We will have the capacity to check and make sure that you have an updated membership so you can vote, nominate, and run for the board if you so wish! Ensure that you bring $20 cash with you to pay for your membership if you think it is expired and needs to be renewed.
I want to run for the board, but I don’t know how…
First you should take a look at the positions here! Step two reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and she will send you more information on what you need to apply. Third is once you have decided a role that best fits you get another FACRA member to nominate you. Fourth, please prepare a 1 minute speech to tell the membership about you and why they should vote for you! Finally,show up to the AGM and do your best!
