  • Two Project Manager positions are available.
  • Candidates must run on a primary platform of either inclusion, operations, or finances, sharing project ideas that they have in mind when giving their candidate speech. Primary platforms should be listed next to candidates’ names on the ballot.
  • As long as a quota is met and a majority of votes cast are not “none-of-the above” (per sections C.d.ii.9 and 10 of Cloyne’s bylaws), then the following holds: If two candidates running on the same platform receive the most votes of all candidates, only the one with more is elected. The other position will go to candidates for other platforms (if any).
  • When this position is filled, Project Managers serve until the end of the following spring if elected in fall or summer, or until the end of the current semester if elected in spring. If a candidate elected in spring is not available or interested in serving over the summer, the position remains vacant during that time.

Realms of Platforms:

To help candidates plan their election platforms, the realms of the platforms are brainstormed below. Project Managers are not expected to work on projects that improve all or even most aspects of a platform’s realm, but they are expected to work on a few aspects primarily of a single realm. Projects may consist of revisions to or the creation of surveys, guiding documents, discussions, resources, policies, systems, and brainstorms. This is in development, and as such is up for discussion and non-exhaustive.
