The voting period will end on September 23, 2020, by midnight.  There will be only one ballot.  Candidate receiving the most votes will be elected.  In case there is a tie for the first place, the candidates who tied will be the co-Presidents.

The result of the election of the next president of the Association will be announced at the PKUAA-NE annual meeting this fall.

We encourage talented, enthusiastic, energetic and experienced alumni to run for the president of PKUAA-NE.  This is a great opportunity to serve our association and fellow alumni.  We also welcome all the PKUAA-NE members to participate in this democratic process, by running for the president or nominating fellow alumni to run, and to vote for the best candidate for the next president of our association.
