Next Meeting and Elections...

(from the secretary)

The first thing that should be mentioned is that there will be no Latin Club meeting for this month considering how late in the month it now is. We will however be represented in the upcoming GMCHE conference and I am told that various things such as our scrapbook and awards will be put on display.

In addition to this, the next meeting to be held will be on the 25th of May at the Van Hecke's from 6:30-8:00 pm. This will be the last meeting of the year and elections will be held. For all those interested in running, take a look at the bylaws which explain the election proceedures.
