Meeting Minutes

Monday March 9, 2015



The meeting of the BPKSA was called to order by Loryn at 12:30 pm in the BPK Conference Room


In attendance:

Ian, Steven M, Josh, Garrett, Sam, Deepak, Jordan, Bogdan, Ashly, Loryn, Shaila, Garveen, Matt, Steven O, Megan,


Open Issues:



-orders went in today & extra clothing was ordered which we can reserve for next year to show people the sizing

-ordered about 74 dryfits and 74 crewnecks (the new clothing additions proved to be very popular)

-the brain design t-shirts was not as popular and only 6 were bought; we need a minimum 24 to actually order them so therefore we will inform the individuals who bought the brain design that we won’t be ordering them

-we will offer them other clothing or refund their money

-Chose double printing this year on the clothing to increase quality of the designs

-date of the orders coming in: TBA

-Josh sent in all the designs and the clothing orders; the company will make a mock up design and will send a draft to Josh which will show what it will look like

-we’ll also be paying duty since it is from the USA & we won’t have the clothing shipped to a PO box since shipping to Canada is free and since duty has to be paid regardless


Year End Party

-the doodle poll results from the faculty are in: Thursday, April 9th and Friday, April 10th are the dates that work best for the faculty

-the issue with Friday the 10th is that Club Ilia will charge $25 a head and we’ll need a minimum of 100 people

-a tally was taken in the meeting to determine which date(s) we can make; April the 2nd won with 14 people being able to make it compared to 10 for April the 10th

-Ashly will coordinate with Club Ilia and book it



-March 23rd, 5:30-7:30 pm; anyone can attend the event but we need to try and keep it within the department as best as we can to promote student faculty interactions

-we cannot have the score clock since the score clocks are brand new (older ones were rented out and returned damaged)

-we can have the flip score boards and a timer display instead

-updating trophy: we can update it after KIN Cup so only 1 trip has to be made

-Grant: need to have the grant drafted ASAP

-Josh will draft it; Steven will send the stats from last year to determine

how many people may attend and how much to apply for

-we need to do class presentations next week and in addition promote BPK Research Day

-make sure to only advertise the poster presentations that will be following

the oral presentations and the keynote speakers

-Class Presentations: for next week

-aim more for 100 level courses like BPK 140, 142, 143

-Loryn will send an email to faculty & follow up with this
