OOW Council has decided to add an OOW Referendum for your consideration on the Spring ASA ballot. You may vote Yes or No.
If passed, the Referendum would change our existing practice of selecting our Student Council member. We currently appoint the Thompson best paper awardee to the position of Student Council member. Those members have served us well. However, this practice precludes us from recruiting and selecting from some of the other very active and able students interested in serving the Section. If passed, the Referendum would change the practice to electing one of two Students running for this position. As another policy matter, the Council will set up – on a trial basis – a larger Student Affairs committee to help lead the Section’s efforts of serving the graduate student community, student involvement in Section activities, and increasing student recruitment.
