“WHERE ELSE DO YOU START?”

ENGAGEMENT

  • Weekly rotating meetings – Having weekly board meetings at each campus.

  • Accessibility – recording, and publicizing meeting minutes and document in an easy location.

  • Event and project Sustainability – Created board mandated activities need to be transitioned out of the board and into their own for continuity.

  • Website upgrades – Developing a Community page.

TRANSPARENCY

  1. In-Camera Sessions – The use of in camera should be reduced given the need to have better access to information to our membership.

  2. Build SFU isn’t a very transparent project to the membership

ACCOUNTABILITY

1)Equitable funding allocation – Student groups have to overdeliver on events with little funding, while the Board can easily spend frivolously on its own interest.

2) Representativeness – The board should not make decisions on behalf of groups who have not given requested consent.

3) Forum & Council

There needs to be a continued platform for clubs to keep board accountable.

4) Financial decisions which have significant effects on students should be communicated with clarity in messaging.
