**Meeting was called to order at 5:15pm, all board members were present.
*There is some uncertainty as to who our faculty advisor is. Kristina will be asking Doug McDonald if he is willing to assume that responsibility and if he is not we will ask another tenured professor.
*We need to turn in all the paperwork to ASUM to be recognized as a club within the first few weeks of classes, once we have 10-15 members signed up Kristina will turn that in to ASUM.
*Meetings will be held on alternating Wednesdays and Thursdays beginning Wednesday Sept, 3rd at 5:15 in SS252-Unanimous decision.

*The MASA flyers will advertise the club as: an opportunity for internships, a network of alumni, a source of academic funding, an opportunity to gain volunteer hours, a social outlet, to view lecture series, and possibly tutoring.
