Even during this extreme low energy period in the semester, we still had a good showing at this meeting! Keep on coming!
The first item on the agenda was an update on elections. As president, it’s my constitutional job to organize and implement elections this year. We are aiming for a quick turnaround between asking for consent to be nominated and nominee statements to the actual voting. We agreed that the goal was to know who the next WRAP officers will be by the next meeting on April 23rd.
We next discussed the budget. The domain for the website has been renewed for 3 years for a total cost of $111. We next discussed t-shirt pricing, wherein folks were tasked with contacting t-shirt companies. We are awaiting these estimates. We are also awaiting news on our submission for the COGs grant to decide on catering for the End of Semester Picnic on May 2nd.
From here we discussed in more detail the COGs grant, particularly if it’s worth pursuing for the next iteration of WRAP. We found there to be misinformation on the website that didn’t match the actual process for decision-making. While we submitted the proposal on time, apparently spring funds have already been dispersed. We are still awaiting their decision.
Next, a new website/network has been created for student organizations called michiganstate-community.symplicity.com. After baffling at the ironic spelling of “symplicity” we noted that this is the new website to register WRAP as a student organization in the fall.
Our last agenda item was the constitution revisions, which were passed.
