[Swing Club ] IMPORTANT: RE-VOTE!

Hey Swing Club!!!

Thanks for your response to the election! We have two positions for which we need to conduct a re-vote.

The bottom candidate for each position was dropped and now you have the opportunity to vote for one of the remaining two!

Here is the link to the poll: http://goo.gl/forms/uJ4StOL63E

POLL WILL CLOSE TOMORROW (3/4) AT 8:00 PM.
PLEASE VOTE AGAIN! IT TAKES TWO SECONDS.

Once again, here are the blurbs for the remaining candidates:

PRESIDENT

Khalid Hassan – Hey Swing Club! I’m Khalid (aka that really cool dude that taught the shim-sham last semester and East-Coast this semester) and you should elect me for President! I really like what Carly has done with the club these past two years and I have some great ideas that will keep us developing as an organization. I’ve been thoroughly involved with Swing my two years at UVa, from first learning a tuck-turn to volunteering at our dances to taking lessons downtown from Swing C’ville. There have been a lot of cool things (live bands, diversity in teaching) and a lot of not-so-cool things (low turn-out at dances, people leaving mid-semester). I can fix those bad things! The skill I’ve attuned through my experience on the UPC marketing committee (making posters, communicating with clients) would translate well to my responsibilities as Swing President and would allow the Swing Club to more effectively reach UVa students. Moreover, I really like our Swing Club and I want to make it better. I am not our best dancer (*cough*cough* Luke) but that’s not all the Swing Club is about. We want to relax, have fun, live a little and this swanky dude has got a list of ways to do just that! So vote for me for Swing President!

Abhisheik Sharma – My lovely super amazing people, you should vote me, Abhisheik Sharma, as your next President! I have the organizational skills, the hard-working personality, and the exceptional desire to make swing club the best swing club ever! I’m currently on swing council and I know the things we do well and the thing we can work on, so as president I can make these changes. I’ve already helped others with their jobs while doing my treasurer duties, so I might as well overlook the council. If I could vote, I’d vote Carly Sawyer as President, but we can’t and that saddens me, but I believe I am the next best option because I strive to be as awesome as Carly in everything I do! Remember vote for me because I have what it takes to be a great Swing Club president and voting for me is what Thomas Jefferson would do! Thanks! J

SOCIAL CHAIR

Madeline Bishop – I, Madeline Bishop, would like to be considered for the position of social chair. I love swing and would be thrilled to have the opportunity to be more involved next year. As social chair I would like to plan social swing events for every other week (things like movie nights, roller skating, Jump Cville, etc) so that club members have a chance to get to know each other outside the AFC. Lambeth seemed to work really well for people this year, and I’ll be living their next year, so we can continue to utilize that space for events as well.

Nora Burgess – I’m currently a 2nd year in the college and this year’s social chair in swing. I’m running for Vice President and Social Chair. I joined swing club last year just to try something new and it turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve made at UVA! πŸ™‚ I made some amazing friends through swing and even more astounding even became a decent swing dancer (my coordination is not always there)! I hope to continue my involvement in the club as a dancer and officer, which is why I am running for Vice President (and Social Chair again) of Swing Club. I’ve loved getting to know the new members this year and planning social events for club bonding, and though I would happily continue doing this if re-elected, I would like to take on more responsibility and contribute more to the overall running of the club. Carly has always been such a role model and an amazing teacher in swing so I’m grateful to have gotten to learn from her through being more actively involved with the club this year as an officer. It’s been a wonderful experience to get to teach lessons and plan the social events and dances. Although, as much fun as learning swing is it’s the people you meet in swing that keep ya coming back! Swing dance really is a social dance because you get to meet and dance with so many new people but it also presents a place to learn and improve right along side fellow swingers! This is why I love swing and hope that you will elect me to be Social Chair!

Thanks, y’all!
