ACES/SACES Call for Graduate Student RepresentativeEach of the five ACES regions nominates one student to serve as the ACES Graduate Student Representative (GSR). From these five nominations, the ACES Governing Council will choose one student to serve in this position. This is a three year service position: designee, current, and past GSR. The GSR must be available to attend the ACES Governing Council Meeting June 2020 in Salt Lake City, Utah and commit to attending all Governing Council meetings for his or her term.

SACES will select a GSR nominee and an alternate. In the event that the SACES nominee is selected to serve as ACES GSR, the alternate will be appointed to the SACES Board for 2020-2021. In the event that the SACES nominee is not selected to serve as ACES GSR, the nominee will be appointed to the SACES Board for 2020-2021.
