Sarah took nominations for vice-president. Kelly Harris nominated Kevin Rollinson, which was then seconded. No other nominations for the position were made. Kevin left the room so that discussion and voting could occur. There was no discussion and he was unanimously elected to the office of Vice- President.

Sarah informed the board members that there were now four at-large board seats open if anyone knew of students who might be interested in serving on the board. She then allowed every member a chance to make comments or announcements respective to their organizations.
