Emergency Bylaw Change

At the April 8th, 2020 meeting of the council, we debuted a proposed bylaw amendment that would allow the council emergency powers that could potentially be used to:

~Cancel or Postpone GRAS, and retroactively waive all travel funding requirements for GRAS presentations to the beginning of the year.

~Fund incomplete travel requests, especially in the case of students who have cancellations costs associated with a cancelled workshop or conference.

~Double funding appropriation limits for travel impacted by an emergency.

The full text can be found for comment here.
This is intended to assist students who have costs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, but for it to pass, we require a quorum of 17 voting members at our next meeting on April 22nd.
