This year will be the third year in a row that I am involved in ASD Elections in some way. For my first year of OT school, I ran for an ASD Steering Committee position. Last year, I was doing what I can to provide my classmates information at USC as well as providing advice for people who might need it. After some feedback from folks who were running last year, I decided to do the same in regards to providing advice. But, I will now be the person who will collect all the campaign related information from all candidates so that I can relay the information to the student body at USC. This includes emails, Facebook fan and group pages, OTConnection profiles, as well as any campaign related videos. After all, my intention is for every candidate to be playing at a level playing field in USC, which is one of the bigger OT or OTA programs around. I am also hoping that I would set a model for other OT or OTA programs to follow in the upcoming years. Yes, my way might sound like a little invasive (since I am sending friend requests on OTConnections and Facebook out of nowhere). But, I hope you candidates (whom most of you don't know me that well, if at all) understand my intent. My intent here is to best help you in a friendly, personable, but fair way.
Best of luck to the candidates who are running for an ASD position this year. Hope I get to as many of you soon one way or another- whether it's Facebook, email, or on here.
Thank you for your support of the election process!
Thank you for you support!
Thank you for supporting all of us candidates in the election process! Your approach seems like a really great way to inform your school, and I may see if someone wants to volunteer to do the same for my program.
Thank you for your support!
Thank you for your support in the elections and clearly with AOTA in general!
