Anvisha PaiSustainability (Vice Chair)First meeting: Introductions, brainstorming topics
Second meeting: Project allocation, meeting with a representative of the Energy Club to brainstorm on collaboration ideas
Our broad project areas are as follows:
Dorm Outreach/Education
Campus Energy Efficiency
Competitions (eg Recyclemania)
Paperless Curriculum
Recycling
Composting

We've started collecting information and establishing initial contacts for a few of these projects.
Email out to different parties involved in each project, and start formulating a timeline/set of goals for each. Some of them are heavily dependent on initial fact-finding (e.g. : Paperless curriculum, where we still have to figure out whether it's a viable idea). Since all of our members (except the 2 vice chairs and the chair) are new, we also plan to share our previous information and tactics with them.

Alex HallTreasurer, Finboard ChairAppeals to Finboard have been considered by committee members and we will have office hours this week, and then present the approved appeals to Senate.
