Handbook lunches with M+M
M+M = Maddy and Mary BZ
Maddy and Mary met this week as they always do and it was lovely and Maddy loved it
IDEA WAS THOUGHT OF: Open lunch discussions about the handbook, what they think
Peter mentioned it would be helpful for some to not happen at lunches, esp. for people who are on co-op
Mary wants it to be an intentional discussion with people who have put thought into it, read the book, had specific ideas
People do already come to talk about it, but we want it to be a more open and intentional ask for feedback
Constitution Snack Night discussions
Similar to the lunchtime discussion, but at a snack night and about the constitution
Different members of the constitution committee would sit at tables and listen to feedback, write it down, and think about it
Want it to be a more intimate conversation, probably at the back of the caf
Other option: google survey to allow people to provide feedback
This way we can prompt more specific feedback
Example: 8-month LLT between fall and spring
Constitution committee is going to meet in the near future to discuss
KEEP UPDATING YO EVENTS! :)

The sheet is MIA :(
Only two people had signed it, “a custodian” and Theo
They both read both
Mix It Up Commie Sup
You enter the room, get a random table, go to that table!
PROS: meet new friends, fun times for all
CONS: not everyone likes to sit with people they don’t know, it’s confusing, people don’t all walk in at the same time
We need to man both doors
Idea: do this for the commie supper that LLT is running
Discussion will be prompted, it will be an out-of-the-ordinary supper anyway
Will this put people too far outside of their comfort zone
We don’t want to cut this discussion short
We could also do it when the UW president is here?
Mary cautioned against this, because it always starts late because of mix-it-up
What about next week?
Longer to sit at the dinner with people they don’t know?
Could be overwhelming for students
We could do March 6
THIS IS THE BEST OPTION! :)
We will decide HOW to mix-it-up at a later time
SLEF Funding - Due March 17th
How are we going to get feedback?
