Jia explained that we can can get Congress hoodies for $20.00 each that we would pay individually, it would not come out of the Congress budget. We need to decide on the position of the Congress logo and any other details we want to add.
VII. New Business
A. COAC Update presented by David Cao
The COAC meeting took place at Vanier and their discussion was based primarily on internal affairs. Social media advertising was one of their biggest topics and David explained that we should try and add more photos of the Congress team on the website to promote the club more. He also mentioned creating an Instagram page to advertise different events going on in the school through social media outlets other than Facebook. Another idea was a volunteer pool, where we interview different people and form a group of about 70 students who we will ask to help out at different events where we need volunteers which will become a lot easier if we have a group already in place. An inter-collegiate party was widely agreed upon at the meeting as well and David was advised by Ramiz to make sure that it does not coincide with the Marianopolis End of Year Party. Intercollegiate games were also discussed and they would be made up of large events with different sports games that everyone can participate in, such as dodgeball, ultimate frisbee and they hope to set a tradition for cegeps for years.
B. Registrat Entrepris presented by Ramiz A. Razzak
We are all officially administrators, Registrar was sent out and accepted.
C. Name Tags presented by Trudy Ste-Croix

1 vote for paper name tags
9 votes for metal name tags
1 vote for button name tags

D. Badges presented by Yiwen Chen
