Motion to approve the Agenda
Tom let us know about the open space with food available in Student Activities.
Camille thanked their team for their work over the past year and let them know that she was possibly going to be the next WashPIRG Campus Organizer for Evergreen next year.
Devin thanked Beth, our election commissioner, Tom, our advisor, Camille, the ED, and Dylan, the Deputy Speaker, for all their work. Camille, Dylan, and Mia are graduating, Tom is retiring.
Mia updated the team on the letter of support for the RAs. Will be sent out to them soon for feedback.
Waylon let us know where his internship fund was at. Going well.
Brandon asked the team if he could hold the Interim Executive Director for the summer.
Motion to let him have the position for the summer so he can work on a project him and Beth, the next ED, came up with together.
Asher apologized to the team for his absence and let the team know that his year of the end report will be sent out by Monday.
We can only take in 17 but candidates number 16,17, and 18 are tied. Our constitution keeps us from taking in all 18 instead of 17.
Motion to approve the election results for Fall quarter 2017.
Motion to notify the three way tied candidates that next year’s GSU will decide what to do then.
Charles, our Director of Legislative Affairs, let us know that he had been unable to hire a policy analyst due to many complications. Since he is the DLA for next year, transition documents will be written up but done later than usual.
Motion to let the people who will be here during the summer handle all transition documents with the exception of the ones mentioned in the bylaws (to be complete by the beginning of the second half of summer classes).
Motion to amend the main motion so that the DLA can work on a GSU town hall and visits by government officials during the summer (for next year).
Main motion: Approved.
Motion to have the GSU start the process to hire election commissioners for next year ASAP.
Motion to all take a picture with Tom, put it on a piece of paper, and then sign it.
