Welcoming Chair: Finalized plans for an opening activity to go with fuzzies, and the majority of the fuzzies have been made. They’re still looking for donations.

Old Business:

The cabinet discussed the businesses that have been contacted regarding donations, and discussed how the money received will be used. All are reminded to continue collecting donations for the upcoming conference. There are some donations for the delegate bags

Possibilities for a motivational speaker were discussed, and different people will be contacted regarding prices.

With the presentations in schools, goals were set for the number of delegates at SHIMMER from different schools and areas. The cabinet is striving for high numbers!

New Business:

Shirts for the junior conference were discussed. As there is not room in the budget to account for shirts, the cabinet discussed the possibility of making shirts optional and having the delegates order and pay for one separately if they would like one. The cabinet decided to make contact to see about prices regarding ordering shirts, and will vote on the decision once the number of delegates is confirmed.  

Kelsey Robson moved to adjourn the meeting. Brennan Marks seconded.
