One Thing: Expect the unexpected. Know that you may have to manage internal conflict. Most important way to do this is to be compassionate

Transparency - notification of when they received the appeal.

Timing of the email: CAPS information - you can’t put resources that are not available.
If they overturn the decision, a link to the original decision.
“Christ the redeemer” quote from Neil.
PR Standpoint - Communication for the parents of students.
One Thing: Trust in the process. ASG is very process oriented. It can work in your favor or against you.
Finance Vice President
Ben came in during spring break!
Turning Point has it’s own bank account under the Development Office for their donations.
Amount of donations unknown.
This is not normal - account donations usually go straight to their club funds.
SAFC coming up
Let Lauren know of any requests for events coming up - can be requested from SAFC to be permanently placed in the budget.
Upset that it took an entire quarter to appoint a person
Option for Proposed Solution: Make the Chief Justice the permanent rep for ASG
Reasoning: Chief Justice is already getting paid a lot, not too much of another commitment to add
Important to have representation every quarter

One thing she wish she knew: More about the administration and their involvement in student affairs and ASG. Was only familiar w/ASG.
Knew more about managing a team!
