Hey everyone, I hope the beginning of the week has been going well so far! I just wanted to send out an update from today’s general membership meeting in case you couldn’t make it. So the semester will be coming to an end in several weeks, which means ASU CORE Elections are coming up!! This is an exciting time for everyone, and we would love to see members run for Core. Here are the positions you can run for:

Co-Chairs (2)
Membership Coordinator
Internship Coordinators (2)
Historian
Treasurer
Marketing
Activities Coordinator
External Public Relations Coordinator
Internal Public Relations Coordinator

If you go under “Discussions” in the Asian Student Union group, you will find “Asian Student Union Constitution”. There, you will find more detailed descriptions as to what each coordinator does. If you’re interested, please do the following:

1) We want to get to know who you are amongst other things, so please…
– typed 1 page biography
– what position you plan on running for
– Name, major, year (that you will be during 2010-2011 school year)
– Personal information (birthday, hobbies, etc.)

3) Interview: I will go more in-depth with this as elections come closer.

That’s about it for now, if anything else comes up I’ll be sure to let you know at the membership meeting. Feel free to contact me via Facebook or e-mail me at mvu@sfsu.edu. Good luck everyone πŸ™‚
