Voting at the AGM:

Members’ of the Deakin Law Students’ Society Geelong who hold voting rights are defined in the Constitution as being paid-up members of the Society who hold a membership a minimum of 10 days in advance of the AGM. In other terms, if you wish to vote on the positions vacant at the AGM you need to either already hold a current 2019 membership with DLSS Geelong or purchase one prior to Sunday September 8th. You may run for a position without being a member of the Society, but you would not be able to vote for yourself for that position or vote on any other positions.

Please note that any membership purchased through DUSA is valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. So, if you purchase a membership now, you will be a full DLSS Geelong member until August 2020. Please use the hyperlink above to purchase a membership through the DUSA website.
