- Agenda approval
- Kodie requests adding a point: Storytelling.
- Ashley requests: receipts.
- Agenda then approved.
- Approval of previous meeting’s minutes
- All Hallows’ Read
- Alisha (from Clubs and Associations) to approve posters. Val to bug her.
- Ashley allots $20 for a dollar store splurge.
- Shopping time to be determined between Ash and Val.
- Pumpkin donation by Dessa?!
- Thank you, most benevolent human-in-chief.
- To be a donation pumpkin for Louden?
- Refreshments (candy and maybe coffee)?
- Association re-registration
- Some form must be submitted to claim we still exist.
- This must happen before the end of November.
- Grad Chat, November 4
- 5 grads, who are doing stuff with their English degrees, explaining their stuff-doing.
- Speed-dating extravaganza to happen after that.
- ESA asked to do promotions via class visits and sharing the event on Facebook.
- This is put on by the Career Centre and English Department.
- Discussion point: Ashley smells nice.
- Peer tutoring/help for 100- and 200-level English students
- Different from peer mentoring: bridges the gap between peer mentoring and Writing Centre.
- Heidi: This sounds like the SLG.
- CCR opportunities.
- Heidi: is CCR becoming more of a thing?
- Kodie: Yes, it’s becoming more and more included nationwide.
- Ashley: We should have a contract with student mentors and ESA to prevent any perceived liability issues.
- Kodie had an idea for a nonfiction storytelling event: tell us about a fascinating/weird/beautiful/awful/[adjective ]thing that has happened in your life. He says he sees a lot of storytelling events like this happening in Vancouver, and there’s a cool podcast called The Moth, and a couple of CBC shows with a similar idea.
- Ashley: To make it good, we’d need criteria, a time limit, and maybe a panel of judges.
- The winner could get something like food or a drink or something.
- Anthony: This is like The Canterbury Tales!
- Kodie: Putting a TCB-spin on the event would be so rad.
- January might be a decent time to hold this event.
- Workshop opportunity: “how to tell an interesting story.”
- Val recommends talking to Raymond Welch and Michelle Riedlinger: they’re communication profs, and they know how to make a piece sparkle with awesome.
- Doing posters for this event would be a decent idea.
- Ashley still wants receipts.
- Did you buy a thing on behalf of ESA? Did you want to be reimbursed? Whoyagonnacall?
- Chorus of children : Ashley!
