Red Deer College — It’s time to Make Your Mark in the Executive elections

Date Posted: March 6, 2017

We’re getting close to everyone’s favorite time of year again – Spring Executive Elections!

This is the opportunity for students to make their mark by running for the opportunity to represent and advocate for their peers. And, just as importantly, it’s a chance to make their mark by voting for their 2017-2018 student leaders!

Nominations for the four Students’ Association Executive positions (President, VP College Affairs, VP Operations, VP Student Life) open at the Spring General Meeting – 11 a.m. Tuesday, February 28 in the Far Side Bar & Grill, and shall remain open for a period of seven (7) days.
Campaign week opens the evening of Tuesday, March 7 and continues until Wednesday, March 15. We are still ironing out the finer details of the week’s events, but make sure to have your head on swivel for election and campaign posters.

Stop and chat with all the candidates in the halls, and don’t miss campaign speeches and debates (Thursday, March 9 and Monday, March 13).

Voting begins online 9 a.m. Tuesday, March 14 and closes 3 p.m. Thursday, March 16. All you need to vote is your Loop credentials; vote using your computer, tablet, or smart device from anywhere you can access the Internet. It’s never been easier!

Join us 4:30 p.m. Thursday, March 16 in the Far Side Bar & Grill where we will announce your new Executive Council at our Results Gala. Enjoy the festivities and be one of the first people to congratulate the successful candidates.

Now’s the time to Make Your Mark, RDC!
