Friday Meeting with Cameron

First, I would like to thank everyone for their presence and support on Monday. It was very powerful to have that many people do dedicated to LUCAP and its mission. Thus, I would like to update you on recent developments regarding LUCAP's move.

Yesterday, Jessica Mueller (CLC coordinator), Rick, Danielle, and I had our promised meeting with Chris Cameron. Our goal was to have Chris promise us a space in the Danna Center post-renovation. Unfortunately, this was not accomplished.

However, we did develop a plan in which we have more of a voice in the decision-making process for student organization space. We decided we need a "space allocation committee" in which all student organizations who currently have a space in the Danna Center will have their leaders represent the needs of the organization and have a say in decisions involving the basement. We are supposed meeting before the Christmas break.

I know this is not the answer we hoped for, but this is as much as we could be have promised to us at the time. I have faith that we can make this agreement work in our favor and develop better ties with other organizations while still having our needs met.

We will be moving into the former New Student Orientation office on December 17th. We do not have to physically move our stuff but just pack it up in boxes. Please, do not even worry about any of this until after finals! Use this time to get the stuff you need to done and de-stress (with a spontaneous dance party, perhaps :) ).

Just a reminder that we will be having our end-of-the-semester pary this Monday at 5. We will also be helping Paige make bracelets to sell for her trip to Uganda!

Thank you for all that you do and I can't wait to see y'all Monday!

I hope this "space allocations" group will be run by a non-Chris Cameron person so that things can actually get done.

Perhaps Elliot should be in charge of it? Or Bob Payne? Or Adam Kohler? Or anybody really.

Perhaps it needs to be someone who isn't afraid of saying what needs to be said. Someone who does not mind if Chris Cameron hates them, someone who doesn't mind stepping on some toes now and then. All of that is necessary sometimes and this is definitely the time.

It needs to be someone fresh, who hasn't been here to long and isn't jaded already. Not Bob Payne, he is also graduating this year, and if this drags out into the next academic year it would be nice to have someone who can stick with it for awhile.
