The first all candidates meeting was held in Abbotsford, B101 on February 18. These meetings are designed to allow executive candidates the opportunity to respond directly to student questions.

Questions were presented and the first two candidates who wished to answer were given the opportunity. Board restructure, student engagement, and whether or not to remain a part of the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations (CASA) were all discussed.

A 10-minute question period followed, at which students were able to ask their own questions.

The second all candidates meeting will be held in Chilliwack, Main Hall on February 20. Students will have a second opportunity to pose questions to the executive candidates.

The campaign period runs until February 26, followed immediately by the polling period. Polls will be open until March 5, and students can vote online through myUFV.
