Round table Discussion

 

Round Table: Discussing Current Projects

Madeline: Working on the Fitness Facility, spoke with the Lawyer this morning. There was a criteria that had to be met before signing a contract including safety and accessibility. Madeline needs to send documents to the Lawyer to complete the contract then Management will review. Once the contract is approved it can be sent to the Fitness Facility. Madeline is projecting that the contract will be signed by mid-June.

Mike: ping pong table will be here this week

Sherry: Restructured the budget which is now at 0. All the changes requested by Madeline and Amanda were completed.

Sarah: HR Course, previous weeks projects will be discussed during the meeting. Worked on contacting companies for swag, updated a few documents

 

RCA to Audio Jack

Mike has been working on finding a way to get audio to the projector aside from the satellite connection. He brought in his own personal RCA to Audio jack but it didn’t work, he believes it could be because the cord itself isn’t working anymore, or there may be an issue with the laptop outlet. Mike contacted Marie Van Halteren who will have her brother come in to check out our system. He knows people in the college so there is a chance we won’t be charged for the service, he just needs to be able to find the time to come by.  Sarah mentioned that the laptop audio can be hooked up to another set of speakers we have on stage as another option if we cannot directly tap into the sound system.

Sarah Motions to Approve $20 for a high quality RCA to Audio jack. Madeline seconds. All in favour to purchase an RCA to Audio Jack to a maximum of $20.

 

Banners:

Sarah is looking for input on designs and thinks that simple black banners with white writing would complement the black accents in the Auk’s Lodge. Amanda suggested that dark brown would look nice, Madeline agrees. Mike likes the idea of black and white. Sherry suggested Fleming Colours because the green looks good with the wood and see if it can be made double sided. Sarah wanted to make sure everyone approved and agreed on the design before ordering the banner.

No vote required.

 

Throws:

Sarah presented table runners with two different designs displaying our logo and what information will be provided at that table. Amanda likes the look of the small logo on front with the information and our logo on top.

No vote required.

 

Thermal Gravity Pot:

Sarah proposed purchasing a new thermal coffee pot to replace the existing one. The current one leaks and the seals are going on it. Sarah found one at National Grocers for $129.99.

Madeline motioned to approve a budget of $150.00 for a Thermal Gravity Pot, Amanda seconds. All in favour of approving a budget of $150.00 for a new Thermal Gravity Pot.

 

Curtains:

Sarah would like to purchase curtains for the overhead doors in the Auk’s Lodge so that the Kawartha Grill is hidden during events and to also act as a backdrop for photo booths. To purchase an inside mount curtain kit can cost upwards of $80.00 each set not including the curtains. Sarah was able to find a cheaper option by purchasing the brackets, curtains and curtain rods separately.  Madeline would like to make sure Facilities is ok with the FSA putting in the brackets. Sherry suggested spring rods, Sarah said that they used the spring rods last year for convocation but they didn’t work and just kept falling down with the weight of the curtains. All in total including the curtains would cost approximately $150.00.

Amanda motions to approve a budget of $175.00 pending the approval of facilities. Madeline seconds. All in favour to approve a budget of $175.00 for curtains and hardware for the overhead doors in the Auk’s Lodge.

 

Bike Stand and Financing Break Down: Revisit

Students for Sustainability (SFS) can put in $1500.00 for the bike stand leaving only $250.00 which Tanya was going to pay for out of her own pocket. Sarah suggests giving them the $250 because we are getting our logo put on it also. Madeline was thinking of proposing $300 because SFS is using the last of their budget to purchase the bike station. Previously we approved putting $500.00 towards it, but at the time we didn’t know how much money SFS required us to donate.

Amanda motions to approve providing Sustainability with $500.00 for the bike stand, Sarah seconds.

All in favour to donate $500.00 to SFS for the Bike Stand.

 

 

FSA Apparel: Revisit

Madeline is waiting on quotes which will hopefully be provided by the end of the week. Once she knows what the best deal is, then we can move forward. They are going to purchase Madeline and Amanda’s sweaters and jackets first since they will be here for welcome days and then purchase for the rest of the FSA as well as managers at a later time.

No vote required.

New Business:

Sustainability Bike Shop, Coffee Club and Fitness Facility

 

Pull-Ups/ Marketing:

Madeline designed a pull-up that is simple and features the FSA logo and where to find us on social media. It does not provide a lot of information which encourages students to approach the Directors, which is what the FSA wants. A rough-draft brochure was provided by Amanda that featured the same background as the Pull-Up for continuity which can be purchased for $149.99 for 500 units. The brochures will contain information about FSA Directors, Managers and FSA Services. Madeline presented business cards that also featured the same theme which are currently on sale through ‘Vista Print’. All 10 members of the FSA can obtain 100 custom cards each for $99.80 plus applicable taxes/shipping. Madeline presented a rough draft of table top ‘tents’ that features the FSA logo and Social Media outlets which can be purchased for $56.99 for 50 units.

Sherry is concerned that the background is too dark and doesn’t show the logo. Madeline wants it to appear as if the logo is ‘burnt’ into the wood and wants the wording of ‘Frost Student Association’ to be what stands out. Suggestions were made to have the colour of the logo changed or make the background lighter. Sarah mention that in the past, when inverting the colour of the logo to white doesn’t look nice because of the shading in the Auk.

Madeline would like to purchase a banner for the display cabinet that will cost $7.99. The one presented was plain white with the FSA logo, Sarah suggests that the banner be the same background at the Pull-Ups, cards and brochure to match. 

Madeline is looking into hats for the Directors that has their title on it to better identify themselves to  students. They can be purchased for $66.08 for 10 hats that are embroidered. Hats will help for outdoor events and provide safety for the Directors. Madeline would also like to look into T-Shirts, Sweaters, and vests and compare costs. 

To purchase all the items in the Marketing Proposal will cost approximately $400-$500.

Madeline and Amanda will do comparison shopping on Thursday and present all findings next week.

Sherry will look into how much money is in the Marketing Budget. Madeline would like to start with a $500.00 budget.

Mike motions to approve, Sarah Seconds- All in favour vote to approve $500 Marketing Budget

 

Summer Orientation:

BBQ will begin at 11 and go until 2pm. Aramark will be setting up in the courtyard. Madeline would like to stamp hands and hand out ballots before they get their food. Trivia will begin at 12pm which will be hosted by Madeline and Amanda. Monique and Matt have offered to help out. Volleyball will go from 4pm-6pm. After volleyball everyone will return to the Auk’s Lodge for the Jays Game and will do the draw for the Jays Tickets. Sherry suggested that the draw be at the 7th inning stretch which usually happens around 9pm. This will encourage more people to stay. Sarah suggested that the draw happen before the game starts so that student who have early classes will not be forced to stay late to potentially win. All agreed that students must be present to win the tickets. Pool tables will be open and snacks provided.

Mike motions for the draw to take place during the 7th inning stretch, Madeline Seconds. 4-1 vote in favour of the draw being held in the 7th inning stretch.

Sarah will make ballots for the Jays Game

 

Recording Meeting Minutes:

Madeline and Amanda are proposing that we discontinue recording meetings to reduce the potential of recordings being leaked to the students. Amanda stated that they found out that meetings do not need to be recorded and if there is a Scribe, then there shouldn’t be a need to also record. Madeline stated that if the recordings were to get out it could be a liability to the FSA and damaging. Amanda stated that one of the suggestions that had been made prior to the meeting (by Sarah) is that if there is a concern of the recording being leaked, that they be saved for the purposes of completing accurate meeting minutes, then a member of the FSA deletes the recording afterwards. Sherry mentioned that past Boards tried to eliminate the standard of recording meetings, but she thinks that the lawyer said we had to record. Madeline and Amanda will confirm with the lawyer. Sarah stated that as a voting member it is easier to record the meetings so that participation in discussions can be the priority. Sarah also mentioned that by recording the meetings, it gives the Chair more incentive to keep control of the Board by reducing inappropriate or irrelevant conversation.  Sarah mentions that meeting minutes can be altered and having voice recordings eliminates any doubt that the minutes were altered. Sherry believes that is why it might be a requirement to record meetings because there was suspicion of a previous scribe leaving out information from the minutes. Sarah proposed that in the future, if the Board decides to hire a Scribe, a policy should be designed allowing the Scribe to sign out the recorder, and can only use an FSA computer to complete minutes so that the device never leaves the offices. 

 

Sustainability:

Tanya from Students for Sustainability approached Madeline to see if the FSA would like to contribute funds to purchase a bike repair station. The cost is approximately $1600 and Madeline believes that their department will be covering most of it. Madeline would like to donate funds on the agreement that the FSA logo will be visible on it. Madeline would like to see what is available for us to donate and proposed the idea of a bake sale to raise money. The repair station will be put in this summer and will be located near the Auk’s Lodge. Tanya never mentioned how much of a donation she was looking for so Madeline will get that information for the next meeting. Mike proposed a ride to raise funds like the 5K Run.

We will revisit.

 

Coffee Club/Display:

Tim Hortons is giving out 1000 reusable mugs, SFS is also handing out mugs so we will no longer order mugs in partnership with the Coffee Club Membership. We may still look into getting FSA specific mugs, but not in the quantity we were initially looking at. Sarah mentioned that a display case for all FSA swag that we are looking to sell might be beneficial since there is no place behind the bar to display these items. Madeline will ask her dad if he has a trophy case he can donate to us. Mike will do some research to see if he can find affordable options.

We will revisit.

 

Fitness Facility:

The new facility meets safety requirements, it is wheelchair accessible, and they have numerous change rooms and washrooms to accommodate our numbers. Madeline might like to add to the contract that they fix up the wheel chair access a bit. Madeline will draw up the contract in partnership with our Lawyer and will hopefully have the new agreement signed by June.

We will revisit.

 

Ping Pong Table:

Mike will reach out to friends with trucks to get the Ping Pong table to the Auk’s Lodge as it will not fit in his Van. If no other options are available, Mike can rent a U-Haul van to transport the Ping Pong Table.

Madeline motions to approve renting a U-Haul truck if necessary. Sherry seconds. All in favour of renting a U-Haul truck.

Madeline, Amanda and 1 student at large have been invited to attend the Women in Leadership Conference at Trent University. The main focus of this event is team building, empowerment, inclusiveness, accessibility and networking opportunities, amongst other activities and programs.

The event is 2 days for $100.00 per person and the FSA is sponsoring the Student. The fee includes food and lodging. Kristi Kerford has sent an all student email/questionnaire to find a candidate for the opportunity.

Sarah motioned to approve, Mike seconds- All in favour vote for the FSA to pay the $300 for the conference.

 

Pull-Ups-Display

The college and most other organizations have pull-up displays that represent their business and identify who they are and what services they provide. Madeline has prepared a list of prices and size charts from a variety of companies ranging from $130-$400. Madeline is proposing the purchase of 2 pull-ups so for such event where FSA representatives are both in the Auk’s Lodge and the Discovery Trail. Madeline would like to customize the pull-ups to display the FSA logo as well as the services we provide and social media outlets. Madeline will work with pictures and layout design for the Pull-Ups. These pieces are investments that will last a long time with proper care and will create a more professional image for the FSA. The pull-up presented were only 31”, the FSA would like larger scale displays. Sherry will look to see how much money is in the Marketing budget, Madeline will work on designing the display and look for more affordable options and quotes. Madeline already has been working on designs and layout. She would like to keep it environment themed and is considering taking pictures herself of students in their program specific gear to include on the display.

We will revisit next week.

 

Coffee Mugs:

Madeline would to purchase coffee mugs with the FSA logo to sell individually or inclusive with the Coffee Club Membership. Madeline would like to purchase 500 mugs to take advantage of the discount, Sherry will look into how many people joined the Coffee Club last year as it may not be practical to purchase that many. In order to boost sales we will create a display in the FSA cabinet in the hallway. Preference for the style is plastic that is BPA free with a handle so that people can reheat their beverages. Madeline will look for products that meet those standards and obtain a price list with the logo.

We will revisit next week.

 

Table Throws:

Madeline would like to purchase 3 (three) table throws that say ‘FSA’ or ‘Frost Student Association’. We need to get a measurement of the folding tables we use to make sure we order the proper size. The price list provided was not the cheapest option available so Madeline will research other companies and customize the colours and logos.

We will revisit next week.

 

Swag Bags:

We already have an overstock of razors, glasses, and feminine products from previous years. Amanda will be doing an inventory of all the items we have in stock. Madeline wanted to put in USB sticks last year and will look into that again for this year. Madeline uses 4imprint and Discount Mugs to research swag options but also looks around at other websites for the best prices. Amanda proposed socks with the FSA logo. Mike referred a company called PRISM that does embroidering locally and they are willing to work with the FSA. Other options for swag bags are items like note books, granola bars, toiletries geared to males, Kleenex and toilet paper, someone will talk with local dentists and other businesses to see if they can donate goods with their logos on it, gum, snacks, agendas that are Frost specific (these were discontinued due to cost, we will look into the option of selling) Uncle Bens Rice, Tattoo coupons. Sherry will find the name of the company where the agendas were done in previous years and provide contacts to Madeline. Little Caesars, Bulk Barn and 2for1 pizza all provide student discounts, someone will contact to see if they have items to add to the swag bags.  

 

Blue Jays Tickets:

Sarah would like to purchase 2 tickets to a Blue Jays Game as a Summer Orientation give away. For every event attended that day, the participant will be given a ballot for the draw. Sarah would like a $50.00 budget for the tickets. Amanda does not think that $50.00 is enough for tickets. Madeline Motions to Approve a $75.00 budget for tickets. Amanda seconds- all in favour to approve $75.00 before taxes budget for Blue Jays Tickets. Sarah will purchase the tickets with her credit card.

 

Office and Auk’s Summer Hours:

Sherry will be working Monday to Thursday 9am-5pm with exception of the Friday before holidays for Payroll purposes.

Sarah will be working Tuesday to Friday 10 hour shifts from8am-6pm

Mike will be working Tuesday to Friday 10 hours shifts that will revolve around  the Jays game times

The Auk’s Lodge will be opening at 11am, closing at 8pm on regular nights and approximately 10pm on nights when we are broadcasting the Blue Jays games.

Madeline and Amanda will be working 9am-4pm Monday to Friday.

Madeline will confirm class times with Stacey Roth.

Amanda motions to approve Auk summer hours, Madeline seconds- All in favour to approve Auk’s Lodge Summer hours.

 

Marketing: Table Runners

Sarah was approved a budget of $500.00 on April 19/2017 and is looking for input on what will be embroidered on the runners. Ideas include Clubs, Program President, Health Plan, Food Bank and Good Food Box for a total of 4 (four) throws.

 

Enviro-thon:

Allison Hands contact Sarah to book the Auk’s Lodge on May 29th and 30th form 7:30pm-10pm. This event is for minors and all that is required from staff is a playlist and the dance floor set up. More information from Allision needs to be obtained since she initially said she wanted both nights exclusively, but now it might only be one. Sarah was initially only going to charge them $100 for the night, but in past years they were charged upwards of $650. Sarah doesn’t believe that to be reasonable since minimal services are required and proposed $300 for both nights, and $150-$200 for 1 night plus a damage deposit.

Madeline motions to approve $200 for 1 night, and $300 for 2 nights. Amanda seconds – All in favour of approving that booking fee.

 

Art Wall:

Mike was assigned the task of getting the Student Art Wall set up. Approval for the supplies was Board approved on March 09/2017 with the Board voting on purchasing plastic hangers. It was requested that Mike try for a bulk deal.  Madeline wants Mike to get it set up soon. Mike will work on it tomorrow ( May 04/2017)

 

Ping Pong Table:

Mike was approved for a budget of $100.00 for a Ping Pong Table on March 23rd, he told the FSA he would purchase and pick up. Sherry currently does not have a float to be able to provide Mike with $100.00 and once she can provide the money, Mike will pick up. Amanda would like a post for game etiquette.

 

Summer Orientation:

Plans for summer orientation include a BBQ, trivia and beach volleyball. Madeline confirmed there is enough money in the Transition Budget. Food still needs to be arranged. Sherry wants Madeline and Amanda to make sure that Heavy Equipment is included since they make up a large portion of our enrollment. Madeline wants to meet with Rob to get posters put up at Residence and get Rez Life leaders on board. Lunch will start at 11:30am and trivia will begin at 12pm. The BBQ and trivia will go until 1pm. Beach volleyball will go from 4pm-7pm near residence so that people can come by and participate after class. Madeline and Amanda will promote watching the Blue Jays Game in the Auk’s Lodge afterwards where the draw for the tickets will be held. Madeline and Amanda are going to go from class to class and through the halls on Tuesday May 9th to promote Summer Orientation and the Jays Game specials in the Auk’s Lodge. 

 

Regular meetings will occur every Wednesday at 1pm with the exception of next week which will be on Tuesday due to Orientation.

 

Sherry requested a price break down of all the items approved for purchase

Declaration of Conflict of Interest: N/A

Approval of Agenda: Approval of agenda dated April 6th 2016 through email; all board members are in favour.

Announcements: N/A

New Business:

 

Kevin Jackson Elections: Kevin, through his experience, has made suggestions to improve the efficiency of the election campaign and process. We want to make some changes that will help make moving forward easier. There are multiple physical documents in different locations. It is suggested that we put together a master copy. This will ensure the participants are fully aware of the election rules and will have one official document to refer to rather than multiple in multiple different places. Another suggestion is that we set a drop date for the campaigning that is more reasonable and timely. Role descriptions are slightly outdated and it may be in our best interest to review and make amendments. A new idea could be to eliminate the names of specific roles and have tasks distributed rather than assigned. Refer to the review and suggestion sheet Kevin Jackson has provided for further information.

 

Kristi Year in Review: Kristi wants to thank our current board and welcome next years. This is her first full cycle in this role and has provided positive feedback to our members. She has mapped out month to month what she does and at what time to ensure everything is covered and we are well informed. She has provided a Student Government (SG) Liaison Overview package that outlines the roles of the position. We are looking into hiring a new representative for this role and Rob Marsh is our first choice. He is heavily involved in student life and shows interest in closing the gap between residence and FSA. She has also provided a Student Government Orientation Package that will be helpful in terms of transition from current board to next board. Refer to the documents provided for reference and Kristi will follow up and please let her know if we have any questions because she is here to support in any way she can.  

 

 

 

 

 

Ken Reid Park: Want more information that has not been provided. They are asking for a portion to support the students that attend. We would like to know how/ if the FSA is involved before giving said amount.

Vote: All board members are in favour of making no payments at this point in time.

 

Food Bank: Sean will forward email to everyone to ensure everyone is aware of the foodbank event and will attend if they can.

 

Positional Emails: Lindsay is absent, revisit.

 

5K: At this point there are only 3-5 people signed up for the run. Suggested that it is held in the fall for future. Due to lack of interest and possible inclement weather the new deadline to register is for Thursday at 1 and if not enough people have registered the event will be cancelled.

Announcements: N/A

Old Business:

 

Kevin Jackson: Revisit.

 

Summer Hours: There is no perfect scenario; operating hours can be modified for different benefits. Hours can be amended to accommodate the needs of students. We want to look at the numbers from last year and projected numbers for this year to see the difference in income. Staff is willing to accommodate and be open with one employee which is significantly different and will save most losses. We must be aware that there are many things subject to change. Employees may search for further employment and contracts have not yet been signed.  

 

Vote: All of board members are in favour of the Auks lodge being open and everyone is in agreement. The cost at which is to be determined.

 

All in favour of asking Sarah G. to change employment contract and modify hours for Sarah K. Approval is subject to signing new contract that the board agrees upon.

 

New Business:

 

Raise: An employee has asked for an almost 18% pay increase. It is tough to look at these numbers in comparison to the existing numbers. The FSA is not in a point that they can make significant financial changes. We have to look at numbers and justify them. Right now we are not in the position to do that and we can potentially look at it and revisit the following semester.

Vote: All in favour for no change in pay from this request at this point in time. Lee motions, Sean seconds and all are in favour.

 

5K: We have mapped out a route and have a good supply of what is needed. April 9th is the official date. Certificates and snacks may need funding. Volunteers needed, Tim will approach Rob from residence and will follow up Wednesday with more detail.

 

 

Keep Calm and Study: Does not need money for a massage but has asked to provide popcorn instead. All in favour of giving 30 dollars towards popcorn send Sherry and email as a heads up.

Vote: All in favour of giving 30 dollars towards popcorn, all in favour and approved.

 

PASTA Day: Refer to email and whoever is available will show up with Sherry. Give out buffs and swag donations to wear for the day. Give buffs out to people who are volunteering for free.

 

Positional Emails: Idea running around to make separate emails for each board member so transitions are simple and accounts will be handed off and so on. Lindsay will take this on.

 

OPEN HOUSE: Whoever is available will attend.

 

 FSA Retreat with Current and Next Board: Meet as a team somewhere and see for response for the most that can attend.

Announcements: N/A

Old Business:

 

Terrarium: Gone. Tarissa will check in a few weeks and see what it is being used for, hatcheries have taken it happily. Follow up for sustainability report.

 

5K: Tabitha estimates the total cost could reach 5 thousand in expenses. Food, t-shirts, ‘thank you’, metals, water stations, most things we already have and can eliminate most expenses with volunteers. Closing road and getting approvals may come into place. Dates 9th of April or 16th. Conflicts with dates and ring ceremony. Get posters when date is established, Tim and Tabitha will collaborate.  

 

Summer Auk Lodge: Lee informs new board on situation. At this point it is at a loss. The clock is ticking and they want to know what is going on and if it means being laid off or amended hours. Sean and Lee are going to sit down with the staff to find out issues and concerns. Need their opinion within the next week so that everyone has the most amount of notice as possible. Additional staff in the summer was good and utilized however there is potential for it to be done without. An issue that we have to address will affect staff and around 300 students for the summer.

 

Shuttle Bus Service: Revisit.  

 

 

New Business:

 

Ken Reid: The idea is to pay a bulk sum of 1000 dollars to cover parking passes for Fleming College to use parking without pay for the full school year. Unsure if we like the idea that students are paying and others get the benefits however it could be an FSA initiative to support the student. The idea is in place and we will revisit.

 

Pasta Day March 31st: Looking for volunteers and festive initiatives. Money raised goes towards food bank and will advertise and promote how we can give back to Kawartha Lakes since they provide food for food bank.

Old Business:

Rec Plex: Next year’s board is informed of the current contract and ongoing decision process for the recreational complex and facility agreement with the college.

Votes are calculated and Rachel Bourne is president and Matt Kinslow is the director of finance. No appeals in 48hrs therefore these are the finalized votes. Other directors were acclaimed. We want to send an official thank you and conclusion to those who supported and helped in the election process. What is left in the budget can be used towards gratitude. Post-election report will be sent out soon. Lee motions to approve that some of what is left in the budget in reason can be used towards saying thank you to our supporters. 

 

Additional Notes:

 

Sherry has been diagnosed with carpel tunnel so we are responsible for assisting her in purchasing a new keyboard for her desk. Sean motions 100 dollars to approve for a new keyboard, Lee seconds and all are in favour.

Declaration of Conflict of Interest: N/A

Approval of Agenda: Approval of agenda by Meaghan, Tim seconds and all are in favour for approval of agenda dated February 24th, 2016.

Approval of Previous Minutes: Amendments are currently being made and minutes will be approved at a later date.    

Announcements: N/A

Old Business:

 

Ancillary Fees: It is proposed that the FSA raise the student activity fee to 19.9% to accommodate for bar staff wages and upgrades towards the Student Centre. The alcohol policy states there must be supervisors and security on the floor at events related to alcohol consumption in order for the events to be approved. This percentage will primarily cover wages and if this proposal is taken to the board of directors it must be proven that the money has a purpose and is broken down accordingly. Lee proposes that we specifically put 5% of that towards upgrades directly for the Student Centre. The amounts raised for this school period are applied into the following years unless voted upon by the current board. Tentatively, the board motions to raise the ancillary fee by 19.9% with 5% in respect to the Student Centre. Lee will clarify with Kristi for her opinion knowing that she has experience in making changes. The board is currently not fully confident in their decision at this time and a document will be finalized and signed at a later date.

 

Motion: To accept the college levy fee, Meaghan puts forward the motion, Lee seconds and all board members are in favour to approve.

 

Audio minutes are available for reference to further discussion and policies can be accessed upon request.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Security Contract: Suggested changes from the lawyer have been given to the security company that we currently have. If the company approves changes they will finalize it and send it back. A contract will prove the security company responsible for their actions and behaviours. The security company is requesting to be paid NET15 rather than NET30 and will talk to Sarah.

 

Terrarium: Waiting for response and will revisit.

 

Liaison Role: The role is written in a certain Derek has a boss. If there is a recommendation for the change essentially it must be reviewed and determined on how to move forward. Next year we suggest that they ensure they are receiving their time from the liaison and the role is fulfilled. Inform the board of their disposal.

 

New Business:

 

Accountability Sessions: Paying Lee while he was unavailable during the week ending February 20th, 2016 and documented out of office on his timesheet. The FSA constitution can be referred to for the reason for accountability. It must be discussed and voted as a unified board that he should or should not be paid for that week and a reason for that decision. Lee respectfully refuses the pay and no further voting is required. This honorarium must be amended to cover for time absent and how that can be specifically handled depending on each individual circumstance. It is suggested that for future situations, if you can justify your hours then you should in fact be paid for that time.

 

REC PLEX: Finalize questions and survey for the agreement, revisit the following week.

 

Meeting Time:  To be determined through email response. ru
