Declaration of Conflict of Interest:
Approval of Agenda: Completed
Approval of Previous Minutes: Unavailable
· APPROVAL OF AGENDA: Approved
· Operation Wallacea: A conservation educational program that implements research expeditions. The group wants to present for their annual on campus visit at the school, however, wants to avoid facility rentals.
Action: On behalf of the FSA, we will invite the group to present information to all students as a guest speaker and the fee will likely be waived. Lee will be in contact with Operation Wallacea to determine when they are available and (unknown speaker) will organize with facilities at the college to book a room for the presentation.
Approved: Lee passed the motion, which was seconded by Kyle. All in favour and none were opposed.
· Signing Authority: Currently Sean, Lee and Sherri have signing authority, however, it has been brought to our attention that the general manager, financial advisor and both president and vice president should have that authority so that all of the board is aware of statements that are being approved. This potential agreement brings up positive and negative effects.
Action: Karen (General Manager) will receive a copy of the agenda and meeting minutes so that she will be more aware of FSA decisions and the approving of statements.
· DANCE NIGHT: Potentially have a dance night at the Auks Lodge, must take into consideration security, cost, DJ, advertisement, extra beer. Free the first night to see the level of participation.
