Question: How competitive is the application process and when do applications normally go out? - Anonymous
There is no application to be a general body member. If you are interested in being more involved and having a leadership role within the club, we will be discussing this more at our GBM next Tuesday. In regards to selection into one of our committees, it truly depends on how many people are interested, which varies per year.

Question: If we were members last year, when will we receive an email about continuing this semester? Do we need to apply again? - Anonymous
Hi! Thanks for reaching out! Nope if you've gotten emails from us in the past you should be all set. We'll be sending out an email after SAC fair today, so if you don't get that definitely let us know!
