Just a heads up, Biochemistry Club will be having an ice cream social this Wednesday, Sept 26th, at 7:15p on the Robinson Quad and you’re all invited to join! Come out, grab some ice cream, and meet your fellow science majors!
Additionally, the next NEURONS meeting is THIS THURSDAY as always, in International Village 022 7:30pm. One of our vice-presidents, Facundo Gonzalez will be presenting on the Neuroscience of Optical Illusions.
Hope to see you all there!
With a few recent changes taking place in the structure of the new neurons eboard, we now have an open position for a Marketing/Media Officer.
Officer duties will include:
-Design/execution banner in CSC
-Management of clothing sale/design
-Backup PR (ensuring all announcements go out on time, filling in when PR officer is unable to)
-Assistance with activities/events planning/Brain Awareness Week planning
-Participation in the NEURONS peer mentoring program
-Contribution to NEURONS website/blog
Keep in mind (as with all officers): these duties for each position are a logical starting point, but by no means exhaustive. Other duties, general and contextual, may be assigned in the future.
The Election Process
-Candidacy will be limited to returning NEURONS members only (sorry freshmen).
-Candidates will be given ~5min each at the beginning of the next meeting (9/27) to make a short speech/pitch
-This time can be used however the candidate chooses, whether it is only a speech, or sharing of media/design examples (should media/design examples want to be shared, we ask that they be sent to us at least 24hrs in advance so they can all be condensed into one powerpoint presentation to save time)
-Officer will be elected by private show of hands by returning NEURONS members, votes will be counted by an objective non-member party, current e-board members may vote.
