Here are the highlights from the October 20 meeting of the CSU board of directors.

The CSU is working with Good Night Out to train volunteers to join and be involved with the non-profit. Good Night Out is a non-profit that aims to end sexual harassment and assault in venues, bars, clubs, pubs and festivals across the world.

The board has approved a number of upcoming events including a film screening of North of 49 and the CSU’s Nightmare Before Mid-Term Halloween event.

The finance and audit committee have been working on the tail end of the Mental Health Strategy, due to roll out at the end of the fall semester. Eight members have been approved to attend the Mental Health Conference.

There has been an approval of $3,475 in order to send VP External, Noah Berson, and one other board member to CASA (Canadian Alliance of Student Association) Advocacy week. This is a great opportunity to meet with Members of Parliament in the country’s capital and promote the issues of post-secondary education barriers. The board has also approved a budget of $400 for the purchase of a public announcement system.
