FSPA now accepting nominations for officers

If you are a graduate student or postdoc at Fermilab, here’s an opportunity to boost your leadership skills and to add a meaningful line to your CV.

The Fermilab Student and Postdoc Association is currently accepting nominations for officers for the 2013-14 term. Nominations will be accepted through Monday, Sept. 30.

FSPA officers organize social events, communicate with students and postdocs at other laboratories, participate in monthly Users Executive Committee meetings as well as the annual users trip to Washington, D.C., and organize the annual New Perspectives conference and poster session.

To get a taste of what FSPA is about, students and postdocs are welcome to attend the first Fermilab Duathlon on Saturday, Sept. 28, beginning at 8:30 a.m. in the AZero parking lot. The duathlon is composed of four bicycle laps and one run around the Main Ring. The top two participants in each category will receive prizes. Registration is free and open to individuals and teams of two people.

FSPA officer nominations should be emailed to fspa_officers@fnal.gov. Self-nominations should include a photo and some information about why you’d like to join the FSPA leadership. If nominating someone other than yourself, be sure to include the individual’s contact information.
