If you want to run for a position, you simply need to be a paid member of the society and tell us at the event why you think you would be suitable for the position - introduce yourself, why you think you would be a good at the role. A simple majority wins, votes will be anonymous.

This is a brilliant opportunity to become involved with the society and is great for your CV.
