  1. President Report

We’ve come to a standstill with the STF contract. All of our amendments were met with indifference except for Article V, which was regarding the decreasing salaries paid from this particular fee. The VP and I got into a slight disagreement on whether or not the Board reserves the right to dissolve the fee or not. Might be something for our chief Justice to look into. SESF is also in the works. We are hoping to review the proposed changes at the next SESF and EAC meetings which are next week and the week after respectively.

On the programming side, our biggest event coming up is the multicultural fair on the 31st of this month.


  1. Budget Report

The balances are the same, since we didn’t have any new requests and that Amber Castaneda is working on getting into from Abby Lynn on what she has put through on the CAB end.
