Welcome to the ACLU at DCSL yahoo Group and thank you very much for taking an interest in our organization. We will be holding our first organizational meeting on Wednesday, August 26, in room 202 from 12:30 PM until 1:30 PM. During this meeting we will discuss the upcoming D.C. Statehood event on September 9th, the organization bylaws, membership requirements, and any other housekeeping items as necessary. Also, we will be holding officer elections at this time (see below for brief position descriptions). If you would like to run for a particular position but will be unable to attend the meeting, please email me (ajweaver83@...
) with your name, position desired, and an extremely brief (5 sentences, no run-ons) statement on why you would be a good choice for the position and I will nominate you at the meeting.
That's about it folks. Please feel free to email me with any questions or thoughts and I look forward to seeing you all at the meeting. Best regards, and please do enjoy your first weekend of the semester. It may be the only one that you do.
