The way the slate system works is that instead of running individually for specific positions, you run as a group for all of the positions. This year, there are three groups running, all with eight members on their slate. The group I'm part of is called The Kelley Advocates, and I am running for VP of Student Affairs. That will mean overseeing all the social events, athletic events, tailgates and some clubs. It's a big job and will involve helping to organize and execute about 80 events over the next year.
The rules of the campaign really limit how much you can campaign. So since we have constraints, we have to take advantage of the best MBA for marketing. The way you can campaign is via word of mouth, one flyer, and one poster. While we are still finishing our poster, we did drop our flyer:
This week the campaign involves:
- Answering questions from top MBA students during the coffee break on Monday
- A 15-minute presentation on Friday
- Q&A of potential presidents on Friday after the presentations
