SLUGS is holding its Executive Elections Thursday April 3rd at 6 PM in the Linguistics Lounge! We are looking to fill five positions this year, described below. Note that "Design Coordinator" is a new position we are eager to fill! If you enjoy making fun graphics, now's your chance to show off your skills!

If you are interested in running, send an email to slugs[at] mentioning which position(s) you are interested in. (You can run for more than one position, but you can only win once!) If you cannot come to the election, but still wish to run, include a campaign blurb we can read at the election on your behalf.

The positions available are:

-Manages SLUGS events and activities, fulfils SLUGS’ obligations to ASSU by attending ASSU meetings and events, ensures responsibilities are delegated and completed successfully.

Events Coordinator
-Assists the external president with club promotion, manages the purchase of food and set up for various events and activities, and brain-storms ideas for SLUGS events.

-Assists the internal president with bookkeeping of the club's expenses and managing our budget. Takes a running log of responsibilities, noting who has to do what and when.

Information Officer
-Manages the online face of the club, forwards emails to the SLUGS listserv, maintains the website (written in PHP, but complete with a user-friendly updating interface thanks to Caroline Liu), and posts from SLUGS social media accounts.

Design Coordinator
-Creates graphics to help promote SLUGS events, for use on the website (when needed), and to help disseminate other information of interest to the SLUGS membership.
Note: Candidates running for Design Coordinator may wish to bring an example of their work to show voters at the election; however, we do not have any formal requirements regarding this.

Congratulations also to Jessica Yeung, our continuing President-Internal! (Manages SLUGS finance binder, keeps SLUGS team updated on department goings-on by attending department meetings, ensures responsibilities are delegated and completed successfully.)

The search for the optimal candidates is on!
