themselves. Come and have a look, ask about printing prices, compare thesis
layouts and covers!

General Members Meeting - Wednesday, January 30th, 17:00, Carré 2G

Our annual General Members Meeting (GMM) is planned for Wednesday, January 30th. During this GMM, we will first present our annual report, detailing the activities of 2012 and our plans and budget for 2013. Also, new board members will be elected. By participating in this GMM,  our members have the opportunity to have their say in P-NUT policy: who do think should represent you, and what do you think we should put on our agenda?
So, all join for the General Members Meeting.

Three board positions are open for election during the GMM: President, Secretary, and Treasurer. The P-NUT board will select and support a single candidate for each position. Members can also nominate themselves. Following our statutes, this requires them to send the President of P-NUT ( an e-mail stating the candidacy, the desired position, and a letter of motivation, as well as a list of signatures of at least 10 P-NUT members supporting the candidacy. The strict deadline for providing this information is January 21, 12:00 hours.

The agenda and a list of candidate board members will be made available to P-NUT members on January 22.

Date: Wednesday, January 30th
Time: 17:00 - 18:00
Venue: Carré 2G
