DSA Council election 2020 – candidates’ statements
Nominations have now been submitted for positions on the DSA Council. The Council elections will be held during the AGM, which is on 19th June from 11:15-12:30 (BST) during the online DSA2020 conference. Statements from nominated candidates are available here.
Sarah White, Dan Brockington, Kathryn Hochstetler, Uma Kothari, Sam Hickey and Julian Quan will have come to the end of their three-year term of office as elected members of Council at the 2020 AGM. Sarah White is not running for re-election to Council and two members of Council are standing down at the AGM.
The DSA Constitution provides for the election of sufficient members to fill all of the vacancies for elected members open at the time of each year’s AGM, with each successful candidate having tenure for three years. There are therefore five vacancies for elected members of Council and two vacancies for Officers of Council (President & Treasurer).The DSA Council will recommend to the AGM that an existing member of Council is considered for election to the President and Treasurer positions as an understanding of how the DSA works is essential for these positions.
