Hi friends,

It’s a new term, and FemPhys is looking for new exec members!  Anyone who
is interested in devoting a bit of time to helping FemPhys run smoothly,
put on awesome events, build community, and further feminism in physics
(and related fields) is welcome to join exec! You don’t have to commit much
time, nor do you have to be a femme in physics to contribute.

We have a range of different roles available. Check out the role
descriptions at the end of this email and tell us if you’re interested by
filling out this short, sweet survey
(Roles can be shared, so let us know what you're interested in, and we'll
work out the rest!)

If you're free, *join us at our first exec meeting*: this *Wednesday,
September 27 from 5-6pm *in* Phys 104*!  If you can't make it, but are
still interested in contributing to FemPhys, send us an email and fill out
the survey.  We will be finalizing the roles for the upcoming term at our
first meeting, and can renegotiate the meeting time if necessary.

Take care,
<3 FemPhys
