President's Report:

Recruit. Chair:

Someone managed to get one test turned in, but it wasn't anyone in the chapter. So please turn in your tests.

HM:
We have community towels now, so we need to figure out some rules on use and where we want to put them.

Steward:
Next week is Breakfast for Dinner.

Resident Manager:

Appointed Officer Reports:
Social Chair:


Librarian:

ASK/Triangle Liaison:



Philanthropy Chair:

Webmaster:


Old Business:

Minutes will be posted [once I stop being lazy].



New Business:
We were discussing some restructuring of the actives during Retreat, and we now have a written copy of how the active organization will be restructured. Almost all positions will now be committees, with the Executive Council consisting of the President, Treasurer, Secretary, and the five committee leaders. We will discuss later about whether or not the Programming Chair should be an elected position or not. This committee plan will be edited with brothers' inputs, and we will be making these changes at the end of the semester [Fall 2010], so this will come into effect next semester [Spring 2011].

A trial period is starting this week; so please get with your committees this week and see what you can get done.

Also, we are implementing a point system for next semester. Once again, this will need some rewriting from brothers' inputs. Basically, it means each brother needs to earn a certain amount of points each semester in order to remain an active. Brothers will earn points by attending business meetings and aftermeetings, attending philanthropy events, etc.

Also, Daylight Savings.
