7:03pm: Reminder about important dates of meetings for the rest of the year
7:05pm: Quick Announcements: Psych Club was proud to announce the new club Historian, Melissa Carstensen. Reminder
about Psych Faire and asked to see if anyone is interesting in helping out with traffic cop. Talked about the Psych Major/
Minor Pub Crawl that is taking place on Saturday, December 4th, starting at 9:30p.m. Join the facebook group online for
more information about t-shirts and those who are attending. It is reminded that this is not a Psi Chi/Psych Club event, but
created by a member. The Psychology Department is happy to announce that they’re very own Dr. McKelley is participating
in ‘Dancing with the La Crosse Stars’ on Saturday, November 27th, from 7:00-9:30pm. Help support Dr. McKelley by voting
for him; $1=1 vote. Dr. McKelley was there himself to promote it and we also watched a practice video of him and his
partner. To see this video and for more information Visit http://www.dancingprofessor.com . Also look at the board outside
of the Psych department office.
7:10pm: Last call for the Psych Club t-shirts. They are $10 each and you can place the money in an envelope with your
name, shirt size, and $ amount on it. Please talk to a member after the meeting if you haven’t ordered your shirt yet and
you are interested.
7:13pm: Officer Reorganization Proposal. Current each club has a separate set of officers, but we do virtually everything
together. Researched clubs at other universities, Proposal would: 1. Increase efficiency and 2. Still preserve enough officers
for people to participate. A chart showed what our current officer organization is, while a second graph showed what the
new organization would look like. This would start next fall. A vote was taken and majority (everyone) voted that the officer
reorganization would take place.
7:20pm: Psi Chi awards for graduates. Discussion about the various awards for Psi Chi members who are eligible and
who are graduating this December. If you’d like to wear chords, medals, etc. for graduation: psichi.org merchandise
graduation. Write up an “order sheet”, attach a check for your total, and enclose in an envelope. Drop off in the Psi Chi
mailbox in GMH 335 on or before December 1st. If you have any questions email: firstname.lastname@example.org
7:24pm: Spring Activities. We try to host a grad. school admissions officer from a nearby university in the spring, last year:
Argosy University in Chicago. If you have a suggestion of a school or an area in Psychology that you’re interested in we
asked that you write those ideas down on a note card. Also, we’re thinking of planning club movie nights this spring with
movies such as Memento, American History X, One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, A Beautiful Mind, Sybil, Eternal Sunshine
of A Spotless Mind, Good Will Hunting, etc. Note cards: suggestions for grad. schools or general areas (i.e. “counseling
psych.”) and movie suggestions.
7:26pm: Relay for life. Update: For those of you who do not know, we generated enough interest and now have two teams
registered for Relay 2011! There are still a few spots available, so if you still want to sign up, you can, but…here’s the catch:
The team roster is being mailed to ACS this week, and if you are not on that roster, you will not get a shirt. However, you
are still encouraged to sign up! Just send an e-mail to email@example.com, and I will let you know how you should
proceed! If you know you cannot participate on the team, but would still like to help us raise money—through fundraisers,
or if you would like to make an individual contribution—please let Ally know! Current members of the Psych Club/Psi Chi
Relay for Life teams, please come see me after the meeting!
7:30pm: Presentation – Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater La Crosse.
