SSA Meeting - Minutes from 4.28.09

Greetings Sustainable Aggies!

Students for Sustainable Agriculture met last night to recap on several activities that have happened in the past couple of weeks and also to talk about upcoming events. Thank you to Katie for taking notes.

We also got a new couch for the office - thank you Ryan!

Maggie introduced the group to a new form of consensus decision making that she learned about while at the Food and Society Conference last week - it is called Fist to Five. SSA will be adopting this consensus voting procedure for meetings.
