SUSU H&S meeting

  • We apparently need to go, but have not been threatened with DISAFFILIATION.
  • Murray needs to go, as he's secretary, or Tyler as he's president
  • Murray will figure out when he's free and go


  • For SUSU to change the 25 members limit would be easier as it's a bylaw compared to if it were a rule
  • But they don't apparently destroy societies when they drop below 25, otherwise most socs would be gone, so we're totally fine.
