On Tuesday, April 22 from 4-5:30 pm in room 140 of Behavioral Sciences Building (BSB) the GEO is holding a general membership meeting to review the year’s activities and elect our new Steering Committee. The GMM is open to all members; the elections are open to card-signing members.

The Steering Committee is a member-run governing body of the GEO that helps to oversee other committees, plan and run events, and make decisions for the everyday functioning of the union. The list of Steering Committee officers is as follows:
Two Co-Presidents
Treasurer
Secretary
Grievance Chair
Communications Chair
Outreach Chair
Organizing Chair
Chief Steward
Bargaining Chair (At Large Officer)

For a description of each position, check out our constitution: http://uic-geo.net/mainsite/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/100416_GEO_Constitution_Revised1.pdf

To nominate yourself, please send an e-mail with a short biography and the position you’re running for to the Elections Committee at elections@uic-geo.net by Friday, April 18th in order to appear on the paper ballot. Nominations will also be accepted on the floor of the meeting as write-in candidates.

Additional voting will be held on Wednesday from 1-4 pm and Thursday from 9-2 in the GEO office (815 W. Van Buren Suite 203—enter on Halsted). Due to the impending United Faculty strike and possible SEIU strike, the additional voting locations have been moved off campus in solidarity with them. Vote!

Once the elections are over, please join your fellow members for the GEO End of Semester Social at Dugan’s on Halsted (128 S. Halsted) on Thursday, April 24th from 6-8 pm. All members are welcome.
