Notice of Special Election for Treasurer

Our current treasurer, Tara Baldrick-Morrone, is stepping back from her duties to focus on her dissertation. While we are deeply saddened by this decision, we stand in full support of it, and of her. She has been an invaluable leader in our community.

GAU Treasurer is an elected position and term will run through April 14, 2017. In accordance with our bylaws, we are announcing a General Membership Meeting, during which we will take nominations for her replacement. All GAU members are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Pre-Bargaining Caucus

We’ll be hosting two pre-bargaining caucuses to inform our members of our plans for the 2016-2017 bargaining session, as well as to seek their input on our priorities during negotiations. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the bargaining process and to have your voice heard. Though your EC works diligently to ensure that we serve the interests of GAs from all across campus, it is with your input and participation that we can best meet that goal.

Our caucuses will meet in WMS 013, which is located on the ground floor of the Williams building and is best accessed from Jefferson St. Food will be provided. Both caucuses will start at 6:00 pm, one on Wednesday, February 17, and one on Thursday, February 18. For more information, please email us at
