DiploSoc ELECTIONS 2012-2013

Dear all,

If you thought the term would pass without a single DiploSoc event, you were wrong: we've got elections coming :) But just to keep everyone on the edge, we've left it to the very last minute. So please note the date:
Thursday, 29 March
6pm
Room K4U.12
Strand



Looking back at what DiploSoc has achieved, with your help, since it was founded exactly one year ago, we have reason to be proud and optimistic about the future. The next committee will inherit a society with not only its own website, newsletter & email system, databases and other such resources, but also a range of ideas (some in advanced planning stage, like the Magazine) and contacts for future projects and events.

It is basically a turnkey project based on a solid concept, which has proven its potential by eliciting your very interest and that of other some 550 people (currently on our mailing list).

The vision that was proposed at the start of the year, that of connecting Diplomacy Society to the London diplomatic community, and of taking advantage of our location in the heart of this great city, still stands. We are convinced that a new team with more time than we had will be able to continue from where we left off and make the most of DiploSoc's potential.

In that sense, we encourage those of you with enthusiasm for diplomacy and international affairs, and with enough time (we strongly recommend you'll be in your 2nd year next year, for this job), to stand in the elections.

ELECTION DETAILS

There are 9 positions available on the Committee:
- President
- Vice President
