Come to the second GSA General Meeting on Tuesday, September 16th, in 444B at 5:30! Attendance at this meeting is crucial, so mark your calendars! Of course, food will be provided.
This month we are having the GSA Officer elections and you must be present to vote! All candidates will give a short informal speech about why they are an adequate candidate for their job and then all contested positions will be put to a vote. Votes will be taken by casting ballots, and you must be present at the meeting to vote.
RATIFY THE BYLAWS
The current GSA bylaws can be found here. They were last updated and ratified in 2011 and much has changed. A new version of the bylaws has been drafted and is available online here. The new draft will be presented at the General Meeting and ratification of the bylaws will be approved by a majority vote.
During this section of the meeting we will be discussing upcoming events and responsibilities, fundraising events, and the long and short term goals of the GSA. Any relevant student issues should be brought up and discussed during this time. Discussion topics may include: student health insurance, the graduate student lounge, the 2014 Chili Cookoff, the student contract with Gold’s Gym (formerly Spectrum), ZipCar, GSA representatives for individual classes or international students, and student housing.
