Vice President's Report

  • Fantastic to hear that the Guild/Tenancy issues have been resolved at this point
  • Given the appeals process...this is the best outcome
  • The next steps otherwise would have been a pain...

  • We have had some issues with this for a while
  • I think that we should see what we can do to amp up engagement
