Student Association Frost Campus Audit (Guest Speakers): Auditors make note of the fact there are a lot fewer entries this year. The representatives review the report on financial statements, management responsibility, balance sheet, current assets, liabilities, loan payable to the college, net assets, capital assets, surpluses and etc. and ensure that the statements are all presented fairly. A letter of management is presented for the review of internal control recommendations. Audit of the financial statements and letter of management of frost student association are for board use only as it includes confidential information.
Peterborough Student Services (Kristi Kerford): We are working on an agreement between the college and FSA and are very hopeful this year we will get an agreement in place. Ancillary fees are charged to support our student services and activities. There are rules that apply to ancillary fees and we need to establish a protocol that talks about increase/decrease/spending/planning and strategically dividing our money.

ROLE OF FSA: Schedule meetings (3 or more in a school year), timelines sign and complete the agreement. If fee holders are interested they can meet with the FSA to inform the students on how they are using our money from ancillary fees and allow for students to ask questions about their services.

What’s Happening Table on Discovery Trail: It is part of our job to attend the tables, promote health plans and student offers/promotions. We will email program presidents and Rob from residence to collaborate on using this time to also inform students about events and offers at the school. The updated discounts list will be emailed to all FSA.
Contract with AVNK Security: The company is requesting a contract to approve and have on file. Sarah has already drafted a contract stating that when we have events we will use them and it will also outline the rates.
Action: Lee will email Sarah for a copy of this agreement when it is finalized.
AGM: Lee has been looking into different ideas to make the event enjoyable and appealing to students as we need a minimum of 5% of the school to attend and vote.
