Election Update: National Officials Nominations

The Interim Steering Committee of Im4theArts has received 6 nominations for the seven positions as National Officials (the executive) on the NSC, coming from 5 provinces, 4 men and 2 women. The date for nominations closed on 2 September 2020. We do not have sufficient numbers yet to call an election.

We are aware that some members have expressed their desire to nominate or be nominated, but were not able to participate in the nomination process in time. For this reason, and to ensure the fullest participation of our members, we will extend the period of nominations for two weeks.

Nominations Deadline

  • Please nominate persons for the National Steering Committee before 17h00 on 16 September 2020.
  • Voting will take place from 17-23 September 2020.

Please Note:

  • National Officials of Im4theArts need to be Full members in good standing (members for at least 14 days and meeting all the requirements of Full Membership) and they should be eager to volunteer their time and energy to support this movement to formalise and bring positive change for the arts sector.
