Officer Elections GMM

The officer election GMM (Facebook event here) is this coming Thursday, April 26th, at 6:30pm in the Channing-Murray Foundation (1209 W Oregon St, Urbana). We will start with a short presentation on the election procedure, and a quick overview of the Janus v. AFSCME supreme court case that could affect the fate of all public sector unions in the coming year. Declared candidates for officer positions in GEO will then make short statements on their platforms. Nominations will also be taken from the floor. Each candidate’s statement will be followed by a question and answer session to allow the members in attendance to know more about their qualifications and personality. Please make sure to attend this last and very important GMM for this year!

Voting Information

Ballots will be available to cast at the Election GMM. For those who either cannot attend or would like more time to deliberate, you can cast your vote from 9am to 5pm at the GEO office in the Geneva Room of the McKinley Foundation (809 S. 5th St.) on Friday, April 27th, and Monday, April 30th. Notes from the Election GMM will be made available to the membership by 8:30am on Friday, April 27th.
