MSC Executive Board Election Platforms

Dear students,

Attached you will find the platforms submitted for the 2013-2014 MSC Executive Council Elections, to take place November 12th. While any IUSM student is welcome to ask questions of candidates and participate in the discussions that occur during the elections, only voting members (MSC Execs, Class Officers, and Center Reps) will be able to vote on the candidates. Thus, I urge any interested student to contact a voting member or to attend elections if they would like to participate.
The MSC Executives represent all medical students statewide and help facilitate/spearhead initiatives to improve the academic environment and student life at IUSM. I strongly encourage all students to take an interest in these elections!
The candidates are listed below in alphabetical order by last name for each office:
  • President - Joel Franco, Jenna Fritsch
  • Executive VP - Chad Flowers, Joel Franco, James Grogan
  • Vice President of Membership - Jason White
  • Secretary - Rahul Abhyankar, Dessi Moneva
  • Treasurer - Charles Goodwin, Darren Plummer, Jason White
Further details about elections are included in the attached platforms packet. If you have any questions about this process or about how to get more involved in the school, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thanks, and best of luck to our candidates!

MSC Executive Board Elections!

Want to get more involved? Do you feel passionate about student issues and want to make a difference at IUSM?
If so, I invite you to consider running for one or more of the Medical Student Council Executive Officer positions! All five positions are up for election and last for one year starting in January:
  • President
  • Executive Vice President
  • Vice President of Membership
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary
All students in good standing are eligible to run for these positions. You may run for as many positions as you like but please only submit one platform (2 pages or less - ideally one!). Submit all platforms to mscexec@IUPUI.EDU by Thursday October 25 at midnight.
Elections will take place at the MSC meeting at 6pm on Monday, November 12 in the IUPUI Campus Center, Room CE409. Please plan on attending in person or via polycom if you are running for office. Contenders will be asked to give a brief speech followed by Q&A. 
If you have any questions, please review the Member Responsibilities here and feel free to email any of the current MSC Executives with questions!
Best of Luck!
Jenna Fritsch
MSC Secretary 2011-12



Wanted to give everyone a heads up on when the MSC meetings will be for the rest of the Fall Semester:
Wed Oct 17 CE 405
Mon Nov 12 CE 409
Thurs Nov 29 CE 268

There was really no time in December that seemed to be a good time for a meeting, so we have scheduled two in November. Remember that MSC Exec elections will take place at the official November meeting (Nov 12), and the last meeting of the calendar year (Nov 29) will be jointly run by the incoming and outgoing board.

Please mark your Calendars! Of course I will be sending out a school-wide email closer to each date to remind everyone!
Hope to see everyone there!
Jenna Fritsch
MSC Secretary 2012

Candidates should write a one-page platform (details below) and speak at the next MSC meeting (Wed Nov 9, 3-5 minutes with questions).

Platforms are due on Wed Oct 26. Each candidate should write one platform, regardless of the number of positions he or she is running for. The platform should include:
Why the student is a good candidate for the position

What specific ideas the student has for the position

Responsibilities for each position can be found here (click Member Responsibilities). Those interested are encouraged to contact the current officers to find out more about the positions.
