Who is eligible?

In order to be a candidate for the board, nominees must either be a current member of a SFC chapter or currently serving on the Board per the Bylaws.

How to nominate someone

Let the person you are nominating know that you are doing so. Then, visit the Nominations page to make your nomination official by filling out the nominee's information.

To accept your nomination

Once your sponsor has completed your information, you can accept the nomination by updating your bio and statement. In order for your nomination to be confirmed, you must write at least "Nomination Accepted" in your bio as soon as possible.

On campaigning etc.

Nominees will have until April 5th to finalize their bios and statements on the Nominations page. The statement is a forum to offer information relevant to your candidacy and an opportunity to address questions, thoughts or concerns from the SFC community to board nominees.

Nominees will engage in an asynchronous Debate by asking questions of one another and then answering them.
