The positions up for election are:

- Vice-President (2 year term, followed by 2 years as President = 4 years total)
- Membership Chair (2 year term)
- Communications Chair (2 year term)

We will be putting out the call for nominations in a few weeks, so start thinking if you would be interested in putting your name forward.  Elections will happen in early October, with the deadline being the next General MeetingIf you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the current UMAE exec.
