The Grad Class Annual General Meeting (AGM) is coming up fast and here’s what you need to know (besides free pizza!):

Who: Any UVic undergrad graduating in 2019 (this includes folks graduating in November!)
What: Party-planning! And other important things!
When: Wednesday, November 21 @ 2:30pm
Where: SUB Upper Lounge Boardroom
Why: Our Grad Class Bylaws are in serious need of modernization! They haven’t been updated in over a decade…and it shows. We need 25 graduating students to attend the AGM to help us make these much needed amendments and elect a Grad Class Executive (aka the party planners).

Getting involved in your Grad Class Exec is a great way to help shape your grad year and plan great events with the support of the UVSS Board and staff! It also looks great on a résumé!

Oh, and did we mention? As a member of the Grad Class Exec, you also get a say in how the Grad Class Legacy Fund is spent this year! Past projects include: Updating the equipment in the Food Bank and Free Store and the giant communal tables that you love in the SUB!
