Nominations for President and Vice-Presidential positions are now open for 2019

On August 12 the United Nations Society Cabinet voted to hold our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 10 September 2018 at 6:00pm. The purpose of conducting the AGM relatively early is to ensure a lengthy handover period.

At the AGM, constitutional amendments will be voted upon, the President and VP Finance will give their reports, and elections will be held for the all Vice-Presidential positions, and the position of President.

Nominations are now open for all available positions. Official notice will be sent on 1 September, alongside a list of candidates and their candidate statements.
