CSSR Executive looking for a new Treasurer beginning June 2014

Colleagues,

The CSSR executive is looking to find a replacement for the position of treasurer beginning June 2014. The term is three years, and although the position might seem intimidating, as it deals with numbers, Richard Mann (our current Treasurer) assures me it is not. Furthermore, having served as treasurer for the CWSA for 3 years, I concur with Richard. What the position takes is regular oversight.

Folks interested should email the CSSR Past President, Dr. Darlene Juschka
