Here are the highlights from the August 19 board of directors meeting: the CSU board of directors decided to pursue a membership with the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations (CASA). As a result, the external relations committee will draft a referendum question on fees associated with CASA membership to present to the student body. The dates for the fall semester’s board of directors meetings were officially set, and the procedures manual was altered to provide a more specific list of reasons why a board member may be absent from a meeting.
The vice-presidents of the organization are required to present reports to the board every semester, explaining what they have accomplished this semester so far as well as what their goals are for the coming semester. The board approved all of their goals for the coming months, but asked three of the vice-presidents to present again at the next board meeting with more detail on what they had accomplished over the summer.
The board decided to release $1,825 in funds to support the housing campaign as well as $2,050 to fund Disorientation, a welcome back event that will be held at Library Square on September 16. The board decided that tickets sales for Disorientation will be conducted both online and in person.
