Dear Student Group Leaders,

Please take note of the following announcements:

(1) ASA General Body Meeting (3/21/2018)
(2) ASA Office Hours
(3) LEF-ARCADE Spring Cycle Deadline Reminder (3/16/2018)



This is an announcement that the Spring General Body Meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 21st in room 34-101. Please arrive by 5:10pm so we can complete check-in’s and start on time. Every student group is required to send a representative, with the exception of individual FSILGs, graduate dorms, and club sports; those groups’ governance groups must still attend. Groups that do not send a representative will incur a $50 fine and may be suspended or de-recognized if the group has repeatedly missed GBMs. Dinner will be served.

Any member may check in for a group, and a member may check in for more than one group. However, only students listed as president, treasurer, group admin, or GBM proxy in the group's ASA Database entry may exercise the group's vote. Furthermore, nobody may exercise the vote of more than one group, and each group has only one vote even if they send multiple representatives.

Please make sure to designate a GBM proxy in the Database prior to the GBM if you do not expect a President, Treasurer, or Group Admin to be present at the meeting.

The agenda is:

Updates from the Board
Information Regarding Space
EHS Walkthrough on Patriot’s Day
Elections for the ASA Executive Board
Positions up for Election:
Undergraduate-Members-at-Large (2)
Graduate-Members-at-Large (2)
Student Member-at-Large

Please come to the GBM if you intend on running for a position or if you have questions about what each of the positions entail. More information on the ASA Election process can be found at <http://web.mit.edu/asa/about/elections.html <http://web.mit.edu/asa/about/elections.html>>.
