This is your ‘need to know’ section - everything that you need to know in the lead up to this year's Elections. Standing for a position is hugely rewarding and a great experience; it will build your confidence, bring out skills you never knew you had and you’ll gain tons of knowledge about running for a position.
But we know it can be scary and there’s a lot you might not know. So, we’ve put together everything we can think that will help.
We also encourage all of our candidates to sign up to our elections candidate emailing list to get updated with events, workshops and useful info. Don't feel any pressure - this doesn't mean you're running for a position. It's simply a way for us to ensure you're up to date with all the support that's available to you.
