Revised Timeline

This revised timeline was proposed by the UNAC Elections Committee and approved by the UNAC Executive Board on 13 January 2021. See below for positions that are part of this election cycle.

Nomination Process

For all open positions, any eligible and active (dues-paying) member may self-nominate or be nominated by an active (dues-paying) member.

Nomination packets must include:

  3. an optional ‘headshot’ that will appear on the ballot (150 pixels max)
  4. if applicable, endorsements from 10 members (see more below)

Nominations must be emailed to the UNAC Election Committee (follow link to list of members with email addresses) with the necessary documents prior to 5:00pm AKT on 15 March 2021.

After nominations close, the UNAC Elections Committee will certify the candidates and then send verified candidates to VoteNet for ballot preparation. Voting will open on March 22, 2021 and close on April 1, 2021.
