The Ryerson Communication and Design Society (RCDS) is holding its Board of Directors (BoD) election Feb. 10-12.
Since the RCDS’ BoD lifted its Jan. 21 motion to ban electoral slates, candidates can run with a team or individually. Fourteen candidates are running individually, while Engage FCAD — the only slate — is running with five.
“Our slate is more of a support system right now than it is a political, actual slate,” said RCDS vice-president marketing and communications candidate Sydney Wong.
Current RCDS BoD members are also running, including VP events Tavia Bakowski, who is campaigning for president. School of graphic communications management director Antek Krystecki is running for VP marketing and communications.
Some topics commonly mentioned by candidates concern RCDS’ accessibility along with awareness and collaboration among Faculty of Communication and Design (FCAD) students.
The election occurs on D2L.
