Nomination process

Nomination forms must be submitted by August 27, 2023. Nominations will also be accepted from the Convention floor, but there are benefits to submitting your nomination form before convention.

Candidates who submit their nomination form on or before August 27, including the $100  nomination deposit, are entitled to the following:  

  • A candidate statement in the print edition of Direct Impact Magazine, which will be mailed to all members one week before convention. Your candidate statement must be emailed to and must not exceed 500 words. Your candidate statement must be received by August 27. Late submissions will not be printed or published – no exceptions.
  • Candidates may also participate in Zoom town halls with members. The town halls will take place September 26 and 27, and the committee will contact nominated candidates with information on how to participate.

The $100 nomination deposit is payable to AUPE and refunded if you accept your nomination at convention. 

All candidates, including those who submit their nomination form and deposit after August 27, are entitled to send one email message to all convention delegates. Candidates may also have access to delegate contact lists if time permits.

AUPE members who do not submit a nomination form may still run for a position at Convention. All candidates must be nominated from the Convention floor, including those who declare their candidacy in advance.
