New Business:


Upcoming Conferences: The Inclusion Conference S.H.I.N.E 2018 is coming up on April 14 and the Provincial Conference Rise Up 2018 is being held on May 17-20 and cabinet members are to promote for both conferences and to fill out their registration forms, with S.H.I.N.E being a priority as it is being held sooner.


International Baccalaureate Students: As the final IB French exam is being held on the second day of Provincial Conference, IB students wanting to attend conference will not be able to attend the first day and a half of conference. Regardless, they will not be able to get a reduced fee and it would be difficult for any IB student to be a skill builder at conference. It may be possible for IB students to write their exams at Dr. JH Gillis High School in Antigonish, as it has the IB program there, though it would be very difficult to organize, and many students may prefer to study and write at their own schools and come late.


Fundraising: Hannah H attempted to get in contact with a Sobeys in regards to bagging groceries and will continue to do so. If that does not work out, a No Frills or Superstore may be contacted.


Inclusion Conference: As Inclusion Conference is heavily associated with Best Buddies, it is an option for buddies to write each other’s names on the registration form for S.H.I.N.E and be paired up for the day-long conference. If a delegate or a delegate assistant does not do so, they will be paired up randomly as it has been done in previous years.


Cheque Requisites: Those who need cheque requisites will receive them as soon as possible. Cody attended the Provincial Cabinet meeting that was held today where the cheques should have been written out.


Prep Rally: The Prep Rally is still planning on being held around May 1 – 3, from 7:00pm – 9:00pm at Citadel. More planning will be done at the next meeting.


Motion to Adjourn: Celia motioned to adjourn the meeting at 19:28 and Ciara seconded said motion. Motion passed, meeting adjourned.


Date of Next Meeting: The next meeting will be held either the 18 or 25 of March. Cabinet members will be updated as to which date the meeting will be held.
