-        Meeting with Dr. Dunn:

-        Meeting with Abbie Twyford:

  • 2008-2009 SGA Executive Vice-President is now the Student Activities Coordinator at Eastern Gateway Community College. She wanted the EGCC Student Senate to team up with YSU SGA on a service project or some kind of collaboration. Most likely not until next semester.

-        Meeting with Jambar: Cassandra Twoey (Editor-in-Chief) and Josh Medore (Managing Editor)

  • We talked about ways to inform the student body about the services the Jambar offers to students.
  • We committed to working together more to help the student body

Executive Vice President’s Report

-        Last Lecture Series:

  • Tuesday, November 19th at 3:30 in the Auditorium in Williamson
  • Come!!

-        Meet the Reps:

  • Have completed at least one in each college
  • Making improvements to get more responses and to make it easier

-        Curriculum Sheets:

  • Had an informal meeting with Dr. Buckler
  • Still working on getting them together and working on website
  • 2 roadblocks
    • University putting undergraduate bulletin online and was told he can’t put curriculum sheets online that are different than what is this- not all have them and is a separate disorganized process
    • Was told by webmaster that the website needed to be disability friendly so that it could be read to people and pdf’s don’t work with this so basically told him to redo the entire thing
    • Working through these and asked for our support
    • Will be looking at the preliminary website design to see what should be added/taken away

-        Academic Standards Committee Meeting:

  • Excused absence policy
    • Defines what an excused absence would be (University sponsored event, government required event, documented personal illness, religious observance, death of immediate family)
    • Provides a procedure
      • Sponsor of event gives students signed letters and takes care of handling any disputes with instructors
      • Instructor informs student what they missed, allow for a makeup, and resolve conflicts with the sponsor
      • Students must notify the instructor, provide documentation to the instructor for the absence, and be responsible for all material and assignments/tests missed
      • Any comments/ suggestions?
      • Approve of it?
    • Changed language so that not open admissions but rather open access
      • Changed language in the conditional admissions policy
      • Is an Admissions Committee that reviews the potentially conditionally admitted students and determines if they will be admitted and how limited they will be, deny but will reconsider after they complete 30 hours at a community college or branch college, or deny them

-        Labor Management Council Meeting:

  • Budget
    • Started with $1.9 million of debt and now at $6.5 million (situation dire and needs to be addressed), another law trying to work its way through that would basically put all the universities in the state in academic watch
    • Using the savings plan (energy savings, decrease in operating expenses (both mandatory and voluntary), voluntarily giving up vacation and furlough days)
    • Unknowns include state funding amount that we’ll get and Spring enrollment/ retention
      • Not necessarily looking for an increase in enrollment, but rather less of a drop in enrollment
      • Clash between unions and administration over the way that the voluntary furlough day program was released

-The committee discussed possible locations, dates and times during the meeting but after further review with student activities we unfortunately will no longer be hosting this social event due to the limitations on our SGA budget.

-Extended hours during finals week. SGA will need to staff the hours of 10pm to 12am on MTW (12/09/2013, 12/10/2013, 12/11/2013) A signup will be going around next committee meeting.

-Fall service project will officially be a coat drive. SGA was able to team up with the Mahoning Valley Rescue Mission and One warm coat. Jen Reghetti will be receiving all of our advertising items this week to be able to put out around the community and campus. Jen will be talking to the deans of colleges to ask permission to set up barrels in those colleges for our coats. Jen was contact with Eastwood Mall and Southern Park mall asking their permission to place barrels there as well, she is still waiting to hear back from them. We will release our information to all local newspapers and news stations- it is their decision if they would like to put it out to the public. We will stop collecting coats on campus during finals week but the barrels will remain up throughout the community (as of right now the malls). We have permission to use SGA logo, Mahoning Valley Rescue Mission logo and One Warm Coat’s logo. ComDoc will be printing out flyers for our service project. Watch twitter and facebook for updates. If you see it up like it, share it, retweet it. Get the word out there!

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.
