Declaration of Vacancies

After the wins of a number of the candidates, there will be vacancies in a number of positions around the Council table and in AMS administration. At the moment I’m just writing to take my mind off of things before the Gravol kicks in and I can go back to bed.

President – No Vacancies Created. Bijan is already on BoG, and even though he took office ten hours ago, he doesn’t need to give up his seat – he is able so serve concurrently until his term ends.

VP Academic – Safewalk Coordinator. Ben is also the Commerce Senator, but he can continue to serve in that capacity until his term ends. Prima facie, the most logical person to fill his shoes would be the assistant coordinator.

VP External – Chair of the AMS Arts Caucus, AMS Arts Representative. Jeremy will give up both of these positions when he takes office. AUS Council will appoint a replacement for the seat for remainder of his term. Guillaume Houle, the Arts President, will appoint a Caucus Chair at his leisure.

VP Administration – CUS AMS Representative. Ekaterina will be leaving her current position on Council when she ascends on February 12th. I have no idea what the replacement procedure is.

VP Finance – Vice Chair of SAC. Elin will be leaving his position when he moves down the hall into the nicest office the AMS has to offer. There are two options for filling this. Ekat could hire the person who will be serving as her Vice Chair for the entire year, meaning that they would serve a slightly extended term, or an interim could be appointed. The latter is easier, but I think that the former should be shot for if at all possible.

Oh, and apparently the Engagement Levy went down in flames. Poor little thing – so much promise. Never had a chance.

    The CUS has already held their elections; the new AMS rep is Dylan Callow.

    That’s remarkably efficient.

    Well, that’s what happens when people roll up their sleeves and push through some constitutional/electoral reform. But this election wasn’t somehow special. CUS elections are now held in January to allow for a staggered transitions. Elected positions, appointed exec positions, and other appointed positions turn over at different times and in that order.
