Feb. 8th Meeting Minutes

The Bookmarks English Club
Full Club Meeting Minutes
February 8, 2012

1:11pm
·To start the meeting, we took a vote in favor of giving the money donated at the Navajo event last semester to the group that presented the documentary. The decision was unanimous among members. This is a bureaucratic measure to ensure that this is in the full benefit of the club and our philanthropic presence on campus.

· Café Bookmarks is this Thursday at 7:30pm in the English Common Room! That means today, assuming I get these minutes out around midnight. Please bring stories, poetry, and musical instruments and share your talents with the group! Reading some of your favorite works by famous authors is completely welcome as well.

1:15pm
· Next Thursday is our Stupid Cupid Valentine’s Day Party. This will be at 7:30pm in EN B121. It will be friend themed, so please don’t feel alienated by all this love nonsense. There will be fun games, a bake off(where we judge based on the appearance of your baked good), and a cupcake decorating contest.

1:18pm
· Finally, on February 21st at 4:30pm, we will be having an informational meeting about the upcoming Read-A-Thon event. This is to gauge campus interest in the event and to brainstorm ideas about what would be best to incorporate into it.

Meet your NEW officers

Hey everyone,
The semester is just about to start and we hope you’ve had a wonderful winter break or winter classes if you took any.
I just wanted to let you know that I have updated the Meet Your Officers page to reflect the new positions and new officer (Welcome, Rachel!) we have for Spring 2012.
This weekend Emilia and Rachel have attended the SCSU Leadership Retreat Weekend and we are very excited to start off the semester with new ideas and bring back the old favorites as well.
Check out the updates here: http://bookmarksscsu.wordpress.com/2011/08/31/meet-your-officers/

We will see you for our first meeting on Wednesday January 25 at 1:10pm. Look here, our twitter, or our facebook page for updates and confirmation on the meeting and future events.

Final Fall 2011 Meeting

In lieu of minutes, we have a few reminders from secretary, Geoff Troup:

1)  Tomorrow night is Study Night in the English Common Room!  We’ll have pizza and salad so come on out and eat some food.  After that we’ll get down to studying and working.  It’s our last event of the semester so come on out!

2) The very awesome Rachel Pelham was elected Treasurer for next semester, so congratulations Rachel and we’re excited to have you on (e)board.  Today was our last meeting with Jaime as VP so we want to thank her for her hard work and dedication and she will be missed.

3) We’ll send you another email when we know more about t-shirts, but if you haven’t given us a 5 dollar deposit please do so ASAP.  Most likely, they will be in sometime next week and we can arrange pick ups.  Otherwise, you can pick them up at the start of next semester.

 

Good luck on finals, everyone! Enjoy your break and read some good books!

·         Our last event of the semester will be a Study Night on December 8th at 7:30pm.  Dinner will be provided.  We’re thinking pizza and salad.  We do want this to primarily be an event where studying and working happens, so if you want to be social or talk to anyone feel free to do it in the English library.
·         This Friday is the last Folio reading of the semester.  It’s at 7:30pm in the fireplace lounge.  

1:13pm
·         T-shirts are ordered and on their way.  We’re asking anyone who wants a T-shirt togive us a deposit of 5 dollars by next Wednesday.  If they cost anymore we will let you know but at the moment only 5 dollars is due.  If you can’t make it to the meeting please talk to one of the eboard or shoot us an email.  Additionally, if you would like to remove your name from the list of people who want a shirt, please let us know.
1:18pm
·         With Jaime’s departure, we will be holding an election next week to fill the position of treasurer.  Next semester, George will remain as President and Geoff will remain as secretary.  Emilia will be the new Vice President and Erica will be Public Relations.  Currently only Rachel has volunteered to run for the position of treasurer, so if you are interested in running please let us know by Friday at the latest.  We will send out another email later on about voting through collegiatelink and the details associated with that.
If you have any comments or questions, email us at bookmarks@owls.southernct.edu
See you next week!
