To continue our get-out-the-vote from abroad, we are currently building a robust Paris Chapter and, for the first time, doing a call for applications for expansion of the executive committee. Our goal is to have an inclusive, transparent, and fair appointment process. We need you to be a part of our work!

All members of the Paris Chapter are encouraged to apply. Applications will be accepted through 11:59 p.m. CET on November 1, 2021. Decisions will be made around Nov. 10th.
