IE Club Election Process

Written on December 5, 2013 by Campus Life in Geographic, Other Activities, Professional, Social, Sports

Election period

The election period will start on December 9th, right after the Club Fair. The exact dates are provided in IE Club Election Schedule post in the blog.

All members of an IE Club who are currently studying at IE or are partners of IE students, are allowed to raise their candidatures in order to occupy vacant positions in the Board of the club in question.

The maximum number of clubs in which a current IE student/partner can be a coordinator is two.

 

Rules

Club coordinators: 5 rules to remember

1.     3 members of the current board can stay for the next term of office. The names of the coordinators staying should be sent to the campus.life@ie.edu before 11:59 pm on Sunday, December 15th.

2.     New students can send their self-nominations for the clubs of their interest during the same week (from December 9th to 15th at 11:59 pm). The completed nomination forms should be sent to campus.life@ie.edu. Campus Life will share the candidatures with the corresponding Club Boards on December 17th.

3.     If the total number of candidatures (the members of the board staying + new candidates) is less or equal to 6 after 11:59 pm on December 15th, no elections will be required and the 3 new candidates will be announced members of the new board of the club.

In case the total number of new candidates is less than 3, more than 3 members of the previous board can stay for the next term of office, always given that the total number of members of the board does not exceed 6 coordinators.

4.     If the total number of candidatures (the members of the board staying + new candidates) is bigger than 6, the club will have to organize elections in order to determine the new board.

The members from the previous board who are staying for the next term of office (no more than 3) do not have to participate in the elections, their seats in the new board are automatically allocated.

5.     The names of all the Coordinators elected should be officially communicated to Campus Life office for the formal approval and update of the database of Club Boards.

 

Elections: 4 rules to remember

1.     If there are more than 6 candidatures for the board of a club, elections are necessary.

2.     A member of the previous board who should be appointed to organize the elections of the club.

3.     The clubs are requested to conduct elections for the new board in a free, transparent and fair manner. Selecting the most appropriate system for the election is the sole responsibility of the current Club Coordinators, always given that the system is participative and democratic.

4.    Dismissal of the Board: IE Campus Life has the authority to dismiss a Coordinator or the whole Board if there are proofs of violation of IE Ethics Code or the principles, values or norms contained in this guide.

 

In both cases (if no elections are necessary or if the elections were held) the roles of the members of the new board can be freely decided by new coordinators and should be communicated to Campus Life no later than the dates indicated in “Election Schedule” document.

IE Spanish Outreach Club: Knowing Madrid in a different way

Written on November 28, 2013 by Campus Life in Social

Knowing MadridWho?

The event was open to all students from IE. Additionally they could bring both their partners and friends. The group however was limited to 25 people in order for the guide to be able to clearly communicate and deliver the information of the buildings and the city.

The guide was one of our team members, María Luisa de Miguel, an architect and current student of the MIM program.

What?
An explanation of the four most important art museums of the city of Madrid took place. These are: The Thyssen Museum, the Reina Sofia Museum, the Prado Museum, the Caixa Forum Museum. All of them located in what is known as the triangle of art. The urbanism of the area, especially the development of the Castellana Street was also given in order for the participant to have a better understanding of the city of Madrid

The combination of these four buildings covers different approaches to architecture and diverse examples of how an expansion of a building can be done.

Why?
The intention of this event was to help students understand the city they have been living or will live for a minimum period of a year. Madrid has many interesting buildings to offer and is known for many of its architecture. Like all or our events, it is always a great way to do “networking” while getting more involved in the culture of Spain and the city of Madrid.

When?
The event took place on Saturday, the 9th of November, during the morning from 11:00 till 14:00.

Interview with a Club: IE Music Club

Written on September 19, 2013 by Campus Life in Other Activities, Social

Who are we?IMG-20130918-WA004

Music is a great form of art and for those passionate about it, it is a way to transform oneself to another world. IE Music Club understands that all students at IE work hard throughout and need time to unwind and follow their interests. Music is a one of the best forms of stress buster and we have a mission to help students pursue their passion and meet likeminded people to explore, listen, and create music.

Current Coordinators

Nikhil Aggarwal (President) – he is studying IMBA prior to which he was a finance professional. He is a singer (oh yes, he always wanted someone to call him that), not by profession but by interest and also likes exploring new music. He is the sole club coordinator of the Music Club and performed at the IE India Club’s Diwali event in 2012. He is from India and a few of his favorite English songs are – Iris from Goo Goo Dolls and With or Without You from U2.

IMG-20130918-WA001Club Activities

The club holds weekly music practice sessions on Wednesday’s from 7pm – 9pm at studio BoxInBox (c/ Sanchez Pacheco 82). This has been possible due to full support and effort from Giedre and the Music Club would like to say a special thanks to her for getting this through. Everyone who is interested in music such as singing or playing instruments can drop in and jam with us. Apart from that the music club is open for other suggestions regarding the activities that members are interested in.

Our Vision

The main project that IE Music Club is working towards is to get likeminded people having an interest in music together and form an IE Band. Once that is formed and they have rehearsed together,  IE Music Club also plans to create an official IE slogan to be used in the years to come.

Get in touch and participate!

The club has a Facebook Page that can be liked to receive the latest updates from IE Music Club. There is a IE Music Club group as well on Facebook. Any student can become a member of the music club by going to IE communities and selecting the box in front of IE Music Club on the clubs page. The music club coordinator can also be contacted separately at his email.
