OFFICER REPORTS

President:
If you were on the list of people I sent out this week, please pay those fees. Most of you have done that but I need to get that finished.
Quick update, I am an idiot about chapter endowment fund. I never hit submit. But that is convenient because Fauts is buying new tables and chairs, which is what most of the money was going to be spent on anyway.. The best thing we can do now is get the printer and save the rest for next semester. I will go ahead and use the form from last time to take more suggestions.
Korth: I think we should also consider a UPS for the wifi closet.
There is a non-zero chance that he is also going to upgrade the wifi, during which we could consider that as well.

VP:
Congratulations to the new FNGs. Br. White Board Eraser I need you to erase the whiteboard. Thanks for all of your help during I-Week.

Secretary:
New guys, you should have gotten an email earlier inviting you to be a part of the actives mailing list. I need to you to go to your email today and confirm that invitation. After that you will start getting emails with meeting minutes. Please read through the meeting minutes each week and let me know if you see any errors. If you are an FNG please DM me "I saw it in the minutes". I will also get you all added to the calendar. If you didn’t give me a gmail address I will need that to get you added (Jordan, Thomas, Ty). All of the information you sent me in that survey is now in the drive, along with all of the other current active members.

Treasurer:
4th payment of dues is due next week.

Risk Management:
Nobody died.

Recruitment:
I know some people were talking about summer rush, so get with me if you are interested in helping with that. I will also start on the plan for next semester soon.
Trujilo: I do know that Blue was interested in a LAN party towards the end of the semester.

New Member Educator:
Yeah, so, I don’t know where the current pledge class is, but the FNGs are really cool.

Academics:
If you have come to me about getting help and I suggested someone for you to reach out to, please let me know how that is going. I can approach them for you if necessary. As we are heading into finals I want you guys to be feeling as relaxed and prepared as possible. It is a crazy time with finals and having to totally move all of your belongings, so let’s make this as stress free as possible. If there are classes you will need help with next semester, please see me and we can get started on that right now.

Social:
So, we have an event on Saturday at 10, and the volunteer list is pretty filled up. 6PM that day we will be having a cookout with ASK. We will make meat, they will bring sides. Might do a loot and XP event sometime during the week.

Philanthropy:
We will be doing a Triangle Big Event this saturday. Anyone interested please find and like the message so I can get a head count.

House Manager:
So people that are going alum, I have put out some mugs that I couldn’t identify or are yours, so do something with those. The cabinet is getting too full. I am going to repeat what I said last week. So, we are getting down to the last weeks of classes, please take all of your food with you so I don’t have to clean that out. If you leave it Neal can technically refuse to give you your security deposit back, so just take care of your stuff.

House Director:
If you have not signed your lease for the fall 2019 semester please get with me. I will continue to be house director for the next three semesters. I will be managing the lease situation.

BoD President:
I know that two people wanted to go to my meeting tomorrow at 3, you should look more like me. Not formal like Vikas, and not like Adam. Somewhere in between. I want to meet here at 2 so we can get there a little early. A guy already has a parking lot lined up and we will be talking with one of the city planners. We will be getting furniture this summer. I will discuss the number of seats we want in the living and dining room. We should get around 48 seats in here. Every room will get a twin bed, and the double rooms will get bunk beds. If you want to have a queen sized bed, that is fine, but the other will stay in there too. So he has a website he is going on with different styles. There is going to be a BoD meeting on June 5th at 12:30 PM. You can call in if you want to. Will discuss 40th founders day and all of the details about that. Also the Master Lease situation so please if you have any concerns send them my way. That document is terrible.

Athletics Chair:
Yeet.

Historian:
I posted initiation pictures on social media. The slideshow could have been longer if we had taken more pictures. I should have delegated others to take more pictures when I couldn’t be there. But, if you are at an event, just take a picture and send it to the historian. I can’t be at everything so this will allow us to have a more robust chapter history in the drive and on social media. The slideshow is on the drive.

Steward:
Thai Delight for dinner. People in the past have parked at the last place in the lot, and that is not a spot. If you park there, it will not allow others to leave. Just don’t park there.

Superintendent:
A lot of you have been asking me about the leases and move in/move out. If you are living in over the summer the I can go ahead and check you in. It will be the same process as any other time. If you are checking out I will be here all of finals week except that saturday. Then if you are not living in this summer but signed a lease for next semester, then you can store your stuff in one of the rooms. So, if we get new furniture then I will need to get everything out, so get your furniture out. Joseph has a weird obsession with dogs. There will be people coming in that aren’t brothers. Don’t leave things out that would be really easy to take. All of the rooms will be locked except for when I go in to put the new furniture in. I will be the only one that goes in and out. There will be no parking right next to the house, but the fence should be fine. If you have stuff in your furniture, please get that out so I don’t have to just leave it there.

Old Business:


New Business:

Pass Meeting Minutes - Passes

Announcements:
Arleth: I spent $.78 to pay for the pledge tests. I tried to request that from the venmo, but I accidentally payed it to venmo, so the chapter owes me $1.56.
Maddra: There will be a competition in May.
Cooper: Jeff Knaus is having a software position opening up on his team, so get in touch with him.
Midkiff: So everyone who bet money that any of the pledges wouldn’t get through on the first try, owes me money.
Franklin: I’d like to say the same thing as Darren.
