  1. It was decided to abolish gender bias of the Charta, and to erase the 1.7 paragraph. In order to make the Charta genderly correct, it was proposed to change "she" into "s/he".

    The conditions of the membership in the GSA is equal to the membership in the Undergraduate Student Body. It is non-trasnferrable, cannot be rejected, and is automatic for all graduate students from the day of their enrollement. It was decided to leave all the conditions as they are, so all student bodies are equally representative.
