CSEG Board Meeting 2010-08-05
Date: August 5, 2010 Present: Jesh (Vice-President) Anna (Tea Chair) Quang (Grad/Fac Rep) Mona (Social Chair) Timur (IM Chair) Kaustubh (Secretary) Quentin (Faculty Advisor) Absent: Benji (President) Nate (Outreach Rep) Shiwali (DCO Rep) Minutes: - Joho has been named the new GSAC/GSF representative, because Dawn needs a name. - The EECS servers are inaccessible from outside through Comcast and this issue needs to be brought to DCO's attention. Jesh has already sent a mail as of this writing. - Jesh will check that we still have the $300 allocated for a gas-grill, and will look to buy it before Sep 7, which is when the beginning of the year barbeque will be. - Peer-counselling: 2 sessions will need to be held. The tentative dates are Sep 2 (Thursday, before classes begin) and Sep 8/10 (Wed/Fri, after classes begin). Dates will be finalized by Dawn. We may merge the 2nd session with the Happy Hour. Also, Jesh will send a mail, asking for volunteers to head the sessions, with at least one person from each of the 5 areas (UI is an added area this year), and hopefully, one Masters student too. - Panel session @ orientation: CSEG board members can fill the panel for that session. - A Happy Hour has been scheduled during the 1st week of classes, for Sep 9/10 (Thu/Fri), depending on whether we are able to book a room at a bar for an evening. As usual, we intend to have free appetizers, and people may buy alcohol on their own. - Mona and Timur will shop for the snacks for the peer counselling sessions and food for the barbeque. - We decided to try out buying $10 gift-cards from Panera for the 1st 2 months of the semester, to incentivize people to organize tea. Anna will get the gift-cards. Action Items: Jesh: Mail DCO about EECS accessibility problems via Comcast (done!), mail asking for volunteers for peer-counselling sessions, and buy a gas-grill. Anna: Buy about 4-8 gift-cards from Panera. Mona, Timur: Shop for food/snacks for barbeque/peer-counselling sessions respectively. Quang: Reserve a room at one of the bars for Sep 8-9, for the Happy Hour.
