New Business:


Cabinet Bonding: On December 17, 2017, cabinet members will be having a movie night at Hannah H’s house at 6:00pm. There will also be a dessert potluck, with all cabinet members bringing desserts of their choice, as well as the recipe for their dessert. There will be a Secret Santa between cabinet, except the gifts being wholesome letters between members. Another suggestion for a cabinet outing was a skate at the Oval.


Prep Rally: It was decided that there will be a Prep Rally before Provincial Conference in order to practice the Metro Region dance performed at the talent show and to prep for Provincial Conference.


Day Long Conference: A suggestion put forward was to host a day-long conference in the Spring; potentially from 9:00am – 9:00pm or 12:00pm – 5:00pm or 9:00pm. An idea was to have each skill building group be competing against each other through different challenges relating to the sessions throughout the day and have a formal dinner at the end of the conference day to recognize the winning team (in a similar fashion as Gala at the end of the year). If there were to be a formal dinner at the end, there would likely be limited spots available (around 100 open spots). Claire put forward the idea that members of the winning team could receive a discount on one NSSSA spirit wear item at Provincial Conference. Registration could potentially be online. Hannah H and Cody will speak to the Trio about these ideas.


Miscellaneous: Everyone did the Inclusion Education Survey online.


Motion to Adjourn: Claire motioned to adjourn the meeting at 19:52 and Alex seconded said motion. Motion passed, meeting adjourned.


Next Meeting: The next meeting date and time is to be determined.
