Meeting Notes from Feb 18

We had an SGA representative, Katie Palmer, come in and talk to us about how she is running for president this year. You can read her platform and stances on things in SGA on the SGA website under the notes section. She wants to be more active than past SGA presidents have been and really wants to make meetings more accessible to people by having it on Panopto.

  • We discussed grants and if guidelines would be changing, like on the attendance policy.
  • She discussed changing the time of when SGA assembly will meet to allow more people to attend
  • She wants to open up more discussions and communications between organizations and have more people on the board be diversified from different clubs and houses/dorms.
  • Tomorrow in Starbucks from 5 to 6 pm there is a meet and greet to meet SGA representatives running for president.
  • There will be a debate in the Riley Room on Wednesday at 6:30 to 8:30 pm and questions can be asked.

We are unable to get a grant this year because we didn’t meet the SGA requirements for a grant. This means we need to hold a fundraiser to try and raise money.

  • Fundraiser ideas:
    • “Auction off a Student” for a coffee or lunch meet up with professors or students. We would be reading off what the student has accomplished, is interested in, and is currently working on.



Roller Derby:

  • March 10th and April 5th as a possible group outing for Demia.


We need to take a group photo of all the Demia members to show a family picture of our group to add to the scrapbook.


We are a part of the Butler Yearbook this year.


We also are thinking about making a phone tree for Demia.


Keep being awesome everyone!
