  2. Typically, the process is that Ms. Mayo emails out the proposal from the cultural group and the subcommittee has one week to review it. A vote is then called as to allocate the group all of the funds, some of the funds, or no funds. If there is a lack of consensus amongst the subcommittee, they shall then bring the proposal back to the CC&E committee as a whole.

  3. The following individuals volunteered to be on the subcommittee: Celia Esposito-Noy, Kathryn Mayo, Kathy McLain, and Bounpheng Bounchaleun.
