In the second meeting, the 112th SGA senate discussed attendance expectations for meetings, the renovation of MSE and a draft of new guidelines on club funding.

The 112th Student Government Association (SGA) met for its first meeting on April 23. 

Executive President Stone Meng and President of the Senate Nasreen Naqvi discussed the general body meeting structure and potential modifications within the Senate. The presentation for members focused on expectations regarding attendance and general expectations on etiquette. Concerns over the new attendance policies were extensively discussed. Naqvi said that the amendment will be a work in progress over the summer.

Vice President Amy Li presented the details of her meeting with Sheridan Dean of University Libraries Elisabeth Long about the opening of new study spaces at the Johns Hopkins Club in light of the upcoming renovation of the Milton S. Eisenhower Library (MSE). Discussion points brought up by the Senate included the renaming of the MSE, sectioned rooms to better fit its purpose as a library and a way to honor affiliates. Li showed pictures of the Johns Hopkins Club and layouts in her presentation.

The Senate then voted on potential names for the Johns Hopkins Club and discussed the appropriateness of the names proposed.

On the topic of club funding distribution for the new year, Treasurer Brandon Benjamin presented a draft of new guidelines. One of SGA’s major goals is to encourage clubs to increase individual fundraising efforts.
