Any member of the NDP in good standing can stand for election to the Executive. As you can see, the list of positions is quite lengthy and not all are filled every year.

If you would like to express your interest in standing for election prior to the meeting, would like to stand for a position but cannot attend the meeting, or if you have questions about what executive positions involve in terms of time and responsibility, please email to [email protected]. Nominations, including self-nominations, will be taken from the floor at the meeting. For contested positions, each candidate will have two minutes to address the membership prior to the vote.
