SFS Constitutional Revisions (2013)

Proposed Revision to By-Laws

Changing the Name of the Society for Freshwater Science’s Graduate Resources Committee (GRC) to the Student Resources Committee (SRC), and establishing a SRC subcommittee for Undergraduate Student Awards.

Rationale

Undergraduate students are becoming increasingly involved in the Society. This name change makes the Society’s student committee more inclusive of undergraduate students. The establishment of the Undergraduate Student Awards subcommittee as one of the six subcommittees of the Student Resources Committee formalizes currently-existing pilot projects in which graduate students select undergraduate travel award recipients and coordinate judging of undergraduate posters/presentations.

The ExCom and Board have expressed their approval for this change.

Respectfully submitted,

SFS Constitutional Revision Committee
Steve Francoeur, co-Chair
Fred Benfield, co-Chair
