ABACUS: Junior Treasurer

Hi, everyone! I am Betty, a first-year Chemistry student. I am running for Treasurer of ABACUS for next academic year.

Having attended a few ABACUS events, I have already had a lot of unforgettable memories and met so many amazing people. I am constantly looking forward to gaining more fun experience from ABACUS. Therefore, I wish to be part of next year’s committee and lead the next generation.

Although I have no related past experience before, I consider myself a good fit because I was born with a natural interest in managing money and arranging budgets. Also, I have good organization and time-management and I am a good team player.

If I were elected as the Junior Treasurer, I would like to increase the budget via different methods in order to subsidize costs for events and bring more people in. Firstly, I would like to make profits by introducing events like variety shows, cake sales, and many others. Also, I will spend more budgets on advertisement in order to attract more people to join ABACUS. Moreover, I want to introduce a scheme called ‘one plus one’ in which members get rewards such as drink vouchers, event discounts and etc. if they successfully promote their friends to join ABACUS or attend other events.

Thank you for taking the time to read my manifesto and I truly hope to assist the growth of ABACUS as the Treasurer. So, please vote for me and thank you very much!
