SA Notes

SA plans scaled-back transition dinner
Student Association President Omar Woodard said this year’s May 6 SA transition dinner will involve a Kogan Plaza barbecue, a scaled-back function compared to last year’s dinner that took place at the Georgetown Four Seasons Hotel.
In addition to format changes from last year’s $6,000 closed event, this year’s transition ceremony will be open to all students. Woodard said he does not expect this year’s dinner “to cost more than $2,500.”
“The decision was made between myself and (President-elect) Audai (Shakour) to open the dinner to involve more students,” Woodard said. “We want to give everyone a chance to meet the incoming administration.”
Senator Peter Feldman, who criticized excessive spending by the SA last semester, said he is happy with this year’s transition event.
“Any steps taken to reduce costs and make (the dinner) open to all students are a step in the right direction,” Feldman said.
A dessert reception in the Marvin Center will follow the dinner and will be only open to SA members and media personnel.
