Nominations

Each nominee must complete a nomination form, see above, and is required to obtain the support of at least 10 ASA members who have signed up for membership on the ASA website.  Students may sign up in order to nominate a candidate. We recommend that you get all 15 lines on the nomination form filled up just incase 1 of your supporters has not signed up for membership. Please make sure that both you and the students nominating you are ASA members.  If you do not have 10 ASA members nominating you, your nomination is invalid. Students cannot vote for you unless they have signed up as members to the ASA.

Nomination forms must be handed in at ASA reception in the student lounge or emailed to office@asa.ac.nz.

ASA reception is open from 9am-4pm Monday - Thursday.

If nominations are emailed, they must be received by 12pm, midday on 9th August.

You are able to run for more than one position, though we urge you to consider which role you could fulfil best as you cannot hold office for more than 1 position.
