Our second meeting of the semester will be held Wednesday, March 4th @ 7pm in the Graduate Student Lounge.
See here for our agenda for the March 4th meeting and here for an updated Spring 2015 budget; please take a close look at the latter, as we will be voting to approve the budget during the general meeting next week.
The executive board has also determined that though the GSC voting membership accepted amendments to the bylaws last year, the public records have not reflected these changes. In review, we recommend grammatical and organizational edits (spelling; spacing and format; consistency in vocabulary, etc.) as well as the following changes to align with actual committee activities and existing practices:
Article V, Section 5 — Treasurer and Financial Committee
Article IX, Section 2 — Master’s Student Advocate Description
Article X, Section 4 — International Graduate Student Advocate and Advocacy Committee
Article XI, Section 1b — Elections for Internal Committee Members
Article XVI, Section 1 — Grant Funding process
See here for the updated bylaws and please review the above items, as these changes will be brought to a vote at next week’s meeting. As a reminder, only departmental representatives may vote on GSC motions, though all members of the graduate community may attend GSC general meetings.
As usual, we will provide pizza and beer. Looking forward!
