Notes from 4/6 meeting

Here's what we decided at the meeting on 4/6:
  • Come to the Storytelling Festival on Monday, April 18, where we will show support for our student storytellers (including yours truly and ALA student member Deni Buendorf) and collect names/promote our group. Complete info to follow.
  • We will continue to meet weekly until the end of the semester (which means we're meeting tomorrow--post forthcoming).
  • We will continue to meet on a different schedule TBD during summer term.
  • Helena is checking with the SGO on possible funding sources.
  • The general outline of activities for the next year is below, and it's important that we now nail down some dates and deets.
Spring/Summer 2011
  • End of the year Happy Hour
