The OTHER Election

Canada is having a Federal Election. And the date for that election just happens to be the same night as Asi Wind’s lecture, Monday, October 21

We strongly believe that everyone who is eligible to vote should! Fortunately, there is advance voting so you can cast your ballot before election day. 

The back of your Voter Information Card has information about Advance Voting Days this weekend:

After you’ve voted, take a picture of yourself outside of your polling place and post it to the Facebook group!

So be a badass and vote, then join us for a badass lecture with Asi Wind on October 21. 

If you’re unsure of where to go, you can enter your postal code at the Elections Canada Website and get more information.

Elections: Update

A reminder that tomorrow (Thursday, October 10) is the deadline to submit nominations for executive positions. You can nominate yourself for one of the following:

President
First Vice President
Second Vice President
Secretary
Treasurer

You must be a member of the club in good standing for this (2019-2020) season. If you wish to run for President, you must also be a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians.

To put your name in, just send an email to ibmring17@gmail.com. In the event that we have more than one person running for any position, we will request additional information and you will be able to campaign between October 15 and the election, November 18.

Elections

We’re getting ready to hold elections (read the full backstory here).

The elections will take place at the start of the November meeting (more news on that coming early next week) Monday, November 18 at the Imperial Pub.

Voting

Voting will be open to anyone who was a member of the club during the 2018-19 season and anyone anyone who is currently a member for the 2019-20 season.

We are working on arrangements for proxy voting so that anyone who cannot attend the November meeting for whatever reason will still be counted.

Running

There are five positions open:

  • President
  • 1st Vice President
  • 2nd Vice President
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary

To run, you must be a member of the club this season (2019-20). If you wish to run for President you must be a current member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians.

Anyone wishing to run should send an email to ibmring17@gmail.com saying so, and specify a particular position if you like. (And if you are running for president, include your IBM# in the email.) The deadline to submit your name is October 10, 2019.

Campaigning and Elections

In the event that we have multiple members running for the same position, we will post a list of candidates on October 15, 2019 and will provide a short bio for your consideration. They will also have the opportunity to post flattering things about themselves on the Facebook group or consult with members individually at the October meeting.

Any additional questions, please write us at ibmring17@gmail.com and we will try to address them as soon as possible.
