After discussing why you all should go to NatCon! We had a well thought out seminar on helping out Caroline O’Malley with her startup pepband down in Pueblo! Here are some major points! (You can read the full minutes here)

  • Exposing 10 high school students from Swallows Chapter Academy to music!
  • Pueblo has limited resources in terms of music supplies, difficulties
  • We should buy permanent items for the students, not rentals so that we aren’t entitled to rent for these students every year
  • Although we have a large budget, it will be tight because of Convention front
  • Final Discussed Idea: $750 to give to Caroline, everything has to be permanent, buying school-owned instruments, stay within school, we will reimburse, have her send us everything she wants to buy, give receipts, transactions will be posted online to chapter, everything will directly contribute to playing music
  • Vote to approve money towards Caroline’s Project: Motion passed!!

We then voted on the theme for Band Banquet!

After considering several awesome ideas with crowd favorites of “lamp” and the trio, “Clue (the game)”, “Clue (the movie)”, and “Murder Mystery”, we picked . . . drum roll please. . .(we can’t tell you yet because it’s going to be a surprise)! It’s going to be super awesome everybody so talk to Carrie or Conner if you want to help out!

But seriously…don’t tell

Here are some announcements/updates from your executive team!

  • Please change your profile pictures on Facebook to this photo! It only has to stay for this week and it will help recruit brothers, so please do!Image may contain: text
  • Remember this week that you must attend at least two recruitment week events in order to vote on the future brothers!
  • If you know someone who would make a good brother, please invite them to the events on Facebook or talk to them in person.
  • Ritual dates will be put in the calendar by the end of today! The dates are: Feb 4th, 25th, and Mar 11th. These will take place in the Music Theater.
  • Thank you to Colby, Jack, and Gabi for volunteering to be the point-people for flowers for band banquet! #cweetHULU tv snl nbc saturday night live GIF
  • Regarding the Houston project, Tate Carrie, and Kristina got to meet with the band director and discuss some more information regarding the list of items she requested.
    • A majority of the items on the list will be covered by insurance luckily. The items she needs the most are auxiliary percussion instruments.
      • For these instruments, she gave us possible vendors to purchase these instruments from in the Houston area.
    • Kristina will be working to get a video put together with collaboration from the band director.
  • In addition to today’s agenda, we discussed and voted on the probationary status of some members who have missed more than 3 meetings. They will be required to attend every meeting up to the elections while completing three of the digitization events.

Most importantly, we discussed the mid-semester check in results, so here are some of the main points of discussion we had:

  • Our brothers’ well-being is fairly good! We do have some brothers on the negative end of the spectrum, so please be considerate of other people. Not everyone is doing so great, so make sure you know this!
  • People generally feel good about how Kappa is going and what Kappa has been doing this year differently than others. People do rate their personal involvement in the middle of the road but people feel valued and respected for their opinions!
  • We discussed Round Robin – is a way to get more people to speak or taking to much time? We talked about next semester being a time to experiment with other means of input from the chapter, including Google Surveys, etc.
    • In addition to experimentation next semester, the idea of maybe bi-weekly meetings came up with extra committee time during the week. In addition, some requests for the minutes/notification by email were suggested.
  • We discussed how attendance to outside activities tends to be the same amount of people every single time and with little exec representation.
    • Maybe we should be doing more activities on more days of the week?
  • We also discussed getting people more involved. Some people have really good ideas but also need to remember that they can take initiative for their own projects! If you’re interested in starting something, don’t be afraid to ask!
    • Shoutout to Colby for helping start a caroling group! christmas will ferrell elf revolving door GIF
  • For next week, we will discuss some more information regarding changing the meeting time and other comments that were made towards the end of the survey.

That’s all for this week! Thank you all for all that you do and I hope that you guys have an amazing week!
