A-3 ASSEMBLY

New Board, New Constitution

The A-3 Assembly is happy to announce the election of new 1999-2000 officers to its Executive Board. They are:

Chair: Debra Smiley Koita (Career Services)

Vice Chair: John Hogan (Biddle Law Library)

Secretary: Louise Alexander (GSE)

Treasurer: Keith Martin (CGS)

Due to many resignations from the Board for various reasons, the A-3 Assembly did not hold elections for general board membership this past

Spring. However, there was a "call for nominations" that yielded three nominees who met the eligibility requirements.

The remaining Board members used this time to amend their Constitution since a number of rules in it were inappropriate and unsuitable for the organization. An amendment that would be of interest is in Article II, Section A, Number 4 in which it states " ....where the 'call for nominations' do not yield enough nominees to fill all the vacant Board membership positions, the nominees that have been nominated will automatically be declared elected to the Board as unopposed candidates, providing they meet all the other eligibility requirements," thus allowing the current Board members to bring aboard the nominees who accepted their nominations. The new Board members are:

Lia LaVassaur (Center for Professional Development)

Regina Cantave (Information Systems and Computing)

Christine Davies (Academic Support Programs)

The A-3 Assembly will hold a general meeting in November announcing its agenda and goals for the coming year. A date and site will be announced in a future Almanac.
