Student members are also eligible:

  • To hold any appointive position in the Society
  • To vote for officers, councilors, members of the nominating committee
  • To vote on all matters requiring a vote which come before the Society as a whole
  • To be members of constituent units of the Society
  • To receive the benefits of the Society's programs and services.
