We have just a few updates this week.
Kevin Chee’s Finance Committee has formed three new sub-committees to work on transparency, funding regulations, and sponsorship, respectively. They also discussed major funding requests for the African Caucus and Women’s Policy Journal and established a new “Quorum Call” funding procedure, for which we have awarded them with a [COMPLETE] rating.
Natalie Fabe’s Professional Development Committee ran a successful Summer Internship Networking Session earlier this month, for which she has earned a [COMPLETE] rating. Unfortunately, she only managed to recruit enough 2nd-year volunteers to fill 39% of the time slots rather than the projected 90%. We won’t disparage her for setting such a high bar for herself, though – hopefully similar events in the future will have higher participation rates!
Finally, a correction to one of the Student Affairs Committee’s goals. While it may have been amusing to imagine how the SAC would have achieved the goal of reducing “HKS’s harmful impact on the government,” the actual goal should have read “reduce HKS’s harmful impact on the environment.” Sorry, Ahmed!
