BRBAA Updates – Spring 2022

The BRBAA Advisory Council held its spring meeting on February 19, 2022.
Minutes from the meeting can be seen here.

Some highlights, takeaways, and dates to note include:

  • There will be a BRBAA General Membership Meeting on Saturday, March 12 at 1:00 PM EST. Action items include confirming Kayla Altland ’10 as our new Communications Chair and ratifying a new Elections Procedures Document.
    • You can read Kayla Altland’s candidate statement here.
    • There are currently four proposed Elections Procedures Documents available for review - versions 2, 3, 4, and 5. If no new document is ratified, we will continue to operate under the provisions of our existing EPD.
    • The only differences between the proposals relate to (1) how voting is conducted (be it exclusively in the form of e-voting – or a hybrid of e-voting and in-person voting), and (2) whether voters will confirm a slate of officers or vote on individual positions.
    • Versions 2 & 3 allow for e-voting only; versions 4 & 5 allow for hybrid e-voting and in-person voting.
    • Versions 3 & 4 ask voters to confirm a slate of officers; versions 2 & 5 ask voters to vote on individual positions.
  • Giving Day is on Wednesday, March 16 and will include a livestreamed concert c/o the undergraduate bandies. (Plans are also in the works for a post-Giving Day Trivia Night. Stay tuned!)
  • Reunion will be held in Ithaca this summer from June 9 – 12. The band alumni reception / luncheon will be held on Saturday the 11th.
  • Homecoming will be in Ithaca on September 24.
  • The 50th Anniversary Sy Katz Parade in New York City will happen immediately after the Columbia game on November 19.
