Please also be reminded that Connectwork is producing a publicity video of the AGM that will be aired on 28 October 2011. In this video, each candidate will be given 5 seconds to introduce themselves and to gain support from the voting delegates who will be present at the AGM. Although it is not compulsory to submit a video, this provides all candidates with a suitable platform through which they can reach out and connect to their peers. Video submission will be completely confidential, and Connectwork will not reveal details with regards to the identity of the candidates until the video is aired.
Please send all video clips to Lisa at email@example.com and cc Azeem at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternately, you can upload the video to http://www.2shared.com and email the download link to both Lisa and Azeem if the video is too large to send via email. Please note that the deadline for video submission has been extended to 23 October 2011, 11.59am.
The itinerary for the AGM will be released soon.
The campaigning period for candidates will officially begin once the elections period is over, and will end at 28 October 2011, 11.59pm. Any candidate found to be campaigning after the deadline will have his or her nomination voided by the Elections Commission.
