IE Saudi Arabia Club Madrid Chapter at a glance

Written on December 10, 2013 by Campus Life in Geographic

saudi arabia2IE Saudi Arabia Club Madrid Chapter was only established in February 2013 and has 5 members in its board. Shorty after its establishment the Club members organized a visit to the Ambassador of Saudi Arabia to Spain HH Prince Mansour bin Khalid with the dean of IE business School Santiago Íñiguez. During that visit the Dean and the Ambassador discussed the future plans of IE Business School and how to improve the cooperation.

Later in June, the Club cooperated with IE MENA office and Casa Arabe in meeting a small group of sophomore students from PSU´s College for Women from Saudi Arabia. The girls gave a presentation to IE students and faculty about there university and their experiences as young women in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

IE Saudi Arabia Club also effectively participated in the Global Village. The club members were dressed in Saudi costumes and served local Saudi food to other students. They were also distributing publications in English and in Spanish about Saudi Arabia.

saudi arabia3On the first week of November 2013, IE Saudi Arabia Club and the Saudi Spanish Center of Islamic Economics and Finance organized a trip for 18 MBA students (9 guys and 9 girls) to Saudi Arabia. Students from Japan, Colombia, El Salvador, Switzerland, USA, Mexico, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Germany visited Saudi Arabia for the first time. You can read about this trip HERE

The best four in each group qualified to the quarter-finals stage and the winners moved on to the semi-finals, which were played last week. Piononos made their way by beating Gypsy F.C. in an exciting game with a last minute goal that settled the score in 5-4 to Piononos. Schlie was able to beat Heisenberg in the other semi-final by 6-0.

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.
