To: All MoveUP Members in EC #1418
Term ending April 30, 2026
Nominations are now open for all executive councillor positions as part of the MoveUP 2023 Triennial Executive Councillor election.
Executive councillors, as per Article 7 of the MoveUP constitution, are elected by the membership to represent them on the MoveUP Executive Council. Each council position has a constituency of members which was determined in advance by MoveUP’s Electoral Committee and approved during the February 2023 council.
Completed nomination forms must be received by the Returning Officer no later than 4:30 p.m. PT on Thursday, March 30, 2023. If there are more nomination submissions received than the allotted number of executive councillors in that area, an election will be called with voting to be held by electronic ballot.
Please refer to the February 3 bulletin entitled Electronic Balloting 101 – What you Need to Know for details on how to ensure you are ready to vote.
Balloting details for any contested nominations will be posted on March 31.
If you are interested in submitting a nomination form for an executive councillor position, you must include at least the minimum number of nominators required for the council area you are seeking. Nominators must be members in good standing working in the executive council area in which you wish to stand. Please take the time to read the instructions which are part of the nomination form.
The deadline to submit your completed nomination form is Thursday, March 30, 2023 at 4:30 p.m. PT.
The nomination form can be found here.
