MLC Elected Leadership Application Questions

Here are the application questions on the MLC Elected Leadership Application in Reggo. We recommend writing your application ahead of time in a plain-text editor (if you use Word, make sure to save it as a plain-text version) and then copying and pasting into the application form. Try to minimize your use of apostrophes and special characters like ampersands, as these occasionally mess up the application text when it is downloaded from the application system.
