Open Issues

  • Year End Party:
    • 7 tickets have been sold so far (5 professors and 2 students)
    • Darleen mentioned that some people did not realize this event is the year end party (possible reason for low ticket sales?)
    • We will forfeit the $1000 deposit if the event is cancelled
    • The $1000 can be taken from core (Blaine will get the receipt for DAC in order to get the money from core)
    • Band has been booked for $400
    • Possibilities:
      • We can have a small event on a week day at DAC and the $1000 will cover it (if scaled down, we need to change day (Thursday?)
      • Change location of event (Club Ilia?)
      • Push event to September (can we transfer $1000 deposit)
      • Dinner for union members and profs and students who have purchased tickets (smaller scale during week at DAC)
    • DAC needs the payment for the confirmed number by Sunday
    • If we cancel the event, we may lose credibility with the faculty and staff, but we don’t want an embarrassing event
    • Final Decision: Take another week to see how ticket sales go, need 50/60 tickets sold to not cancel, cancel if not sold
    • Next year: year end party after clothing order (confirmed funding)
