GSSC Still Needs An Election Commission Chair

Bwog’s resident Old Fart and Yung GeriatricAndrew Chee was astonished by the efficacy of last night’s twenty-minute meeting! General Studies Student Council meets every Tuesday at 8:15 pm in the Jed Satow Room on the fifth floor of Lerner. 

Due to inclement weather, Dean Rosen-Metsch was unable to make it to GSSC tonight, but fear not! She will make a return on February 26th, so don’t miss out!

Elections Commissions Appointment Committee

The Elections Commissions Appointment Committee (ECAC) is still accepting applications for the election commission chair. The purpose is to ensure that the elections committee is as removed from GSSC as possible while also maintaining accountability. As such, the election committee chair cannot run for or be on GSSC at the same time. The election committee chair will select two to three people to come to the council meeting to advocate for the qualifications of their election committee chair; the council will vote and when the person is appointed, they will nominate two to three people (who will be confirmed by the council) who will be a part of their committee. ECAC will have full autonomy over elections, including the dates, the appeals process for rules, the meetings for interested candidates, the posting of platforms, and all aspects of voting.

Applications, which can be found in your email, will close on Friday.
