  1. Planning to revise web presence

    Sara Mason, Chantelle Hicks, and Morgan White discussed revisions to the Bee Campus USA web presence. For ease of maintenance, the iCAP Portal seems to be a more friendly process for providing updates and keeping the web content current and active.  Sara could do the entries this year, and future students could do entries in the future years.  The updates can also be shared on other websites, when requested.  Sara will bring this idea back to the student committee, for a decision.

  2. Students for Equal Access to Learning (SEAL) Fee Renewal Referenda Questions

    The final version for the student ballot about the renewal of the Bicycle Programs and Infrastructure Fee is attached.  CSEC accepted all of the recommended changes. The goals for this revision are to clearly inform the voter about how the fee will be assessed and spent, to appropriately frame the result of the vote as advisory, and to introduce consistency across other referenda questions on fee renewal.
