A Few Things Chris Wants to Talk to Us About
Last year, Halloween Party came about because each chapter got a grant for an event.
Intention of grant is for Design oriented programs.
Intention of Halloween Party last yearwas to be a mixer with other schools. Was unsuccessful.
Last year, there was more communication with Chris - asking permission, month of planning.
There is a blatant lack of planning and permission.
Chris must deal with
Making and maintaining a safe, modern, clean studio space
Keeping Larry Stuckey in the know, keeping him happy
Appropriate utilization of studio space
Security concerns - must pay someone for extra security
External events - National Portfolio Day, Liberal Arts
Student mentality leads us to think we 'own' the building, mustn't lose sight of every other x,y, and z
AIGA Student Chapter Shrinkage
Membership smaller than last year, Seniors to blame, aren't getting enough back from it?
Sophomore opportunity to mix with upperclassmen and Design Community
Events we've held are not Design-sentric enough
Last week of drive - keep recruiting
Keep the combination of Social event and Design event
Chris rules out Halloween Party at 2:51 p.m.
We were uninformed of the rules of how program is submitted to the AIGA org.
Keep in mind the channels we must go through, move forward - don't feel punished
Only two of our planned events were socially oriented, the rest are Design oriented
Helpful to type of a newsletter to submit to the faculty
Remember to invite Jamie and Chris to meetings
Utilize the energy and excitement to propel forward to exciting events
Don't forget Chris and Jamie are here to help and guide
Allow Chris 3 - 4 weeks advance notice for all 'after hours' events on campus
Jamie needs to know ahead of time about necessary funding (budget proposal)
Early communication is key so events go smoothly
