Weekly Update 3/25

Hola SHPEitos,
Well we are back at school, here to grind it out until the end of the semester. Here are some upcoming opportunities to lessen the grind:

GBM

There will be a GBM this week however, we are going to have to delay the meeting to 8:30 as we will be hosting elections, and this time works best for all those running. It will still be held on Wednesday and in the Library in room 4535.

Elections

Speaking of elections, we will be hosting elections on Wednesday 3/27 during the GBM. If you intend to run please come prepared with a small speech of roughly 1-2 min explaining why our members should vote for you. Remember you can apply to as many positions as you want, with their respective speech. Keep in mind that being part of Eboard is a learning experience and everyone will help you out in the process. Attached below will be a description of all the positions. Good Luck to all those running!
