Hello BUILDS!

Elections for E-Board are upon us. On April 2, 2014 elections will
occur, elections will occur in person in the Boat Room [r/Boat/Vote/].
Individuals who want to run for an office should email acm at bu.edu with
the position they want to run for and some reasoning. Traditionally we
have no official day on which people present their platforms for why
they should be elected for a position. However, feel free to post in
the Facebook group and Email Group to announce your candidacy and why
you should be considered.

The deadline for being on the ballot is  Monday, March 31, 2014. If
you want to suggest a candidate to run for you please list the other
people (must be mutual) and a silly party name that will be present on
the ballot under the discretion of current BUILDS graduating officers
(specifically, George, Andrew and Chris [Me]).

Those who cannot show up in person can send acm at bu.edu and email and
your vote will be counted. You should be a BUILDS member to cast a
vote. Winners will be announced the following day on April 3, 2014.

Below are descriptions of the roles each position plays.

President:
  - Must lead meetings
  - Must interface with Advisor (Leonid Reyzin), CS Department, ECE
department, etc.
  - Should interface with SAO
  - May make decisions for BUILDS in times of extreme crisis. Have
final say in a moment of deadlock.
  - Should be wise.

Vice-President:
  - Must lead by example (do projects!)
  - Should enforce policies
  - Should have a role in interfacing with other student groups.
    - MakeBU, CE++, GAI, etc.
  - Should lead meetings when President is not present.

Treasurer:
  - Must be the main handler of $$
  - Should be willing to be the main interface to SAO

Secretary:
  - Must take meeting minutes
  - Must manage BUILDS list and BUILDS facebook group.
  - Should help maintain some social media presence if deemed necissary
  - Should manage website (may delegate)
  - Should help wherever necessary
  - May have some hand in IT management of BUILDS (suggested).

If you have any questions email acm at bu.edu. Just as a note, your first
major task will end up being recruiting and also interfacing with the
MakeBU organizers group for the following year, assuming there is
still interest in being involved with them.

Happy Hacking,
  Chris Woodall
  Soon to be Former President of BUILDS
