CCSC Has A Thrilling Debate Over… Co-Sponsorship Bylaws

Something’s crooked in the Lerner Satow room…

Overheard on last night’s CCSC livestream: “So why didn’t Bwog decide to show up today?” Because of the magic of technology! Nadra is out this week, so Social Media Editor Zack Abrams brings you this CCSC update from his bed.

Last night’s CCSC meeting began with the usual updates, quickly led into a discussion over co-sponsorship bylaws, and ended with a few updates on upcoming events and partnerships.

The Co-Sponsorship Debate

Ramsay Eyre, Class of 2021 Representative, introduced an amendment that would have discussions of non-monetary co-sponsorships of events (basically CCSC just giving an event a Facebook post shout-out instead of money or help in organizing the event) happen at comms meetings in order to increase the efficiency of CCSC meetings.

To read the full minutes of the debate, check out the master minutes document from CCSC, but in summary: some members were concerned that the entire CCSC body should have knowledge of all events, while Ramsay and his supporters were concerned that it would take too much time out of meetings for something that didn’t amount to much CCSC support. In the end, the amendment was introduced but not seconded, so futher discussion of the amendment was tabled for a later date.

FLIP Says Hello

Miguel Yepes, a member of the First-generation Low-Income Partnership (FLIP) executive board’s Food Insecurity committee, dropped by CCSC to discuss future plans for Campus Hunger Awareness week, an event put on by FLIP and the Food Pantry that will take place from February 4th to the 8th. Miguel hopes to have speaker panels, film screenings, a keynote speech, and a food packing event, all to bring light to the issue of food insecurity on campus.

Yepes hoped to bring this event to the attention of CCSC but didn’t know whether or not he would seek CCSC’s co-sponsorship of the event, monetary or otherwise, but plans to discuss that with CCSC as the event approaches. Yepes also requested that CCSC raise awareness of the Food Pantry’s current resources to alleviate food insecurity, including the CU Meal Share app and Facebook group.

Selected Updates

  • A motion for CCSC to co-sponsor a Low Lounge study break with the Office of University Life on December 11th passed easily, so look out for more info in the CCSC Facebook page later this week.
  • CCSC focused on promoting the Student Needs and Priorities Survey, changing everyone’s Facebook cover photos to raise awareness. Cute! If you submit the survey and show CCSC at the Lerner Ramps this Tuesday and Wednesday, they’ll give you a baked good. More info at the Facebook event.
  • The Class of 2020 is planning a movie night in Lerner, so stay tuned for more information on that.
  • The Class of 2021 is planning a holiday-themed study break this Tuesday
  • CCSC’s Winter Festival will be this Wednesday in Low Library
