Minutes for July 14, 2006
List of Participants
Decision: Bugdet of $100 for rental, further options still being explored.
Decision: Nils will contact them.
Decision: We will start late, between 7:30pm and 8:00pm given the circumstances.
Decision: We will ask the BoD to allow us to access membership information. Manuel as the BoD representative should take care of this. We will work out a strong proposal explaining why we need this information before we go ahead with this. On the other end we need to have a system in place that allows us to integrate interested new members quickly into our projects. For the time being we will update the "Welcome" message sent out automatically to new members. Parthi will contact BJ.
Career Development Initiative
Decision: Saraswathi will start a discussion/brain storming of what this should look like either on the wiki and send out an email to either all members or all leadership asking for their ideas.
Outreach / Web content
Idea: The Student Council should collect information about such events as BioSysBio on a world-wide scale and establish connections with the organizers of such events.
Idea: Nils proposed that the SC should grow organically by adding only few leaders at a time that can start working on a specific project right away. Otherwise we might end up in a situation similar to what were are in now - a lot of "leaders" on the paper but hardly anyone who is actively contributing (the trend positive though).
Decision: Venkata has access to the mailing list (currently about 30 subscribed). He will send out an email to all subscribed "leaders" asking them to reply within one week letting us know if they still can and want to contribute. Everyone who doesn't reply will be removed.
