Once you have submitted your nomination Emily will get in contact to arrange an interview with at least one member from the Appointments Group.
Telephone interviews will be taking place between 8th August – 10th August.
This is your chance to ask any questions about what the Appointments Group and its role in the UKOUG, plus what the two year position entails. It is also their chance to discuss your suitability for the role and why you have applied for it. At this point candidates are able to confirm if they would still like to proceed with their application and the Appointments Group will decide if they believe you should progress. Candidates will then be informed if they have successfully made it through to the voting stage or not. Once voting has closed and all votes have been verified candidates will be informed of the results followed by the UKOUG membership.
Submissions close at 5pm. Good luck and thank you for your interest.
