Meeting Minutes 11/5/16

Posted By Shannon Talley, Sunday, November 13, 2016

The meeting began at 12:15pm

1. The "GroupMe" app was shared as a way for all of CSI to stay informed with chapter events/needs.

2. The welcome reception for Dr. Torres-Rivera was discussed; to be held on 11/9/2016. South University is taking care of the expense of food from Chickfila as well as a cake. A welcome banner and presentation will be provided by CSI students. Chris Powell will be helping us to set up.

3. The Winter Drive was discussed: Due to the number of drives currently being ran, permission to run a campus-wide drive was not granted. We will have a smaller drive through CSI only. We will be putting a donation box in the Counseling lab requesting coats/hats/scarves/toiletries- new and gently used. The following beneficiaries were discussed: The site of one of our internships, such as the Community service board or detention center (care packages to be made with therapeutic messages attached), and a Powhatan organization. It was decided that the detention center will be our recipient pending their approval by December 15th. Any items that they cannot accept due to regulations will be donated to another need-based organization. 

4. Discussed current and future scholarship opportunities within CSI

5. Discussed working with an animal shelter to see if we can help out; maybe we can tie this in to pet therapy/mental health awareness.

6. We discussed the need for keeping our chapter page updated on the CSI website and for involvement.

7. We discussed getting T-shirts made, pending funding. Currently getting quotes from CSI for t-shirts with our chapter name and logo. 

8. We discussed goals for this year: Advocating out in the community and participating in VCA legislative day in January. Students expressed interest in this and we will create an updated plan once the date is formalized. Another goal discussed is creating a mentoring program for new students. Another goal discussed is attending a future seminar as a group or sending a few interested students, pending funding.

9. We discussed hosting a holiday party for CSI involvement

10. We discussed how to keep alumni active in CSI after graduating. 

11. We discussed putting together a "survival kit" for new students.

12. We discussed how we can set up a mentoring program that focuses on practicum/internship as well as post graduation and post licensure.

The meeting commenced at 12:55
