The 51st General Meeting of CUPARUC was held on Thursday, April 25 at the Loyola campus. Besides various reports, the current slate of officers was re-elected by acclamation. The minutes of this meeting will only be available publicly once they have been approved at the next Meeting, which is scheduled for October 24, 2013. Rita De Santis, Member of the National Assembly, presented a very interesting talk on the experience of being a first-time MNA. More information may follow.
