IRO Spring Elections

On Wednesday, April 29th at 7:00pm, we will be holding our spring semester elections. We encourage all members to attend and vote to help determine IRO's future direction as a club. Four of the positions on IRO's executive board are up for election. Additionally, we will be voting on adding the position of VIGMUN Secretary-General to the executive board. If the membership votes to include VIGMUN SG into the executive board, we will also elect that position as well.

Feel free to nominate others, or yourself, by sending an email our President (zuhayr@virginia.edu) before April 29th. If you have been nominated for a position, but wish to drop out of the running, please send me an email as soon as possible.

In order to vote or run for office, you must pay dues. If you would like to participate in elections, but have not yet paid dues, you must pay as soon as possible by contacting our treasurer, Shreyas Hariharan (srh4qy@virginia.edu).

If you have any questions regarding elected positions or the elections process, don't hesitate to contact the President or other members of exec.
