Staff Meeting Notes: May 2015

Welcome to the last meeting of the 2014-15 academic year!
Always bittersweet as we say goodbye to staff members who are moving on.  Hope we can acknowledge that today and make this a fun meeting.

Lots to cover including elections, pledge drive, and staff recognition followed by ice cream!
Apologies from Ben M for missing his first election in 16 years.
Personnel (Ben):
Service Hours: the deadline is looming, get them done! Remember that board hours are 4-6PM on weekdays, so that’s the best time to come in.
Pledge Drive (Laura):
-This is an especially important pledge drive because we’re raising money to get much-needed upgrades to our studio equipment: new sound boards, better equipment to host live in-studio performances (more mics, a roundtable, etc.)
-Finally starting to build momentum: Over $5K in but still $14,790 left to go.
-surely more pledges will come in the mail over the weekend.
-Last pledge drive, only 1/3 of our staff participated. We can do so much better!
-Consider how much of a role WESU has played in your life. If we get so much out of being part of the station, the best thing we can do is raise money to make it an even better place.
One easy way to participate: BUY A SHIRT!  Staff special of $15! Available here today.  
-60 second pitches from each candidate who submitted a letter of intent on time.
-candidates who are running for contested positions can take up to 3 questions from staff members.
Staff recognition:
-Outgoing board
-Graduating seniors
-Service hour accomplishments
Thanks for an incredible year! Celebrate outside with us – ice cream on the house courtesy of Paul the Ice Cream Man.
