This is how a chapter meeting is arranged. Today there were close to no competion in between the apllicants why the time in between different posts was generally short. This depends a lot from different chapter meetings. We want to encourage everyone to join a chapter meeting some time and also maybe to apply for a post. It is a good experience, a way to find new friends and also the best way to affect the chapter.
We also want to say that the final desicions are to be find at the meeting protocol that will be put up at Canvas. There can be errors in the text above (please contact the editorial if you find an error!).
Thank you for today, and good night!
