Some of the topics that will be examined during this event are the Vietnamese refugee experience, the fallout that resulted because of the war, and the birth of the Vietnamese-American identity.

Administrative Coordinator

Ashley Hanson

Confidence: 3, No Confidence: 16 = 15.8% – NOT ELECTED

Congratulations to those elected! Candidates have one week to formally accept. Elected candidates will receive a follow-up notice from the current President. If any position is not accepted, positions will be reopened for election.

Reminder: Application for Round 2, non-executive board positions, will be due Friday, May 9, 2014 (Week 6) by 5pm. We will continue with elections hearing Wednesday Week 7.
