Just a note that nominations close in exactly 2 weeks!
There are still positions uncontested so if you know somebody interested
in being more involved or would like to be more involved yourself please
nominate soon (and yes, you can nominate yourself and it is encouraged).
If you have been nominated, please note that you must accept your
nomination before the 17th of Dec in order to run. If you intend on
standing for council the sooner the better :-)
