    • It was requested that the reps ask their department member for ideas on what GSFF could do as activities during the year.  Is there a desire the part of the GSFF students to do more that just fund conference attendance?  What is the feeling about spending some of the GSFF funds on activities or projects?
    • The next meeting on November 6th will be the meeting where the partial reimbursement request will be processed.  The reps need to gather the request for their departments and bring them to the meeting.
