SPJ Meeting Minutes: 11/28

Fancy Ball

General notes

Reminder that the meetings take place in room 601B at 5:15

Students aren’t necessarily aware that they can check the TVs in the lobby, so how can we spread the word? (Also, why are all the labs booked on Mondays?)

Would love some sort of platform for people to share their thoughts about the program so far

Could we have extended reporting workshops in the spring?

Events

Holiday party Wednesday, Nov. 29, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. needs volunteers; contact Vildana for more

Fancy BallPossible alumni mentor event would be INCREDIBLY helpful — does it get better, what do we need to know in the “real world” versus what we are learning, etc.

Lucille’s Ball (It’s happening this weekend, so it gets its own tab!)

Make your friends buy tickets! — $25 for pictures, a drink, food, etc.

If you’re tabling this week (PLEASE volunteer if you can!), use the “point of sale” ap and

We’ve sold 33 tickets; we need to sell 195 to breakeven

Selling merch while tabling

The photographer is ready! Pics will go on social media and people can tag themselves

Can everyone do 30 minutes at the door? Shifts will be two people at a time

People need to check in to get drink tickets

No selling tickets at the door — the final day is Friday to get tickets

Communications

Nothing for this week!

Positions and Committees

Tulika spoke with Coronel, Huff and Shapiro about trainings — they will reach out for us to do publicity (Tulika should contact Juliana for this)

Academic surveys are on the way — Tulika will talk to Kasiana about last year’s surveys, what should go on them (accessibility of equipment and lab times, August bootcamp, reporting, what classes should be taught when)

For future
