The conference itself is approaching in a few months, so do expect an

everything concerning you and Flourish, and hopefully something could
get smoothed out by conference time.

SOPA Awareness

Welcome Back, Meeting this Thursday

Welcome back for the spring semester, we will be having an ACM Special Event this Thursday, 01/12/2012. We will bring forth our SIG leaders and have them talk about their projects and what they'll be doing this semester. In addition to that, we will have a networking event after the presentations.

Food and drink will be provided.

Location: SEO 1000

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM.

After the networking portion of the meeting we will be handling some ACM business. The ACM needs a new secretary to finish up the Fall 2011/Spring
2012 term. The current secretary, Allie, will no longer be at UIC this
semester so we are going to hold an election during the business portion
of the Thursday meeting mentioned earlier. The duties of the ACM secretary
are detailed in the ACM bylaws, http://acm.cs.uic.edu/bylaws, and can be
summarized as such:
- Keep meeting minutes
- Sending out certain notification
- Participating in general ACM business and decisions
Anyone interested in running for the position will be required to go to
the meeting and state their intent to run. After that there will be a
popular vote will be taken amongst the members present than the Executive
Council will elect the new secretary. The only requirement for running is
being a paid ACM member, which can be taken care of at the meeting or in
the immediate future.
