Christmas in October (Kellyann)

4.

Propose a change to the bylaws (Kellyann)



To make the 3 meetings rule part of the bylaws


an organization
must attend 3 meetings in the semester to be eligible for funding the
next semester. This is an important rule to hold people accountable
for our money, and to find out how they are using it.




The proposed changes were handed out at the meeting and had been
emailed out prior to the meeting as well.



Discussion



i.

What if only 3 meetings were held that semester? What about
inclement weather? Response


if these groups have 70 people
in their gr
oup like many of them claim, they can make it to 3
meetings. This is a very stable group that v
ery rarely has ever
canceled a
meeting.

ii.

What if the groups don’t know, have poor leaders? That is why
we are adding it to the bylaws.



Agreed to
add a clause th
at extenuating circumstances would be
evaluated by the executive board. Also agreed to make sure Ryan Gove
included the rule in his emails and roundtable discussions with group
leaders.



Vote


27 yes, 0 no. Bylaw amendment passed.

5.

Budget (Alex)



Point was

made that according to the bylaws, we cannot fund
unregistered groups. Food is Medicine and Muslim Student
Association lost eligibility.



Several groups submitted their funding requests late. Voted whether
or not to consider them as eligible for funding.
3 ways to vote were
presented:

i.

Allow them to be eligible for full funding


11

ii.

Allow them to be eligible, but only for partial funding


8

iii.

Don’t allow them to be eligible at all


2

iv.

Point was made very clearly that next semester things would
not be as leni
ent, and late requests would not be funded.



Went through budget line by line. Each group introduced themselves
and explained what they needed the money for.



Discussion about how a grou
p must have graduate students as

part of
it in order to be eligible fo
r funding. Emails from these groups must
also be broadcast to everyone, not just medical students.

i.

Vote held concerning Pathology Student Interest group as to
whether or not to fund them, since the group was mostly
geared toward medical students. 13
-
6 the

decision was made
to not fund them.

ii.

Also discussion about American Medical Women’s
Association’s eligibility. A grad student present decided to be
part of that group, so they are now eligible. No vote needed.



Budget was approved, 21
-
0



Finalized budget a
nd groups that will be funded will be posted
separately.

6.

Final comments (Kellyann)



The Executive Board this year will be evaluating the groups receiving
funding, the types of events they use the money for and the number of
people actually participating. Asked all groups to keep track of events
that use the GSC money and to keep a roster
at all meetings/events.
