Thank you for an excellent Club Day on Friday and an eventful week! We’re excited to hear about the functional day successes and future club activities.
Remember: Club allocations close on Tuesday, 9/25 @4pm.
Late Club Activation Applications
TSG understands that some of you were extremely busy with hectic schedules. So we decided to allow clubs to submit club applications late at a $50 late fee. This fee will be retained and used for co-hosted events between TSG and clubs to benefit those who allocated. We see this as a great opportunity to collaborate with and learn from clubs.
Regional Club Meeting
Host: Nikhil and Govind
At this meeting, TSG discussed regional nights and other activities that regional clubs coordinate. For more info, see: http://bit.ly/SiKLQK and contact Govind Menon (Events Chair).
Date: Thursday, September 27th
We pushed this meeting forward to accommodate some scheduling conflicts last week. Every treasurer from each club must attend this one-time, mandatory meeting. It helps TSG ensure that we have communicated and helps clubs better understand the required practices between club treasurers and TSG. If for some reason you cannot make it, contact Martena directly.
Moodle 2.3 Upgrade Round Table
We had such a successful TLE Focus Group on Wednesday, in which students were involved with Thunderbird’s new site developments, that we’re planning another one soon. Look out for updates! The Academic Technology Services team here at Thunderbird is revamping the Thunderbird Learning Environment (TLE) and My Thunderbird (MTB. TSG will be voicing student concerns at feedback sessions with ATS.
