Committee chair and Banquet chair Applications
The application for committee and banquet chairs is here (Just save the Microsoft Document file to your computer).The committee chairs are as follows: Advertising, Community Service, Social, Culture, Fundraising, Webmaster, and Historical. We encourage all interested to apply as we really need the help of our members for ASA's continued success.

A detailed description of what each committee chair will be responsible for in their committee can be viewed here and downloaded here. Please read the descriptions carefully before you apply. You can either print the application and bring it to the next meeting or send it to Erika through email. Next week Monday 11/24/03 will be the deadline. These committee chairs will take an effect next semester, but the officers need to meet with the chairs to prepare you for next semester. Please get involved with ASA and make a real contribution!!

P.S: Although the banquet chair is not an official standing chair we are adding this chair to the list. It is an equally if not more important chair than the others because of its planning and duties. The banquet chair's description has stars next to it at the bottom of the description document.
