At the final ASWC senate meeting of the Fall 2013 semester, Japanese Cooking Club’s request for ASWC recognition was tabled due to concerns regarding the club’s constitutional requirement for membership fees. ASWC also recognized Archery Club and passed a finance request from Challah for Hunger. Finally, the Oversight Committee reported its investigation of junior senator Nilce Alvarez’ senate attendance record.
Archery Club seeks to provide students with the opportunity to try archery in a safe environment. The club plans to use ASWC funding to pay annual fees at the Blue Mountain Archery Range.
The senate also reviewed and passed Challah for Hunger’s request for funding to send two members to an annual Challah for Hunger Summit to solicit input about potential finance changes and network with other chapters.
Because junior senator Nilce Alvarez did not attend three senate meetings, the Oversight Committee was required by the bylaws to investigate. Alvarez explained that she decided to take a leave of absence (for medical reasons) from ASWC because there was not enough time to find a replacement. She hopes to be able to rejoin ASWC soon. The Oversight Committee did not recommend any sanctions for Alvarez.
