This is a call for participation at the Tromsø Doctoral Students (TODOS) Annual General Meeting (AGM). The AGM is the highest decision ranking body in TODOS. At the Annual General Meeting, the Board Chair will present the annual report and there will be elections for new board members. All registered PhD candidates at UiT – The Artic University of Norway have meeting and voting rights at the AGM.
 
The AGM will elect a new  Board Chair, Vice Board Chair, Chair of Social Affairs, Chair of Academic Affairs, Treasurer and a General Board Member. The TODOS Board does important work for all PhD candidates at UiT and is dependent on your participation. If you want to be part of the Board, you get relevant organizational experience and either an extension of your work contract or equivocation of teaching duty hours. Being a board member also opens up opportunities for working at the national level with Stipendiatorganisasjonene i Norge (SiN – Association of Doctoral Organizations in Norway) and the European Council for Doctoral Candidates and Junior Researchers (EURODOC). 
 
If you intend to run for a position please send an e-mail indicating what position you would like to run for. It is possible to run for a position even though you have not sent an e-mail and even though you can’t participate physically in the meeting (in which case you have to notify us). Even if you do not want to run for a position, please show up and use your right to vote. This is your opportunity to influence directly who will be representing you in the TODOS Board and who will be creating and hosting social and academic events in the coming year.
 
It is not mandatory to sign up, but if you are attending and want breakfast, please let us know by the 18th of November by sending an e-mail to todos@uit.no so that we can order enough food and coffee for everyone.
