• There was a motion to recognize the American Marketing Association (AMA) as a club. AMA had been a club previously, but was dormant after a lack of interest. Due to the new marketing minor, members looked to have the club reinstated. The club plans to have a “marketing week” in October where they bring in people from Fortune 500 companies to talk with members and the outside community. They also intend to attend an annual conference in New Orleans in the spring where members would work with their advisor on a case study and submit it to a competition. The club currently has 20 members who have paid their $30 campus dues and $47 national dues. Members are also looking at teaming up with local businesses to help put together an audit and help with social media and web presence. The motion to approve AMA as a club was passed.

Senatorial Open Forum
• Senator Melat Kiros spoke about inconsistencies concerning when the executive board was notified of their payroll changes. “Taylor told Senate Aug. 24, but I have memos in my possession that are from the Business Office from Aug. 10 and 15,” she said. She said that the raises agreed upon by the Senate last year were “good practice” but these recent changes were not good practice. “We have a choice in the matter,” she said.
