STUDENT BAR ASSOCIATION
I am proud to announce that the SBA Board of Governors unanimously voted in a new student organization! Congratulations to POLSKA WOLA, an organization established to address issues of interest to the Polish legal community. If you are interested in joining this new organization, please contact John DiJohn (JDIJOHN) as soon as possible.
Fall 1998 Budget Request Packets...
The first SBA Social will take place on Thursday, September 24, 1998, at the Cactus Bar, 404 South Wells (Wells & Van Buren), from 8pm-12pm. Please bring your Chicago-Kent I.D. cards (you will not be admitted without it!). We will provide free beer, wine and soft drinks. Please join us for what should be a great evening!
Campaigning begins for the SBA Fall Elections on September 10, 1998. There will be no campaigning prior to that date. Please submit your candidate statement and completed petition by September 8, 1998, at 8:00pm. Actual voting dates will take place on September 23 and 24 on the third floor mezzanine. If you have not picked up your petition, please stop by the SBA office (petitions are available outside the door of C88).
New SBA AD HOC Committee Established
Another purpose of the Complaints and Concerns Committee is to direct people to the resources available for resolving their problems. We also hope to go beyond the information and resources available through the Student Handbook to address problems that arise BECAUSE of those resources, or because of the absence of resources available here.
If you have a complaint or concern, or just want more information, please feel free to e-mail Andrea Laiacona (ALAIACON) or drop a note outside the SBA office (C88). Anonymity is fine, and confidentiality is assured. We look forward to hearing from you.
