Shavak Matalia
Hi guys! I’m Shavak and I’m running to be one of your next Officers of the Mace.

My central tenant will be to maximise the exposure of our members to a breadth of perspectives on the issues that define our times.

1) I will re-establish the frequency of public debates, increasing opportunities for members to engage with the views of invited speakers.
2) I will pull every lever possible to attract high profile speakers to our public debates. This includes leveraging our location in London and our potential to collaborate with other debating societies to boost the clout of speaker invitations. I will even allow for the remote presence of speakers if they cannot attend in person.
3) I will champion an approach of giving members greater input into the themes of future motions.
4) If favoured by the membership, I will pursue a debating agenda more closely aligned to contemporary disputes in the intellectual sphere.

A vote for me will be a vote for commitment, increased influence for the membership, and truly fascinating debate.
