September General Meeting

September General Meeting

September 20, 2022

We opened up our meeting with Megan Gold. She talked about her time at OU as well as being Miss Oklahoma. She gave some advice on making connections and just soaking everything in including just having fun while being in college. She said that the best thing you can do while in college is to ask questions and ask for help.

Jacob Terrell also came to speak about the National Weather Museum and Science Center. 

Tyler Bell also came to talk about his work with BLISS. Tyler is a research scientist at CIWRO who works with BLISS. Bliss is looking for people interested to help with UAS work including coptorsondes and damage assessment. They are currently looking for people with a Part 107 license or people interested in getting one to come help fly drones. They are also looking for people to assist with operations. If you are interested, please reach out to Tyler! 

The OU Westheimer Aviation Festival is looking for volunteers on October 1st from 9AM-2PM! They will have free breakfast! The Weather Friends will also be in attendance, so if you are interested, please reach out to Kaitlyn.

Little Event will be October 22nd from 9AM-12PM. We are doing an OU Met. Organizations group again, so if you’d like to volunteer, please sign up!

We will be having our September social event at Pink Berry on September 22nd! This will also be a benefit night for us, so please bring friends – even if they aren’t in SCAN! 

The Freshman also voted on the Freshman Representative. The Freshman Representatives for the 2022-2023 school year are Reagan Mendeke and Ethan Stroberg!

Synopsis (Meeting Minutes):

Per our constitution, all OU SCAN leaders are required to attend mandatory yearly Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion training. As per a vote during this meeting, you are expected to attend all of them, but you must attend 2/3 of them at a minimum. If you cannot attend regardless of any reason, you must contact the SCAN President and Vice Presidents, and A&GS Assistant Dean via a formal email to explain why you cannot attend the training. This amendment passed with 10 in favor and 0 against.

We now have an Apparel/Fundraiser Chair! Jack Shumaker will be appointed to this role.

Our September General Meeting is September 20th from 5-7:30 PM. We will be getting Papa Johns with salads. Megan Gold will be speaking from 6-7:30 and we will be eating in the atrium from 5-6PM. The cost for food will be roughly $165. 

We are currently looking for companies to print t-shirts and have a couple of options. We could continue to talk with ID Solutions and try to figure out a plan, or we could have our apparel fundraiser now with a SoM friendly design and go through a cheap printing vendor, pay the difference, and then sell as much as we want. 

The abstract for AMS has been submitted! All officers will be listed as authors, but you must have an AMS account to be added. Once you have created an AMS account, please let Kaitlyn know!
