Dear (ISC)2 Sydney Chapter member,
As you may be aware, this is the time of the year for the Board of Directors Election for Sydney Chapter.
I've been privileged by the board to run the Election for this year 2019, and I am pleased to announce that the election nomination phase is now open. 
As per the ISC2 Bylaws, a member in the board holding one of the 4 mandatory roles (see below from #1 to #4), cannot hold the same role for more than 2 consecutive terms (2 years), except for Director role (#5) where there is no restriction with the number of terms. So all members who have served a period of 2 years in the same role (except Directors) are still entitled to the nomination but for a different role.
By receiving this email, you are eligible to nominate yourself, and I urge you all to participate and nominate yourself for one of the roles. 
If you are interested, please respond to this email with a small paragraph to appeal to other members why they should vote for you, along with a passport size photo.  

Nomination process would be closed by Wed 28th of Aug 2019 at 11:59 PM.
An online election ballot box will be opened on Mon 2nd of Sep 2019. More details on how to cast your vote will be shared later. 
Please read the Bylaws to understand your responsibilities if you are nominating yourself for any of the roles.
The nomination is open for following roles:
1.)    President
2.)    Secretary
3.)    Treasurer
4.)    Membership Chair
5.)    Directors (x4)
Below is a template to draft your responses. It’s an opportunity the Chapter is giving you to display and sharpen up your leadership skills.

All the best,

Joseph Mikhail
Founding member & Treasurer
