DION is hosting its annual general meeting with election of the new board for 2014-2015. All board positions are up for election, which means that a president and at least four board members will be elected. Candidates for board positions can be announced by e-mail to email@example.com, or directly at the meeting. We encourage all interested PhD candidates and post docs to consider joining the board. A board position on DION can be credited as up to one month of duty work, or one month extension of the PhD project period (Forskrift om stipendiater ved NTNU, §2).
We will kick off the evening with a mini course on presentation techniques by Åsmund Berstad from SiT (Studentsamskipnaden I Trondheim).
Light food will be served at the meeting.

Location: Studenttinget’s meeting room, Stripa in SentralbyggetDION board meetings are open to all interested parties. We invite you to attend, to get a better opportunity to influence your work conditions and the NTNU PhD system.
You should all have received an e-mail from the NTNU administration containing a link to the Work Environment Survey (Arbeidsmiljøundesøkelsen). This is NTNU’s “temperature reading” of how the employees are doing at work. In the last survey, which was completed in 2012, the participation of the temporary scientific staff was very low.
Survey participation is voluntary, but DION encourages all temporary employees to respond to the study. This is your opportunity to tell about how you feel at work, what you are happy with and what needs to be changed. The survey is important to our work in DION as well as to NTNU.
Do not miss this opportunity to influence your work environment, and help DION in our work for you!
