Next General MeetingàElections

They have been changed to Wednesday, February 26th at 12pm CST and we will finish by 12:50pm.  This was done due to the high volume of exams occurring during the week and choosing a day more towards the middle so that there weren’t as many conflicts.  In order to make things run a little more efficiently, please come into Hixson-Lied G04 right away and the pizza will be passed through the rows.  We will have bottled water and soda to help expedite the process.  Surveys will be sent at the meeting and a password will be given verbally during the meeting to make sure that only people attending the meeting are voting. Those who vote at the meeting will be placed into a drawing for a prize so please plan to attend the elections meeting!
