***2/12 = OFFICER ELECTIONS, SO SHOW UP!***
----------

OFFICER ELECTIONS

...are next Tuesday!

Positions to Run For:
-Officer (4)
-Climbing Chair
-Hiking/Backpacking Chair
-White-water Chair

Useful Info:
1. Nominate yourself or your friend by sending an owl to Kate (mkm55); nominations accepted until Tuesday night
2. It is possible to co-chair a position, just let Kate know
3. Going abroad/co-oping for half of next year? See #2
4. There is no difference between the 4 officer positions except on paper
5. The Voting Process per Position:
-Candidates will face the assembled masses (aka. whoever shows up, which should be AS MANY MEMBERS AS ARE HUMANLY POSSIBLE IN RM 252 CL @ 9 PM)
-Members (aka. masses) will ask the candidates questions about their experience/plans for next year/favorite color, etc.
-Other candidates for the same position will wait outside the room during the questioning… I mean "interview"
-Members will vote, and then we do it all over again for the next position
**Officer elections work the same way, except voters will vote for 3 people, and the top 4 will be selected

***COME OUT TO VOTE/RUN***

A PETITION

The lovely Kristen Tobin is asking POCers to sign a petition to halt fracking until the science catches up on how it effects people/the environment.
