It’s been a long and crazy year, UBCAni’s first year back fully in person after the pandemic, and hopefully we’ve made a good impression on what it takes to be an exec and how this club runs. It’s finally time for the great handover- UBC Anime Club’s new executive elections will be happening this Friday, along with the Annual General Meeting where we hear your concerns and feedback on the club as a whole and how it is run. Per tradition, in a bid to bring more members to the elections to vote, we will be offering FREE PIZZA to any *UBCAni members who show up to elections in person to vote! We really, really, really need people to vote, because with our record-breaking 400+ members this year and AMS requiring clubs to have at least 40% of their memberbase vote in elections in order to maintain our status as a club, that means we require at minimum close to 200 votes in order to continue existing as a club

Voting will done online via the AMS Campusbase website at this link here, which means that only club members who are UBC students and have joined UBC Anime Club’s Campusbase group are eligible to officially vote, so be sure to join the group before voting. The form will not be open until after elections, but you may use the link above to access it once it does, and you have until noon (12:00PM) Monday, March 28th to vote. The elections will be hosted in person at our usual weekly time and place, starting from 7:00PM onwards in the usual room, Buchanan A201 at UBC. However, in order to encourage voting as much as possible even from people who cannot attend in person, the presentations will be streamed in our Discord server in the elections channels.
