Nominations must be on a nomination form and accompanied with a personal statement detailing why you feel you would be able to fulfil this role (approximately 500 words).
The President-in-Waiting will then be elected by those members on Council with voting rights. In the event of two candidates achieving equal votes, the final recommendation will be made by the current President, President-Elect, President-in-Waiting, Honorary Secretary and Honorary Treasurer.
