PENULTIMATE MEETING! (Elections)

Isn’t penultimate a great word? Think about it.

At our next meeting on Tuesday, Dec 6th, we will be holding elections for the following positions on the Executive Board for Spring 2012.  Anyone is welcome to run for a position, so you should just DO IT! Simply email aotto@skidmore.edu and let her know that you are interested in running so we can put you on the ballot for Tuesday’s meeting.  Come prepared to say a little something about yourself and why you are qualified for this position (even though we know you all are, of course).

President/Co-President: Responsible for planning and running weekly meetings, and for heading any activism committees.  Also responsible for overseeing the magazine release in the spring.

Vice President: Helps to prepare events and meetings, and creates the baby cub

Secretary: Takes notes during meetings, does organizational things for the club, and THE BLOGGER!!

Treasurer: deals with tha fund$

At the beginning of the Spring semester there will be new elections for Art Editor, Literary Editor, and Layout Design, so if you are more interested in heading the magazine then these are the positions for you :)

In the meanwhile, you should all go to the Tang from 12-6 pm on Thursday, Dec 1st (OH WAIT, that’s today!! quick, RUN! …it’s never too late…) to see Untitled, a film created by Jim Hodges, Carlos Marques da Cruz and Encke King.  It is a montage that recalls the passionate activism that began in the early years of the AIDS crisis.  Many museums and arts organizations across the country will be showing this video today, so don’t miss out!

You should also procrastinate learn some more and read this article from the New York Times called, Teaching Good Sex. It follows Al Vernacchio, a high school teacher at Friends’ Central school in Philadelphia, who has a class called Sexuality and Society in which they discuss topics like how to recognize and form your own values, sexual orientation, safer sex, relationships, sexual health, and the emotional and physical terrain of sexual activity.  After reading the article all I could think was, “this is the kind of sex education I want my kids to have.” I felt like that crazy person who is always talking about her not yet born kids, but am I right?  Abstinence based sex education is worthless.
