Approval of Minutes

  • The minutes of the previous meeting were unanimously approved as distributed.

Open Issues

  • Summer Meetings – they were difficult to hold because of schedules.
  • This Year (2010/2011):
    • should streamline events – have a few successful events rather than all the traditional kin event
    • Kin Cup, clothing orders, Careers in Kin, and another social during spring semester
    • ? no year end party: not really successful, not enough money, usually only professors and graduates
    • ? Pub Night
  • Number 1 Priority = Clothing Order!!!
    • Supplier is willing to give us samples
      • Preferably before the holidays
    • Make sure we put time into it to talk to classes and promote
    • Need something different: ie. cool slogan or logo; creative stuff
      • Ideas: anatomy drawing – instead of labelling bones, use the branches of kin or the small/weird/obscure things that no one knows about; stick man drawing
  • Banner – has to be done through SFSS Copy Centre, must have SFSS logo on it
    • seems cheaper, can come out of core account
    • ? vertical pull out banner – easy to set-up but it rips easier
  • Website – still owe the designer money
    • need the president and treasurer to sign off on it
    • Lauren hopefully heading it up later
  • Clubs Day – ? should we have a table: Wednesday for sure, and Tuesday/Thursday
    • at this point no tables are booked – if no tables are booked, talk to classes about BPKSA
    • have name tags that say: “Ask me if you want to get involved in the BPKSA”
  • Welcome Back BBQ – Tuesday, September 21 from 11:30am – 1:00pm
    • arrive early to help set-up (10:30/11:00)
    • don’t necessarily need a table, just talk to people
  • Kin Cup – ? wait until after the clothing order so we have some money
    • if we can get money from our core account, we can do it this semester


  • Meeting was adjourned at 2:10pm by John Abreu-Lanza. The next meeting will be the week of September 13th in the Kinesiology Seminar Room at a time to be determined.
