Please submit all nominations via email to Katrina at with the subject line "AABANY GSPI Committee Chair Nomination" by Thursday, February 19.  We will then email all of the nominees letting them know that they have been nominated.  

All candidates who would like become a part of next year's Committee Leadership must: (1) attend this upcoming GSPI Committee meeting; and (2) say a few words at the meeting about why they would like to be a co-chair and what their ideas for the role entail, including thoughts about the upcoming year's programming agenda.
