FFANZ - Please pass along...

Prospective candidates will have until February 10th 2013 to file the documents required to have one's name placed in nomination and added to the ballot.

The ballots will be published and distributed in late February, and voting
will run from February 28th - March 12.

Candidates should file the following documents:
  • A brief letter stating one's intent to run for FFANZ 2013.
  • A nominator and a seconder, preferably a nominator from New Zealand and a seconder from Australia.
  • A 100 word or less platform statement specifying the candidate's reasons for running and qualifications for becoming the 2013 FFANZ delegate.
The duties of the winning candidate will be as follows:Travel to Australia and attend Conflux 9, the 52nd Australian Natcon, in Canberra from 25-28 April.
  • Visit and get to know as many Australian Science Fiction fans as time will permit.

  • Raise funds and maintain an account to be used by the next NZ delegate(s) in 2015.
  • Promote connections between Australian and New Zealand fandom by a trip report or other means.
