Gscis Dissertation Guide

Dear Members,
Here are the bios for the slate of candidates for the next year (in some cases--where there are fresh faces-- the term is two years). A ballot has been sent to each member in good standing of the caucus. We need a minimum of 15% of the members to vote to constitute a valid election. You can check all the boxes or only those persons that you wish to approve. Only the current treasurer, Seifudein Adem, will handle the ballots. You may also write in candidates if you wish. (Even if your candidate does not get elected, this gives us a change to add new persons to our roster for the next round of elections.) Just in case, a ballot copy has been appended as a link to this note as well. Please cut and paste it.
