Board Elections

May 6, 2011

Food Law Society is seeking new board members.

If you've enjoyed any of the Food Law events this quarter - drinking artisanal wine from Italy, learning about the food recall system, or hearing from Bill Marler about food safety and the Food Modernization Act - consider running for the board.

There are tons of topics to cover next year, from organic labeling to GMOs. There's also more wine to drink, brewery tours to take, and local cafes and restaurants to bring to the law school.

All positions are open: President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, and (2) Program Directors.

Interested students (and members of the community) should email FLS with their name, class and position sought by May 9.
