Every week, your elected student government meets on a Tuesday night to talk about issues concerning the ASU. Agenda items can seem long, mysterious and confusing without the proper background, making it difficult to see how these issues affect students. Here’s what happened at the last meeting on February 13th:
Changes to House Council Constitutions
There have been some changes made to the hiring process for executive members on House Councils, including the inclusion of a VP Events and VP Communications. There have been some slight changes to the elected representatives on House Council, mostly regarding titles.
SUB Renewal Proposal
The SUB Renewal Committee Proposal was tabled to the next regular meeting of Council.
