Division committee and college board elections

We recently called for eligible members to nominate for Division Committee and College Board vacancies to contribute their knowledge and time to provide leadership in key areas. 

Nomination process

The nomination period for all positions is now closed.

Voting process

Members who are eligible to vote under regulation 6.24* will be asked to vote online if they have a valid email address.  

For the purposes of voting, an email will be sent to you by the external service provider CorpVote with a unique ID number, which is used for voting. The email will go to your most current registered email address unless otherwise specified. If an email to this address bounces, then the other email addresses are used in succession.  

Candidates' names and headshots will be listed on the voting platform randomly. Once you have logged in with your unique ID number, you will see the names and headshots of each candidate, which you will be able to click to read their candidate statements.  

Depending on how many positions are available, you will be asked to place a number in order of preference to each candidate, for example, if there are five candidates, numbers 1–5 would be used in order or preference.  

All nominees will be notified, via phone or email, of the outcome of the election after the voting period. 

Voting is managed by CorpVote and the Returning Officer, who is an Engineers Australia employee.

Voting opens – 9am on 8 August 2022 AEST
