Process & Timeline
Here's how board elections work:
- The election process kicks off with a nomination period that runs from November 16-20 (closes at midnight PT on Friday, the 20th). Any alumni can nominate a candidate from the alumni community. You can also self-nominate.
- After nominations close, nominees will have an opportunity to talk to a current board member to learn more about what it means to be on the board and to ask any questions they might have before running for a seat.
- Those who decide to run will then submit a brief profile and two-minute video by December 4, 2015. Here’s an example of a candidate video from the first Web of Change election.
- Elections open and alumni will cast their votes between December 7 and 11. Each alumni will get seven (7) votes, one for each open seat. Specific voting results are not made public beyond announcing our winners.
Your new board members will be announced on December 14, 2015.
