ASX General Elections

We want to acknowledge that the health and safety of our members is our highest priority. This is why with heavy hearts we had to cancel our last Star Talk of the year. 

Due to the current situation, we are replacing our Annual General Meeting and executive elections for the 2020-2021 academic year with an online election.

If you are an undergraduate ASX member at the University of Toronto (i.e., you are a U of T undergrad on our mailing list), then you are eligible to vote and to run for an executive position.

To run, email space.society@utoronto.ca before April 17th 2020 at 11:59PM. You can state up to three executive positions that you intend on running for in order of preference, and please prepare a short statement of no more than 250 words for each position. If you wish to run for more than one position, please tailor your statement to each of the positions you intend on running for.

Available Executive Positions:
** President
** Vice President
** Finance Director
* Secretary
Outreach Director
Symposium Directors (x2)
Events Directors (x2)
Graphics Designers (x2)
Web Designer
*Note that if a candidate wishes to run for President, Vice President, Finance Director or Secretary, then they require a nomination from two other ASX members.
**Note that a candidate may only run for the President, Vice President or Finance Director positions if they have previously held an ASX executive position for at least 6 months.

To see descriptions of available positions, please see section 4 of the ASX Constitution. The procedure for voting laid out in the constitution will be suspended due to extraordinary circumstances; further information will be provided shortly. You can find our constitution through the following link: http://asx.sa.utoronto.ca/files/2013/10/ASX_constitution_mar2018.pdf
