Vote on Constitution
-20 to 1 in favour of keeping Male Issues Representative a position open to all.
(Discussed it being reserved for a male and being cut when no males were interested; reserved for a male but woman could be temp when no male volunteer; complete removal of the position; the position being open to all.)
****As a result, we revisited last week’s vote: passing that 2 out of 5 execs must be women. Open another discussion which lead to the possibility of additional exec positions and  changing the group’s name.
-next meeting will be solely to cover this conversation and to finalize and pass the NUWC Constitution****

-Nomination period will start new week.
-If you are interested in nominating someone for a position for next year’s Execs…PLEASE talk to this person first. Ask them if they have a preferred position (Position Description are currently being worked out in the Constitution.) Plus, there is nothing stopping you from nominating yourself

Drum Workshop
- 5 spots left open / NEED to be opened
-          Need money by Feb 12th.

****Please note that Wednesday, February 3rd’s meeting (in Room TBA) will be addressing the NUWC Constitution for the majority of the meeting. There will be a discussion on the NUWC’s name (Both arguments for and against the name will be discussed. An EMPHASIS will be put on be put on problem-solving rather than a name-change). Also, all positions and their descriptions will have to be finalized in order to begin the scheduled Nomination period of Elections.****
