Dear Student Group Officers,

Please take note of the following announcements:

1. ASA General Body Meeting + Special Elections: Thu, Feb 18, 7:30 pm
- 9 pm in 32-123

The spring ASA GBM will be held on Thursday, February 18, from 7:30 to
9 pm in 32-123.  Check-in and snacks will begin at 7 pm.  All
ASA-recognized groups are required to send a representative unless
otherwise specified.

The main topic for the meeting will be a special election to elect two
new members of the ASA.

As per the ASA operating guidelines, following the resignations of two
members of the ASA boards, Keone Hon '11 (formerly ASA Treasurer)
assumed the role of ASA President.  Vacancies in the positions of ASA
Treasurer and ASA Secretary are currently being filled by ASA board
members Nicole Teague '11 (currently Undergraduate Member-at-Large)
and Rebecca Krentz-Wee '12 (currently UA Representative to ASA), who
were appointed by the president as specified by the operating
guidelines.  These three changes have been ratified by the ASA Executive
Board; they must now be confirmed by the General Body in
order to take permanent effect.

Following the confirmation discussion and vote, the General Body will
elect 1-3 (depending on the outcome of the confirmations)
members to positions on the ASA Board.  Student leaders who are
interested in running should be present at the meeting and should be
prepared to put themselves forward.  Due to uncertainty in which
positions are open, candidates will be asked to deliver a strictly
oral platform; no visuals should be prepared.

2. Cleaning out shared storage rooms (W20-437, W20-441)

Any property not on a shelf or inside a locker in W20-437 and W20-441
must be removed by Tuesday 2/16.  If any group believes it has been
allocated space not on a shelf or inside a locker, it should tag its
property and send us an email to asa-office at mit.edu describing their
space (with links to photos).

Any untagged property remaining on the floor after Tuesday 2/16 will
disposed of at the discretion of the ASA Executive Board.

3. New Group Recognition Deadline is Fri, February 12.

As noted on http://web.mit.edu/asa/about/meeting-schedule.html, the
deadline for groups to submit applications for this recognition cycle
is next Friday, February 12, at 11:59 pm.  Prospective group founders
should refer to http://web.mit.edu/asa/start/index.html for more
information and an application.

Best of luck with the start of classes.
