Council Summaries Council Meeting Summary, May 3, 2017

Here are notes from the regular AMS Council meeting of May 3, 2017:

A New Council!  The newly elected (and much smaller) AMS Council held its first meeting and heard presentations about the new Committee structure and the online system for filling the Committees.

Remote attender: The new rules on remote attendance by Councillors in the summer came into effect, and Engineering representative Jakob Gattinger skyped in and took an active part in the meeting, challenging the chair and supplying background information on such things as where the Sustainability Projects Committee now fits in the Committee structure.

Committee restructuring continued: Council continued the process by approving a Code change to reduce the number of students at large on two committees, the rationale for which is that these two committees (Advocacy and Student Life) will be interacting with large numbers of students at large through two new groups: the Blue and Gold Society (for Student Life) and the Officers of Council (for Advocacy).

Safewalk: Council also approved a renewal of the agreement with the University on the AMS Safewalk service.

Next regular Council meeting: May 17, 2017 in the Forum in the Nest at 6 pm.
