Executive Board Nominations Still Needed
The Graduate Student
Association (GSA) Senate held elections for the 2014-2015 GSA Executive board
earlier this month. Three of the five executive board positions have been
filled through this process (President, Vice President, and Treasurer)
though we have had no nominations for the Historian or Vice
President for External Affairs (VP-EA) positions.
Because elections have
already passed these positions will be appointed by the new executive board,
but we'd like to maintain procedures similar to our election process, so we've
opened a second round of nominations for these positions.
For information about
the roles and responsibilities of these two positions, please check the GSA
Constitution. http://gsa.umbc.edu/about-gsa/constitution/#IV And
It should be noted
that each of these positions has an associated honorarium which
recognizes the cost of the graduate students time commitment to the the
association. More information about honorariums is in our bylaws, but the
honorariums may be increased for next year’s positions.
If you choose to
nominate yourself (or someone else) for Historian or the VP-EA, please send an
email toGSA@UMBC.edu with
the subject line "GSA EB Nomination for _____" containing the
position you/they intend to run for. If you are nominating someone else
please CC them on the email. The nomination email should contain your
unofficial transcript and a less than 200 word statement of intent. If
you could please CC this email to DJ-Miller@umbc.edu.
