YI East Midlands Regional By-Election

We are having a by-election for the role of the Young Independence East Midlands Regional Chairmen.

The nominations open today and will close next week at midday on Tuesday 24th February. The voting will start in the afternoon on Wednesday 25th and run until 5pm on Friday 27th with results announced at UKIP Conference on the Friday evening. The returning officer will be YI Chairman Jack Duffin.

To stand you must have been a member of UKIP for at least a year, live in the relevant region and be aged 30 or under. To nominate yourself, email jack@ukip.org with a proposer, seconder and three assentors as well as one side of A4 as a manifesto. All 5 must be YI members with the proposer, seconder and an assenter living in the region. Only members within the respective region will be able to vote.

The role of a Regional Chairperson is to attend the monthly National Council meetings, hold a bi-monthly meeting with the County Chairperson in your region, inviting the Regional Organiser and UKIP Regional Chairperson. Attend the Regional UKIP meetings as a non-voting member. Make sure there is an action day taking part in some part of the region every week, these can be organised by the County Chairman or Branch Representatives but means YI have an opportunity to campaign. Make sure there is at least one regional YI event each month as well as host the monthly training day within their region.
