CSS 2021-2022 Election time!


Hey, Everyone!

It's election time! If you don't know who we are, the Computer Science Society is all undergrad students with a CS major, led by a board of elected students. Our aim is to improve your university experience by hosting workshops, social events, and more.

The Computer Science Society is holding elections for executive/head positions for the 2021/2022 school year. Elections for our non-head positions will be held after this election concludes, so you can apply for another position if you don't get elected for one of these :)

We are opening the nomination period starting today and ending Sunday, February 28th at 11:59pm. A campaigning period will commence after that, followed by the vote, which is scheduled for March 3rd-4th. There have been amendments to the responsibilities of roles so make sure to check those out in the constitution. To run for President or Vice President you must have held a previous position in the CSS board at least once. Our constitution has been revised and is viewable on our GitHub (https://github.com/UWindsorCSS/Documents/blob/master/constitution.md). In order to nominate yourself, fill out this nomination form before the 28th. Good luck to all candidates!

As an incentive, there are additional prizes for the first, second and third person drawn. The first three people drawn can choose one of the three bundles:

Basket 1

The final date to enter the raffle will be on February 22nd, 11:59 PM. The first person drawn is able to choose a charity from a list; however, if they wish to choose another one, we just have to get it approved.
