Notes:

Daria here until end of September. President and Vice president positions need to be filled but also good to have space for incoming cohort. Bryn shows interest in president position but hesitant and prefers social committee. Possibly turning AGSA into official club. Bryn in the field until September. Steffan on speaker phone. If AGSA becomes a registered club how much funding is available for graduate clubs? Look into this issue- starting next year. Establishing better relations between undergraduate and graduate students. Forward description of presidential position to Martina and Steffan. Bryn (jokingly) suggests more meetings. Fundraising for treasurer. Polaroid pictures of MA and PhD students on bulletin board during first term? Martina as co-president. Bryn suggests Committee of Personality for Steffan and Martina.

Cordelia: regarding letter: need to take a vote about how GSI (graduate support initiative) money gets allocated. Equally or by national vs. international students. Poll via email.

 

Next meeting: September
