Process for Seeking Election to a Provincial Officer Position
The MGEU will produce a publication introducing candidates to members. Candidates wishing to be included in this publication must submit, to the MGEU, a photograph and an article articulating their platform by July 31st. The publication will be mailed to convention delegates and Local Presidents in early September. The information will also be available here on the MGEU Convention website.
The purpose of the mail-out/webpage is threefold:
1) To give you an opportunity to introduce yourself to MGEU members;
2) To offer some information about what you want to accomplish if elected; and
3) To provide members with information about how to contact you if they have questions or issues they want to discuss with you prior to Convention.
You are asked to provide written submissions outlining campaign goals and pertinent biographical details, and also to provide a picture of yourself, on or before July 31st, 2018. This deadline is non-negotiable (materials must be sent to print shortly thereafter and we have to allow time to mail the material to delegates).
The following are the specs for the Candidate mail-out:

Picture Specs:Electronic file

Size - minimum 2” wide x 3” long (larger images will be downsized and cropped to 2 x 3)
