Good morning all,

When you say that someone is nominated as in proposal for someone to run for office, what is this office about? Any office or does it mean a government position? I am always stuck whenever I see a description like that.

    Hello Vanda,

    The 'office' can be applied to a government position or any organisation which has a team of 'officers' - e.g. director, secretary, treasurer.

    He was nominated to run for the office of treasurer to the Church Council.
