Caucus meeting this Friday (3:30pm-4:30pm)

Hello everyone,

Reminder that there is a caucus meeting this Friday (3:30-4:30pm) in the Grad Lounge (7000 level Biology).

The agenda is attached; highlights are the Travel Awards draw (yay!), as well as planning regarding next spring's Grad Symposium.

Also, positions have recently opened up for caucus Treasurer and Secretary. So far we have one nomination for Treasurer... let us know if you are interested in either. Both are a great way of getting involved in the department, and getting to know your fellow grad students. Also looks great on a CV! Details regarding the respective duties of each follow.
