Muhly Lounge - 3 MLH
ACM University of Iowa Chapter

Come participate in a HackerRank challenge! In preparation for the HCPC, we'll be hosting a small HackerRank competition open to all. Light refreshments and some snacks will be served. Challenge yourself!

Before the competition, we will be hosting a special election for the Vice President position for the upcoming academic year. Here are the rules for this election:

  • This special election will be held on April 19, 2018 at 6:30pm CST (UTC -5) in 3 MLH.
  • To run, you must be nominated by an ACM@UIOWA member by 11:59:59pm CST (UTC -5). You can nominate yourself or someone else, and all nominees will be notified via email of their nomination within 24 hours of their nomination or before 9:00:00am CST (UTC -5) April 19th, 2018, whichever comes first.
  • At the special election meeting, you will be given the opportunity to make a short speech (1-3 min) about why you want to run for the position you are running for and what you will bring to ACM. If you cannot make that time, please send Ryan Wedoff an email ( with a video submission of your speech.  
  • Each position will be run for separately, and votes will be cast by all in attendance at the special election meeting and any REQUESTED absentee ballots. Votes will be tallied using instant-runoff style elections, meaning candidates will be ranked 1-n in order of preference, where n is the number of total candidates for the position. For more information on instant runoff voting, see
  • If you cannot make the voting on Thursday, you may REQUEST an absentee ballot contacting Ryan Wedoff via email or Facebook by 5:30pm CST (UTC -5) on April 19th. You must cast your vote before voting closes in the Special Election meeting itself.
  • NOTE: Per the ACM@UIOWA constitution: Nominations for the Vice President are subject to rejection by unanimous decision of the current Officers. Such a rejection can be appealed to the Chapter Sponsor, who may override the rejection if deemed vindictive or unreasonable.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ryan Wedoff.
