Student Life Meeting Minutes 10-21-2013

Caroline called the meeting to order at 4:01 PM.  Taylor took role.

Present: Caroline Standohar, Taylor Greathouse, Marie Adams, Mary Carchedi, Carolyn Carney, Gabriella Gessler, Rebecca Banks, Kendal Malsch, Jennifer Reghetti, Kayla Richey

Excused Absences: Samantha Burton

Unexcused Absences: Justen Vrabel

Guests: N/A

1.    Unfinished Business-

-     SGA coffee giveaway which was held during homecoming week was a huge success. We got a lot of positive feedback about it and the students really seemed to love it. Caroline mentioned doing this giveaway every semester to promote SGA.

-     SGA tailgate HUGE success!! It went longer than planned and everyone in attendance had a great time! In the past couple years that Caroline has been on SGA she hasn’t seen such a great turnout of people. After the parade many people came over to the SGA tent and ate food, hardly any food was leftover. We had a lot of international students come on over and the representatives in attendance got to talk with them.

2.    New Business

    -Service Project for the fall will be a coat drive. Jen Reghetti thought of the awesome idea and has been in contact with the Mahoning Valley rescue mission and One Warm Coat. At the meeting we discussed how if we were to go through One Warm Coat they will send us promotional things. We discussed how we wanted to make this coat drive a community thing and maybe put out boxes around the area to hopefully collect more. The start date for this drive will be November 4th and Caroline was going to be in contact with Erin from student activities for a deadline. At our next committee meeting we will further discuss the finalizing details of the project. It was brought up that maybe in the future we could challenge our organizations on campus for whoever raised the most would get money for their next event. We all liked this idea and Caroline was going to be in contact with financial affairs.

-Kendal’s book drive will be in the spring where we want to get organizations involved.

   -SGA gift exchange/ Christmas party. Caroline came up with this idea to celebrate the end of the semester and the holiday season. We decided to have it on Friday December 6th from 7 to 9pm at V2. Caroline was going to call V2 to make arrangements. An idea that was tossed around was to wear your ugly sweater. If you want to be part of the exchange a signup will be passed around a body meeting early to mid Nov.

-Rebecca thanking everyone, a lot of good feedback from her students. Also she loved the bonfire.

What fundraising efforts has your organization recently put forth? What is being planned?: This year, SALSA is really trying to step up and be an active student organization. In previous years, there has been little participation and leadership in this group so there have not been any fundraisers or service events in the past years that we know of. This year we plan to hold two fundraisers per semester. We will be having a bake sale this month or in early November. At out Meet and Greet event, we will be collecting canned goods and money for VA Clinic Food Pantry on Belmont Avenue for Thanksgiving. This is an organization for veterans.

We will also have an Upward Bound Christmas party for kids from Youngstown City Schools. We will have close to 70 members present at this event. Another important event will be hosted in the Spring semester. The Read Across America event will bring in close to 100 kids from the inner city and we usually have close to 90 people volunteer. Some of these students are not even involved in YSEA, they just wish to help out.

Name of Event: Central Fraternal Leadership Conference
Date of Event: February 6-9, 2014
Location: Indianapolis, Indiana
Expected Participation: 5
Total Cost of Event: $3490

Description of Event: According to www.aflv.org, the website of the Central Fraternal Leadership Conference, “the Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values exists to stimulate the growth and development of fraternity/sorority council and chapter leaders by promoting leadership, educational, and values based experiences and resources for student leaders, their advisors, and the larger fraternal market. The Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values (AFLV) is the showcase for cutting-edge Fraternity/Sorority programming, technology, thinking, and concepts.”

Attendance at this conference has been an annual event for the members of our executive council. Through participation, the leaders of our student organization have obtained invaluable skills in many areas including management, organization, marketing, problem solving, handling diversity, crisis intervention, and networking.

AFLV’s conference spans four days which include two full days and two half days of conference sessions. As it is being held in Indianapolis this year, it will take additional time to travel there and back.

How will this event benefit YSU and the student body?: Through attending this conference, students affiliated with the National Panhellenic Council have the opportunity to attend over two days’ worth of sessions on topics that range from honing leadership abilities to crisis intervention to tips for recruitment strategies to dealing with diversity. After participating in these stimulating discussions with collegiates from across mid-western America, our representatives will have the opportunity to share these new ideas with YSU students as well as put them into practice.

In addition to the varied workshops that are offered, various keynote speakers, such as Rick Barnes, give inspirational speeches with messages that hit home with Greek collegiates.

If given the opportunity to attend this conference, the five members of our executive council will be able to obtain crucial leadership skills which they can, in turn, share with other students here at YSU. After all, a person can make a bigger impact on their community if they, themselves, have had the chance to improve upon their own character.

What fundraising efforts has your organization recently put forth? What is being planned?: We have a fundraising sponsorship program set-up where individuals or companies can sponsor us, and in return they will get certain benefits including marketing on our car. We have already started our sponsorship program and plan to continue it throughout the year.

What community service has your organization participated in recently? What is being planned? Please be specific as to how many participate and if it is done on behalf of the organization.: The Baja team participated in silly science day where there was close to 300 people that attended. The silly science day was a day that was all about the kids and they got to sit in the Baja car or ask questions about it. There were 10 of our members that were available to volunteer and participate in the event.

Name of Event: Baja SAE Illinois
Date of Event: June 4 – 7, 2014
Location: Peoria, Illinois, USA
Expected Participation: 10
Total Cost of Event: $15,000

Description of Event: The SAE Baja Competition is an inter
-collegiate engineering design event founded in 1976 to promote students’ knowledge of vehicle production.
The cars are built to intense design specifications and tested to the limit, often jumping off ramps and maneuvering over treacherous terrain. This competition simulates real world engineering design projects and their related challenges. It is a great way for students to get experience, not only
in an engineering sense but business as well.

All vehicles are powered by a 10 hp Briggs & Stratton engine.

How will this event benefit YSU and the student body?: This event will benefit YSU and the student body because it puts YSU’s name out into a worldwide competition. At last years competition there were teams from other countries including Brazil and Mexico, as well as teams from big name schools like Ohio State, Purdue, Michigan. There is no reason why YSU can’t compete with these schools and be recognized as a top competitor and known for its engineering program. This is the ultimate test for YSU students to be able to show the full potential and talent that is being done at YSU. The car is being built completely from scratch, so it takes a lot of skill, time, design, and determination to be able to do what we do.
