If you are interested in any of these positions, the Student Caucus Executive Committee encourages you to "throw your hat in" and nominate yourself! We will be accepting nominations starting now and continuing through the Student Caucus Business Meeting at the 13th Annual Convention in Toronto. In order to serve as an Executive Committee officer, nominees must be student affiliates of APS, have graduate student status, and be enrolled in school for at least one semester during their terms of office. To nominate yourself, or another student affiliate, please contact the APS Student Caucus President, Kymberley K. Bennett, at kym@unr.nevada.edu. Correspondence can also be sent to:

Because the Executive Committee elections take place at the Student Caucus Business Meeting, if you would like to nominate yourself, or another student affiliate, please plan to attend the Convention in Toronto. During the Business Meeting, nominees will be given a few minutes to state their experiences and ideas for their respective offices, and elections will immediately follow.

Even if you do not plan to run for an office on the Executive Committee, the Student Caucus would like to invite you to attend our Business Meeting. Not only will you be able to learn about our activities and programs, you will be given the opportunity to vote for student affiliates who will represent you on the 2001-2002 Executive Committee. We hope to see you there!
