All of them have to have staff advisors and they must be in the meeting and event * For posting flyers and meeting links: please post them conspicuously instead of publicly advertising the information. Send meeting links to emails or social media instead of on a facebook page Club fair Joyce: * Club fair: * Sac wants every club and association to film a short 2-3 min video to be able to advertise each club and association instead of having an in person club fair. * Participation in these videos is optional * Point of videos is to advertise clubs to students, especially grade nines * Question: since its on a google doc, can it be a document/ blurb instead of a video * Ryan: he feels that some clubs should be able to do a poster similar to club fair, also, is it possible to have a document where kids can ask questions about each club to the people who are in the club? Joyce: she thinks it would be a good idea to allow for various formats. Kids will also be able to contact the exec Maya: Can people take pictures of last years posters and add them to the google drive? If a club needs to retrieve a poster from school would they be able to? Dale: Wants to prevent people from travelling across the school but a poster digitally would be fine. Sierra: Likes the idea - to be consistent, the SAC can come up with a few bullet points for what to have in the video like guidelines Joyce: There is one, wants clubs purpose, club meeting locations Bridget: When would the video need to be done by? Joyce: it still needs to be decided depending on club interest, there would be at least two weeks time but currently it still needs to be figured out Sac Store Sam: SAC store is open!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please help get the word out about it and tell your friends and clubs and associations should tell members to follow the SAC insta @sacnss . Store closes next Thursday!! Let her know about any questions! (Insta @sreiken) Spirit Days Nina: Halloween week is being done at school from the 26th to the 30th. The more people that participate, the better.
