The BLN and BLNSA steering committee members have decided that a separate student auxiliary is no longer the best way to encourage networking and community for all BLN members. At the request of the outgoing BLNSA officers (John Ross and Katie Conner), we are retiring BLNSA and folding its membership into the larger BLN organization.

To make sure that graduate voices continue to be heard and that we continue to sponsor exciting events for graduate students across campus, we are expanding from one to two seats for graduate students on the Steering Committee. Elections will be held in Fall 2022; consider nominating yourself or someone else for a position.

From the entire BLN membership, we send heartfelt thanks to the student leaders and faculty advisors who helped keep BLNSA running during its existence!
