Welcome

Welcome to the National Elections Center of the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association. At this streamlined portal, you may learn about the responsibilities of various positions on the National Board and Regional Board, access the Elections Manual, and declare your candidacy.

The requirements for candidacy will be the following:

  1. Platform declaring candidacy for your interested position (max. 300 words). The candidate statement should (1) introduce who you are and why you want to run for this volunteer position (2) describe a concrete, bulleted list of initiatives that members can expect to see from you by the first-trimester retreat in January 2018.
  2. Photo (size 2 x 3 and in jpg/jpeg/gif/png form)
  3. 1-minute prepared speech at the National Elections (will be delivered to a room of students from any school, including National Board candidates from any region) or Regional Elections (will be delivered to a room of students from the schools in your region, including Regional Board candidates for just your region).

All members will be able to view candidate statements here; these will be updated after the deadline on September 30th. Please use the menu items above and below to navigate.  Submissions for National Board and Regional Board positions are done through our form on the Nominations tab. Also in your submissions, if you are applying for multiple positions, please list these positions in the ORDER of position that you prefer; we will take your preferences into consideration when deciding the order of positions that will be elected.

If you have any questions and/or concerns, please e-mail elections@apamsa.org.

In order for Elections to run smoothly, we also need all the chapters who will be in attendance to list a designated chapter voter phone number/e-mail and register on Poll-Ev ahead of time.

South Asian and Pacific Islander students are especially encouraged to run for positions. We would like to increase South Asian and Pacific Islander representation at all levels of APAMSA.
