Karen-When I was in my grad school activist days, our Graduate Student
Council (which wasn't an official student governance organization at the
time) was part of NAGPS.  I thought they were a good group.  I went to two
of their national meetings and came home with lots of ideas to shake
things up.  I should add that this was 6 years ago, and I haven't had time
to keep up with them since.

Curiously, with all of the colleges, universities, and research facilities
here in town, Greensboro does not have a chapter of AWIS.  There is one in
Winston-Salem, in which a friend of mine is active.  I tend to be too much
of a joiner, so it's probably a good thing there isn't one in town.  

Not as paranoid as I should be,
