How does the nomination and voting process work?

Nominations are collated by the board after applications close. Please note that the information in your application (except contact information) will be published on our website and distributed to our members prior to the AGM to allow members to make an informed vote.

At the AGM in January, the results from the previous 12 months are presented and the members will elect a new board. Only registered members of hyp are permitted to vote in the election of the board.

Election of Executive Directors: Each executive position (President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary) will be elected individually. If there is more than one nomination for an executive position there will be a vote amongst members. If there is only one nomination that person is automatically elected. If there are no nominations for a position, non-executive nominees will be called upon to run for that position. All executive positions must be filled.

Election of Non-Executive Directors: There are 8 positions available. If there are more than 8 nominees, a vote will take place and the 8 candidates with the highest number of votes will be elected. If there are less than 8 nominees all are elected.
