- IV. Announcements
- SGA Dinner, Monday, 3/28, 5pm: The dinner will be at Loren’s house. Dress nice! We will meet at 4:50 outside the Commons
- Commons Volunteer reminder: The Board is coming this weekend and this Saturday is the dedication of the Commons Phase II. Reminders were given to those who volunteered to help out. Wear your SGA t-shirts!
- V. Old Business
a. AVAIL website: Ben asked for feedback on AVAIL; some senators found that their
search results didn’t bring many options. Someone mentioned that searching under the
tags listed proved to be more helpful. Senators thought there were a lot of neat links in other outside organizations which was cool. It was also stated that the fact that the organizations listed how frequently help was needed was helpful. Most found it to be a fairly intuitive site!
b. T-shirt toss volunteers: Volunteers are needed to toss t-shirts at the final volleyball
games; Amin and Sarah will toss at tomorrow’s game at 7:00 and Hannah S. offered to
toss them at Saturday’s game at 2:00.
c. SGASP: Ben and Michael brought the revised SGA Strategic Plan (SGASP) to the
senate for review. This plan includes four goals for the next three years and each goal
has several objectives necessary to reach the goal. Discussion ensued on point A-1 which
discusses the establishment of clear and specific documents to outline role
responsibilities and tips from previous members; Janelle felt that there should be more of
an ongoing date written in so future exec members would be more obligated to continue
to revise their documents. Most felt that this was not something to put in an actual
strategic plan because technically, we can’t be positive that future exec would follow
through. We decided something could be written in the actual document to show that this
process should continue to be ongoing so the role responsibilities and tips can be updated
in the future. When discussing B-3, which discusses encouraging student initiatives, it
was mentioned that this was very vaguely written and it might be a good idea to include
more specific examples (the Idea Drive, etc.). Other small discussions involved small
grammatical changes and where the document should go from here (perhaps Ken L.
Nafziger will have suggestions about that implementation and appropriate paths to take).
Senators were reminded that the SGASP is a continuously-working, revisable document
that future SGA’s will be able to revise at the end of their terms.
Motion 23032011-2 to approve the SGASP as the senate’s working plan with said changes: Dan
