Council Summaries Council Meeting Summary, October 26, 2016

Here are notes from the regular AMS Council meeting of October 26, 2016:

Movember: Council heard a presentation about the annual moustache-growing campaign in support of men’s health.

Budget Committee: Council named Nika Moeni as the new chair of the Budget Committee.  VP Finance Louis Retief said the committee will be working on changes to the bylaws to reflect the new structure of the AMS, the revamping of the Society’s finances, and the extension of the Budget Committee’s mandate to financial matters beyond the budget.

Fitness in the Old SUB: AMS President Ava Nasiri announced that UBC has agreed to build a fitness space in the Old SUB for next fall, in accordance with a request from the AMS.

Excellence Fund: Ava reported that the AMS has managed to get the University to include the AMS in consultations for the use of the fund.

Pie R Squared: The Archivist noted that November will be the 25th anniversary of the AMS pizza place.

The EUS Eatery: Council passed a motion requiring the Executive to provide updates to the Engineering Undergraduate Society about the proposed contract for the food outlet in their building.

AGM:  AMS President Ava Nasiri reminded Council about the upcoming annual general meeting.

Council restructuring:  Marium Hamid, the AMS Special Projects Assistant for Governance, asked Council members to respond to a survey about changing the structure of Council.  Proposed changes would reduce the number of Council members from the larger Constituencies (such as Arts and Science) and combine some of the smaller Constituencies (like Nursing and Pharmacy) for the purposes of Council representation.

Next regular Council meeting: November 9, 2016 in the Forum at 6 pm.
