We, the MIMSA Elections Committee, would like to inform you of the start of the campaign period for election of the new President and Vice President of MIMSA.
The election procedure is as follows;
President and Vice president Teams may submit their candidacy from the 2nd of November 2012 and from the 9th of November on may campaign until the 30th of November 2012.
Please note that candidates may apply until the 23rd of November 2012 but, obviously will not have the same amount of campaign time as those applying earlier. Candidates for President and Vice President teams may not be at risk of expulsion during their term.
Board members similarly submit their names for consideration to the election committee, the closing date for application is December 2nd.
The Election Committee, comprised of a mixture of MIMSA Board Members and Student Representatives, will oversee the election process and deem any candidate eligible or illegible as per the MIMSA Constitution.
Elections for President and Vice President will occur on the November 30th 2012 in the MIMSA office from 10 a.m. till 7 p.m.
Students must come to the office and cast their vote.
Each International Medical student may vote once, please note that both card holders and non-card holders can vote.
The election committee will count the votes and publish the results on the MIMSA website as soon as possible after voting has finished.
The winning candidates will then appoint their board. Selection of Board members is a decision solely for the President and Vice President elect, and is based on an interview for the given position on the board. From the point at which the election result is announced, we the current MIMSA Board will be in a transition period and as such will no longer function as your MIMSA Board.
We hope that you all support the candidates for leadership in MIMSA and would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the support you have shown for MIMSA and the MIMSA Board in the past year.
