  1. Message from Vice Chair Of Communications

Hello Golden Bears, my name is Eric Manzo and I will be your Vice Chair of Communications for the 2019-2020 school year! I am sending out this agenda in case you were unable to attend our meeting tonight, or because you were not able to hear everything (or anything) that was discussed at the meeting. Additionally, here is a spreadsheet with all of the ExComm members and their respective emails. If you have any questions about the Committee, or what a specific position does, do not hesitate to reach out to any or all of us!

  1. Anonymous Feedback Form

This year we will be putting out this form so members can submit anonymous feedback for the executive committee to address. If an issue is brought up that we believe would benefit from group discussion it will be brought up during pre-meetings. Use this space to speak freely about events, actions the committee takes, or offer suggestions to improve ourselves. It is Claire and Eric that will be going through these. If you have any questions please bring them up to your VC of Communications or any member of Board.
