International Law Society Seeking Executive Board Candidates for 2015-2016

In lieu of an official meeting with all members, we will be holding officer elections via e-mail.

This e-mail is meant to both notify everyone of the election as well as a request for persons interested in running for an officer position to make that known to me ASAP. I will follow this e-mail with another e-mail including the names of candidates and officer positions, as well as any comments they would like to include as a way of campaigning for themselves.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW OF YOUR INTEREST IN AN OFFICER POSITION BY THURSDAY NIGHT 4/16/15. PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR NAME, AND WHICH OFFICER POSITION(S) YOU ARE INTERESTED IN, ALONG WITH ANY STATEMENTS YOU WOULD LIKE TO INCLUDE AS A WAY TO “CAMPAIGN” FOR YOURSELF.

I will draft the candidate list on Friday Morning, 4/17/15, and leave it open for voting until the same evening. I will then announce the results via e-mail in a third and final e-mail on Friday, 4/20/15.

Thank you. I hope this isn’t too confusing. As I said earlier, being this close to finals, V.P. Prad and I decided this would be the best method of taking care of this.

Best Regards,

Mohammad Abdallah
President, International Law Society (ILS)
