BOARD SHORTS: September 2, 2016

Here are the highlights from the September 2 board meeting: the board decided that the vice-president of student life (as well as an undecided employee alternate) would represent the Capilano Students’ Union on the committee for Capilano University’s 50th-anniversary events throughout the 2017-18.

Nominations were opened up for student vacancies for various university committees. The committee vacancies were reviewed and nominations were put forward for the academic planning and program review committee, the bylaw, policy and procedure committee, the physical environment committee, the food and beverage committee, and the anti-harassment committee. Vacancies still remain for the instructional technologies advisory committee, the art exhibition committee, and the transportation committee.  

The board decided to release $4,000 from the budget to launch the new volunteer registry, and discussed the possibility of the volunteer registry having their own booth at the Capilano University Street Party. The board approved the plans for the Ride the Bull Social event for Welcome Week and released $920 from the budget to fund it. It was also decided that a street team program be implemented as part of the volunteer registry and that $600 be released from the budget to support it.

Plans were approved to go forward with the MP Environmental Forum, a panel discussing environmental issues to be held in the Bosa theatre with North Vancouver member of parliament Jonathan Wilkinson. They agreed to release $500 from the budget for funding purposes.
