Another way to look at it is that there are 28 members who could be chosen for president.        28                 =  28

That leaves 27 members remaining from which to choose the vice president.                             27 x 28         =  756

That leaves 26 members remaining from which to choose the treasurer.                                     26 x 756       =  19,656

And finally, there are 25 members left from which to choose the secretary.                                  25 x 19,656  =  491,400

I'm not sure what "slates of candidates" means, but I think this is just 28 choose 4 = 20475.
