Platform Guidelines

Due February 4, 2014


Each declared candidate is allowed to distribute a PRE-APPROVED platform during her/his “Meet the Candidates” session. All candidates must submit drafts of their platforms NO LATER than February 4, 2014. Should platforms not be received by this date, you will NOT be allowed to use your platform/run at International Convention. You must send a digital copy (via the election portal) as well as a hard copy to Mika/Michaela’s homes. The digital copy may be distributed to the membership or posted online prior to International Convention. (If possible, submit your platform in a PDF format).

All platforms must be approved again during the Candidates Meeting at IC. If the platform a candidate brings to IC is NOT the platform received in the mail and approved by Mika/Michaela, that candidate will NOT be able to use it. Obviously, if a candidate was asked to make changes, and those changes were made, their platform may be distributed. Please read the following guidelines very carefully, and do not hesitate to ask any questions. If any changes have to be made, you will need time to correct them before IC; it is suggested that platforms are submitted as early as possible. Don’t leave it for the last minute.
