The Recruitment Advisory Committee for the next ASUCD Business Manager has selected three top candidates: Janice Corbett, Emily Sanson-Smith and Christine Soldahl. Forums on May 28, June 3 and June 4 have been scheduled for students, faculty and staff to learn more about each candidate. All three candidates once attended UC Davis as students and two currently work at UC Davis, though none of the candidates currently work in the Association.
