The national AMSA is having a competition for anyone who joined AMSA in
the last two years. IF YOU ACTIVATE YOUR MBNA CREDIT CARD, YOU WILL BE PUT
IN A LOTTERY TO WIN ONE OF TWO $5,000 SCHOLARSHIPS!!! Okay, enough my Ed
McMahon side coming through...
I guess my attachment did not go through yesterday. So, I will include
it in the text of this message. Please contact me with questions,
All co-chairs work together to check in with the various projects, see
what the project needs are, work with the project coordinators to assist
them in achieving their goals, and may coordinate projects themselves.
Second Year Co-Chairs
--Help orient first-years to AMSA and what we have done and are planning
--One will serve as a representative to the National AMSA office.
--One will serve as a representative to the other student groups on campus
to see what other groups are doing, how we can collaborate, and making sure
that we are not repeating projects.
--Help out as needed with fundraising.
First Year Co-Chairs
--Help coordinate projects and check in with project coordinators. For
example, one co-chair could be in charge of making the journal club happens
after a lecture is organized or could help organize a lecture.
--Both will be active in fundraising, including thinking of methods to
fundraise and working with the treasurer in dealing with the finances.
--One will take minutes at each meeting and send out a report to the list
serve ([log in to unmask]) afterwards.
--Takes charge of bank account.
--Deposits checks and writes checks to those who have spent money.
--Makes sure that we are registered as a University group.
--These positions are VERY flexible; they are based on what people are
interested in doing.
--Currently, we have Aaron Rutzick heading up a branch of the “No Free
Lunch” pharm initiative (check out the website at www.nofreelunch.org), and
Quy Ton working with global health and human rights.
--We also hope to do something for World AIDS Day as part of a coalition of
many campus groups. We are looking for somebody (or two somebodys!) to
coordinate this project.
