EGSA: News and September Meeting

As you begin enjoying the weekend, please peruse these notes from the EGSA Council:

Meetings: Our first EGSA meeting of the semester will be Friday, September 4 at 3 PM in the SUB. (The second EGSA meeting will be October 2 at 3 PM. We may establish this “first Friday” time slot the regular time for all our meetings this semester).

Vacant Positions in EGSA:
Currently, the following EGSA positions need to be filled:

– one fundraising chair
– one GSA alternate
– both Professional Development Coordinator positions

We will take nominations for these positions at the September 4 meeting. Nominations will also be accepted by email.

Voting and EGSA dues:
After the September 4 meeting, all EGSA members will be allowed to vote by email on the above positions (all votes should be sent to

Bethany_Bear@baylor.edu). You may vote before paying your dues, but if you vote you are committing yourself to becoming a paying member. Dues are $10 (not $20). Bring your cash or check (payable to “EGSA”) to Virginia Jarrell (CS 406).

Other notes:
Pending approval from EGSA members, the EGSA Council would like to expand to include two “at-large” members. These new members

would ensure that all grad students (M.A., Ph.D., RAs, GAs, and TAs) have a voice on the council.
