You will have received a notice from ISA requesting that you vote for an amendment to the constitution that would substantially increase the number of members needed to approve a new section. The GSCIS executive met in both Toronto and New Orleans to discuss the issue of moving to a section. The move will allow us to support more panels at meetings, among other benefits. This year, after further consultation, we decided that we wanted to maintain the caucus for networking purposes IN ADDITION to asking for a section – similar to the women’s caucus/FTGS arrangement. We are still discussing this and will update you via the blog. In the meantime, the call for a constitutional amendment has caught us off guard. We ask you to please vote DOWN the constitutional amendment as this would make it more difficult for us to form a section.
