Are you studying archaeology, bioanthropology, anthropology, or museum and heritage studies at ANU, want to get involved with the student community and be part of the 2022 ABACUS executive? It’s that time of year again where we need to start looking for next year’s ABACUS committee! Being part of ABACUS is a fantastic way to meet new friends and build a community at uni, while also looking excellent on your CV and providing great experience for your future career! Due to covid, we are running elections a little differently this year, and asking you to nominate yourself for positions ahead of time. Please use the google doc linked here to nominate yourself for up to 3 different positions: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeoylIQzEsL-ye3qHNtTzaxjKNlAj143vsEO9xBGow3M8FShw/viewform?usp=sf_link
Please only nominate for a role if you will be studying at ANU for the full academic year of 2022, since this is a requirement of the ABACUS constitution.

If you have any questions about any of these roles, and particularly the presidency, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or messaging our Facebook page, we are here to offer our support! Nominations will be closing on October 17th, after which voting will be conducted anonymously online and will be announced in late October or early November at either a end of year event or AGM (depending on Covid restrictions).

I’m sure we can all agree that 2021 has been an up and down year, with us able to have events in the first half and then in the second half being in lockdown. But we are looking forward to a much better 2022. We’re so excited to find our wonderful next ABACUS team!
