I. Officer Elections.
We needed to elect a new secretary and treasurer, to replace students
who graduated in December. The current officers for Spring 2003 are as
follows: President - Rebecca Williamson, Vice President - Jenny Ranker,
Treasurer - Dena Davis, and Secretary - Jenny Drake.
II. Service Project.
Last semester LPH members decided to mentor newly declared majors as their
service project For the year. Members who are willing to participate this
semester will answer questions and provide the new majors with any important
information regarding advisors, classes, teachers, and expectations. Wendy
will give an overview of the mentor process at our next meeting. Megan,
Luke, Rebecca, and Pam volunteered to go into the COMM 107 and 108 classes
to announce this mentor opportunity. Ray volunteered to make flyers regarding
when this event
will take place.
We discussed whether we wanted to conduct workshops this semester and,
if so, on what Topics. Decision: There will be a resume writing workshop
later in the semester. Luke is looking into the possibility of inviting
recent-graduate Martha King to facilitate the workshop, since she does
this professionally now.
IV. Special Events
In process is the planning for an Alumni Event to include career-related
guest speakers. All Communication students, faculty, staff, and many alumni
will be invited to attend. This event is to be held at either the Fireside
or Brew Masters on either April 11 or April 18. Jenny Ranker will keep
us informed on the details as they are made.
Please be sure to get your membership dues and gold cord fees to Dena
as soon as possible. Prices: New member $30, Renewal $15/year, Gold cords
for graduating seniors $8 (it is possible to pay for gold cords ahead
It was decided that our fieldtrip this semester will be to Milwaukee.
The tentative plan is to tour Harley-Davidson (possibly speak with someone
from Marketing, Advertising, HR), go out to dinner, and end with a play
at the Rep. Jenny Ranker is getting information together and will keep
us informed on dates, times, and other details. The fieldtrip is tentatively
planned for early April.
VII. LPH Initiation.
Communication majors/students, graduating seniors, and LPH/PAC officers
will be acknowledged at a department sponsored celebration, which will
include the LPH initiation. Conflict certificates, Mediation certificates,
and LPH pins will be handed out at this time. Tickets will need to be
purchased for a minimal cost as there will also be a meal included. Friends
and family are strongly encouraged to attend this event.
The tentative date for this event
is April 13. An invitation and program will need to be created for this
event. Megan volunteered to take on responsibility for the event planning
portion of this ceremony as a one credit internship.
VIII. Next Meeting.
The next LPH meeting will be on Monday, March 3 at Noon in room CA 233.
We will stay with the Monday at noon meeting time since it works best
for most of the students.
Hope to see you all there!
Jennifer Drake, Secretary
