ESA By-Elections

It’s that time of year again folks! Whether you want to participate in the selection process of your faculty’s representatives or maybe be one of them – this is your time of year. We are kicking off our Fall 2017 By-elections now to fill the following vacant positions found within the 2017/18 executive:

A) President
The President acts as a liaison between the ESA and the SFUO, as well as between all federated bodies and organizations external to the university of Ottawa. The president also oversees the implementation of the ESA’s goals and projects.
NOTE: In order to run for this position, you must have been an executive of the ESA at some point. The same is not required for VP positions.

B) Vice-President of Communications
The VP of Communications is responsible for all ESA publications, including but not limited to bi-weekly emails, posters, social media and the yearly 101 mail outs.

Important Information To Remember:
1. In order to run for any of the above positions, you must fill out a form (that you can pick up promptly from our office FSS 2040) and receive signatures from ten students within the faculty of economics. This essentially is your nomination. You have until the 22nd to hand in your application.
2. Once you have been nominated, you will be given a period in which you can campaign and present yourself to the members at large. This is understood to be the campaigning period. Also during this period you will be required to participate in a debate and present the platform you have created for yourself. Be prepared to
discuss and show what you can do.

Dates
Nomination Period: September 18-22nd
Campaign Period: September 24th – October 1st
