes preparing a speech (just a few minutes should be fine) about how you have been involved in ACM and how being elected would help benefit ACM. The general format for elections is we call up the candidates for a specific position, they give their speech, the audience will ask questions and candidates will answer. After that, the candidates step outside while the audience discusses any additional comments (good or bad) then vote. Generally elections are one of our LONGER meetings, ideally I would like to spend 2 hours MAX after Stump the Profs (30 minutes for each position).

Reading the by-laws is definitely a good thing to do. Keep in mind you need to be a National ACM Member in order to be an officer (if you aren't you can still run, but if elected you MUST sign up). Also, only current ACM@UIC Chapter Members will be eligible to vote. There will be a check-in the day of elections and if you want to vote still we will be taking membership dues the day of as well.

And just to address it, since some people seem to distrust my methods, I will not be mediating elections, Walter has volunteered to be mediator since he will not be running this year. I just got the initial form and email out the door. That being said, Walter also has access to the responses and is monitoring them.

Lastly, a follow-up meeting regarding committees is likely to happen, but not this Thursday.
