Hello ELEPS members!
Here we are with about a month left in the school year, and that means it’s time for elections, and also time for our annual Advanced Directives Day event in which we encourage our fellow students to execute Powers of Attorney for Health Care.
The first order of business is elections. ELEPS has four officers: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer. If you are interested in serving as an officer for the 2012-2013 schoolyear, please let us know by sending an email to the outgoing President, Jeff Nover, by the end of this week. If there is sufficient interest, we will hold elections via online voting next week.
The second order of business is Advanced Directives Day, which we will hold on Thursday, April 26, 2012!
As most of you know, having a Power of Attorney for Health Care is a very important thing, as it ensures that your wishes for your health care will be followed if you are incapable of communicating those wishes. Every year around this time, we sit in the atrium and encourage our fellow students to pick up the statutory PoA form, provide information about the form and Powers of Attorney for Health Care in general, and if they want to execute them there, we are available as witnesses.
If you’d like to participate in Advanced Directives Day, please let us know when you are available by answering this Doodle Poll. We greatly appreciate any amount of help. Please check Yes for any time you WILL come to the table.
After we are done in the Atrium, we’ll head over to the Memorial Union Rathskeller for an Advanced Directives Day celebration, and to welcome to our newly-elected officers!
