Resources for the Sangam Exec Committee members. (Note: requires a valid MIT certificate.)
Sangam’s primary goals are:
Sangam membership is open and free to everyone in the MIT community. If you are at MIT, we count you as a member if you subscribe to Sangam mailing lists.
Sangam is formally organized as a collection of groups/committees. Of these, the Sangam Executive Committee (SEC) is the elected leadership body and takes overall responsibility for coordinating and supporting the other groups organizing Sangam activities. Other clubs associated with Sangam include the Indian Business Club which organizes talks and seminars related to doing business in India.
To ensure that Sangam remains an open and responsive organization that serves its goals, all the main leadership positions are elected by the general membership. The elections are held during Spring term, usually falling in the first week of March. The term of the officers is approximately one calendar year, though the entire period between elections and the end of the Spring semester is considered transitional and the outgoing SEC is expected to remain heavily involved to ensure that the incoming SEC is properly trained and prepared for the challenges that await them.
Any MIT student, graduate or undergraduate, can run for a position on the SEC. If you are interested in running for office, please seek out and talk to the current or previous officers. They can give you an idea of what is involved and what you can hope to gain/accomplish. Also, you might want to get involved with the organization of some Sangam events before you commit to the SEC. That way, you will have some idea of how things actually get done. Attend other events to get a feeling for what Sangam does.
A couple of weeks or so before the elections, an official call for nominations will be announced to electronic mailing lists and flyers announcing the elections will be posted around the MIT campus. Nominations, including self-nominations, and position statements will then be collected (send them to sangam-elections[at]mit[dot]edu) and then announced to the Sangam general membership through email and elections webpage. Nominations are allowed from the floor at the time of the elections as well. Nominated candidates will have a chance to present themselves and their ideas to the membership and the membership will have a chance to question them openly. Once the candidates have left the room, the membership will have a brief opportunity to speak openly and discuss about the candidates after which they will be voted upon. In order to ensure maximum participation of voters in the election, voters will also be allowed to vote online. Voters will need to have MIT Web Certificates in order to vote online. The online voting will continue for a couple of days. The candidates with the most votes will win the position.
