My biggest take away from today is that this year's House Motions justify the governance review process. What I mean by that is that we need to change the way we do business because we're doing the wrong business. It's not necessarily that I disagree with our process. I just think the resource allocation (human capital and financial) could be better allocated. For instance, this year there are a number of bylaw amendments being proposed because "It's a bylaws year." when in fact bylaws can be, albeit more difficulty, heard in any year with the right amount of support and prior warning. That may be a bit jargony but the point is that we're running on tradition over reason. I hope this theme won't persist. Instead.of waiting to see what an appointed group recommends changing, we are debating, at great length, what changes should be made...
In other news though, a good group of New Professionals and current student leaders socialized, mentored, and networked over several tall, tasty pints at Pour House. Wish you all could have been there! More to come tomorrow.
Cheers and Good night,
