Election Nomination Guide

Before considering any executive position for CSESoc, it is highly recommended that you read the constitution beforehand: https://github.com/csesoc/csesoc-constitution/blob/master/README.md

The constitution clearly outlines the roles, responsibilities and expectations of executives. Should you be elected, a thorough understanding of this document will be required so best to read it now!

In order to run for a position in the CSESoc Elections, you will need to either nominate yourself for a position or be nominated by someone else.

Once nominations are open, you will be able to submit your nomination by emailing copresidents@csesoc.org.au with:
- Your full name and zID, or the full name and zID of the person you are nominating
- The position you or the person you are nominating is going for
- A link to a website, page, or document where people can find out more about you (optional)
- CC either the person you are nominating, or a person who will second your nomination of yourself (if you are nominating yourself, the person who is seconding you has to reply to your email seconding your nomination. If you're nominating someone else, that person has to reply to the email confirming their nomination). Be sure to use a zID email!

If you're planning on running for multiple positions, then make sure you include your preference for positions.

Please remember that to run for an executive position, you have to be a full member of CSESoc when you nominate yourself. This means that you should be doing a degree affiliated with the School of CSE (and if you're transferring, you have already accepted your transfer at the time of nomination).

If you would like to create a website, you can find some helpful templates here: https://html5up.net/. Another simple option is Google sites: https://sites.google.com/
