BGSS 2016-2017 Elections

Hello Everyone,

BGSS is announcing our annual elections! What is BGSS? We are a group of biochemistry graduate students that get together to put on great events such as our annual Research Day, Holiday Happy Hour, CandyGrams, SkillSets, Summer BBQ and various other events. Did you enjoy these events and want to get involved or have an idea for a new event? We would love for you to join us!

How do you get involved? We are holding elections for all of our positions. We have 2 spots available for each of our executive positions, including President (x2), VP Finance (x2), VP Communications (x2) and PGSS Representatives (x2). If an executive position doesn’t appeal to you, we are always looking for more Student Life Representatives; these are our non-executive members who attend monthly meetings and help with our events but don’t have set responsibilities. You can read all about us and these positions in our constitution.

Our election period will be from June 1st to June 15th 2016. If you are interested in joining us simply e-mail our chief returning officer at indicating which position you would like to be nominated for. We will send more information about the elections process in a follow-up email. At the end of the election period you will be contacted by the chief returning officer to organize a meeting with both the outgoing council and new members during the first week of July. This meeting will ratify the new council and begin our planning for the 2016 Summer BBQ!

We look forward to hearing from you!
