Discussion about council members who want to stay on. Most of council will go on ballot in June.
Council member on grad council?
Elected officials coming to every meeting? Do we need a treasurer?
CONCLUSIONS Zephy and James will stay on as network. Zephy and Derek will keep up with Grad and student council.
Q: Small stipend to entice new people on council? NO. It’s been looked into. Council members get different things out of position. Some money does make you feel more justified for putting the work in.
ACTION: everyone review the bylaws to amend next meeting.
