It's not too late to join a committee! Remember, if you are interested in running for a board position next year, being a member of a committee will greatly help you understand what it's to be on the board. It is also a fantastic way to meet other members, and earn points! 


Thank you for filling out GBM 1 feedback. We are going to have UIC College of Medicine students for our med student panel at our second GBM.
