The tentative date is Sept. 21 at 6:30 pm. Location is TBA. This is an SGA-sponsored event so please be there. You can ask any questions here, and there will be a presentation with resolutions. Remember that any resolution has costs. Raises in price are good. Please explain this to people who complain.
