The OMSA Executive has worked hard this year to make its elections more accessible to students. If you are interested in being nominated as a candidate, all you need to do is submit your name and a 250-word platform using the form below. If you wish, you may also email your photograph to chair@omsa.ca. Candidate platforms will be posted on the OMSA website prior to elections, and all of you are encouraged to contact your local VP Externals to obtain their feedback on the electoral candidates before election day.

Want to learn more about a position, or simply want to run an idea by an OMSA executive member?  Feel free to connect with them and ask! The contact information for the current OMSA council and full details for the elections and the positions can be found here.

Any questions and candidate photographs can be directed to Ali Damji at chair@omsa.ca.

Additional Information: You may run for a maximum of 2 positions, unless you are running for Chair or Co-Chair, in which case you may run for both those positions and a director role. Nominees will be asked to prepare a short speech in person or through a submission of a video or written statement which would be read by the elections officer. Speeches will be up to 90 seconds in length, except for the Chair and Co-chair speech will be up to 120 seconds. This will be followed by 2 minutes of questions (candidates not present may teleconference in to answer questions).
