SSDP General Lunch Meeting & Upcoming Elections

To all SSDP members, specifically 1Ls:

We have scheduled a general body meeting for February 18, 2016 during the lunch hour in Room 170.

Firstly, there will be free food from Ali Babas Grill.

The primary purpose of this meeting will be to provide the general body members an opportunity to discuss Board elections for the upcoming academic year. We may have up to 5 positions on the Executive Board opening up for next year.

Anyone interested in running for a Board position should type up a 1-2 paragraph statement of intent for the current board to read over. This statement should have some background information about yourself and some information as to why you want to be on the Executive Board of SSDP. You do not have to specify which position you would like to run for because the Board has not yet discussed which positions will be open.

If you are interested in running for a Board Position you should also consider applying for a 1L Board position for the remainder of this semester and year (see below for details).

We have great events coming up this semester, including our biggest event, a symposium focusing on the current state of Colorado’s recreational and medical marijuana laws, currently pending CLE credits. The current board will need help organizing some of these events and so we would like to appoint a few 1L Board Members (looks good on your resumes). We will be discussing the 1L Board positions and the upcoming events that have been scheduled at the lunch meeting as well.

Hopefully we will see many of you at the meeting!
