Hi Everyone,

Here are the minutes from Tuesday’s meeting. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the meeting and for those with time conflicts please make sure to read these so you can catch up!

1. Roadside clean-up will be this Friday, September 24th, at 4:30 pm. We will meet in the lobby of JHS at 4:15 and will be departing at 4:30 sharp, so please do not be late! We have all of the equipment necessary so just dress appropriately for the weather (if it is drizzling we will still go but if it seems like it will be pouring look out for an e-mail from one of the officers). In case your wondering why we do this activity, our ACS chapter has adopted a short stretch of route 68 just a few miles from campus. As a club we spend one afternoon every fall to clean up this piece of land as our contribution to preserving our community. It is actually really fun and shouldn’t take too long – remember that many hands make light work!

2. We have a new blog! blogs.stlawu.edu/slusaacs/. All of the minutes, molecule of the week, upcoming events and officer contact information will be logged on this site. It will also be linked off the chemistry website. This is a really great way to stay posted on club information. Eventually we hope to have discussion boards which can be used to facilitate committee discussion when planning events.

3. We discussed taking a trip to Ottawa to visit the science museum and national gallery. This would be a day trip – possibly the first Saturday in November. One of the officers will likely get van certification so we can all ride together. We would spend the morning visiting the museum and grab some lunch and would plan to be back in Canton early evening. Matt is working on the logistics/organization of this outing so we will have more info coming up.

4. Finally, we have discussed about a collaboration with Tri-Beta (the biology honors society) to host a science scholar’s reception. Some things to think about: location, sign-up method, advertising, catering, fund raising, dress code, etc. This is a very new idea but would be a great way to gather science faculty, upperclassman science students, and students new to the department. The officers are going to make a few phone calls to try to get more information about planning this event but your thoughts/suggestions are appreciated as we move forward with the idea. The tentative date for this event is the Thursday or Friday the week before finals week in December.

That’s all for now! Let me know if you have any questions about Friday. See you all then!
Jillian, Andrew, Matt, Ryan, and Danielle
