Active Pres: Went to risings stars and presidents academy. NDLA Feb 24th and Feb 28th.Asking for us to send 4 , they pay for all expenses ($575 total package). Thinking Matt, mem ed, mem ed for following semester, and recruit. Treasurer track wouldn’t get as much out of it, and committing to more people is expensive. Change to accreditation, currently all true men from inspection. Now all true men through accreditation every year, have to take accreditation very seriously even though we’re doing well. Must remain above 3.0 gpa we are around 3.4 . Getting inspected Feb 4th, school is aware and willing to help ( clean up crew / Mock inspection group). Had a lot of trash over winter break, community is giving us a hard time, communicated to the crew who picks up trash. received a millenio noise complaint, will give them his number so that it can be communicated. President of UCLA spoke about risk management, talked about new alcohol regulations. Speak with sororities to communicate risk concerns/solutions. Spoke about adjusting bylaws to command adherence to new alcohol regulations. New risk committee ( pres, mem ed, social chair). IFC is getting push back on the idea of Bid night. Education fund foundation money, 1112 will follow up.
