January Officer Meeting

January 21, 2020

Our officer meetings this semester will be the first Tuesday of every month at 6pm in the board room (NWC 1120). 

A Tiebreaker Clause was proposed to our Constitution in the case of ties during our general elections, and will be voted on tonight. A unanimous decision (11 yays, 0 nays) was made to pass this clause, and it is now accepted into our Constitution. Soon the Constitution will be available on the SCAN website for anyone to read. 

REU and Hollings workshop is nearing, January 24th at 3pm with Daphne Ladue, Liz Leitman, and past REU/Hollings scholars. It’s structured similar to the Grad App help sessions, and will provide information and a run down on how to be a good candidate.

Groundhog Day is also coming up Tuesday, January 28th at 6:30pm at O’Connell’s Irish Pub on Campus Corner. Karaoke and a DJ will be present, with plenty of food options, and drinks for those 21 and up. 

February 5th is our next event, co-hosted with the Oklahoma Weather Lab. It’ll be a Hurricane Forecasting Workshop through Skype with Dr. Michael Brennan, and food/drinks will be provided. It will be a packed few weeks, because we also have a general meeting February 11th with Dr. Somer Erickson, the FEMA Liaison to the SPC, over Disaster Risk and Response, co-hosted with COCAMS/NWA. Food and drinks will also be provided with this meeting.

A 10 year time capsule will be put together by the February 11th meeting, more info to come later.

We have many objectives for this coming year, and we are excited to accomplish more as a growing Student Chapter in 2020.
