Old Business:

Discussion over Brian's proposal.

Br. Frazier suggests the following bylaw:

To distinguish between programming events and independent events held at the manor, I propose that the following be added to the bylaws.

Any brother may hold an independent event at the manor. The brother who requests the event will be known as the "Event's Brother." The event's brother will receive scheduling clearance from either the president, vice president, programming chair, or secretary. The programming chair will then have the event's brother recite the Oath of the Independent Event. The event's brother will hoist up his left hand (or in the event that he is without a left hand, any hand possessed by the brother to his left) and recite:

"I state your name do hear by swear or affirm that I will take all responsibility for the actions, arsons, and abominations, of my event. I will ensure conformity to all applicable rules, and maintain no more than six llamas at a given fire exit."

The Programming Committee will then respond, in a manner resembling a currently relevant song genre, or by default Gregorian Chant: "You may now have yourself a party."

Br. Brian moves to amend the question by replacing all text.

Motion passes

New wording reads:

Any brother may hold an independent event at the manor. The brother who requests the event will be known as the "Event's Brother." The event's brother will, in closed meeting, request from everyone permission and internally recognized presumption of responsibility for the event. All will be aware that such internal responsibility can only be relevant in the eyes of the chapter, not Nationals, IFC, OU, or OUPD. This does not change any rule or authority. The programming chair will then have the event's brother recite the Oath of the Independent Event. The event's brother will hoist up his left hand (or in the event that he is without a left hand, any hand possessed by the brother to his left) and recite:


"I state your name do hear by swear or affirm that I will take all responsibility for the actions, arsons, and abominations, of my event. I will ensure conformity to all applicable rules, and maintain no more than six llamas at a given fire exit."

The Programming Committee will then respond, in a manner resembling a currently relevant song genre, or by default Gregorian Chant: "You may now have yourself a party."

The event's brother shall ensure adequate drinks and snacks are available.

Br. Sheppard moves to remove the words "in a manner resembling a currently relevant song genre, or by default Gregorian Chant:"

Br. Zarachoff moves to add the wording "The event's brother must provide adequate amenities to guests of the event as agreed upon by programming committee and the event's brother. Furthermore, the event's brother will be responsible for adequate cleanup before and after the event." to the end of the proposal.

Motion passed.

Br. Brandt moves to replace the wording "I will take all responsibility for the actions, arsons, and abominations, of my event." with "I will take all responsibility for conduct of my event.".

Motion passes.

The main motion is tabled.

Main Motion currently reads:

Any brother may hold an independent event at the manor. The brother who requests the event will be known as the "Event's Brother." The event's brother will, in closed meeting, request permission and internally recognized presumption of responsibility for the event. All will be aware that such internal responsibility can only be relevant in the eyes of the chapter, not Nationals, IFC, OU, or OUPD. This does not change any rule or authority. The programming chair will then have the event's brother recite the Oath of the Independent Event. The event's brother will hoist up his left hand (or in the event that he is without a left hand, any hand possessed by the brother to his left) and recite:

"I state your name do hear by swear or affirm that I will take all responsibility for the conduct of my event. I will ensure conformity to all applicable rules."

The event's brother must provide adequate amenities to guests of the event as agreed upon by programming committee and the event's brother. Furthermore, the event's brother will be responsible for adequate cleanup before and after the event.
