NEWS - Elections for the very first Online Branch Committee are upon us. Candidate registration opens on October 19  and nominations close on November 19.

An elections chat room thread is open for more information and news updates.

All Equity Members are eligible to stand, propose candidates and vote but MUST have opted-in to the Online Branch to receive a voting link by the close of nominations on November 19.

Membership is currently 500+ members.

What is the Online Branch? It is an area within the Members Area that has all the rights and powers of a geographic branch but you can visit it at any time you like from your own home or anywhere you have access to a computer, iDevice and the Internet. You can read a guide for first-time users here.

NOTE: Branch members have additional access permissions to enter the Online Branch which activates a left-hand menu displaying functions such at Motions, Debates and Voting.

What is important to you? Is there an aspect of our industry you'd like to discuss? Do you have a question about the industry? Would you like to ask fellow professionals for advice?
