The July Executive Board meeting was busy and productive. Here are some important outcomes:
New Website Address Approved
When GSOLE was first founded in 2016, the most logical domain name, <gsole.org>, was not available. Now it is! The board approved the acquisition of this domain, which will house a refurbished website including fuller member services. The migration will take place early in August 2020.
New Individual Membership Rates Approved
The board approved a new fee schedule for annual individual memberships, which includes reduced rates. Here’s I the new fee schedule:
- Student/Contingent Members: $20
- Regular Members (pre-tenure or full-time non-tenured faculty and administrators): $30
- Sustaining Members (tenured faculty and executive-level administrators: $50
