New Business

Two resolutions were passed in the Senate Tuesday night. The first resolution, Senate Resolution 12, included a role change of the chair of the Elections Committee from Student Government President to Student Government Treasurer. Because of personal conflicts of interest, President Miles Middleton is unable to serve as the chair of the Elections Committee for the Spring 2021 election cycle. Treasurer Victoria Parker will take his place as chair of the committee to maintain the integrity of the election process. This change will only be in effect for the 2021 election cycle. The second resolution, Senate Resolution 13, included a co-sponsorship with the Pre-Dental Student Association Dental Drive, which is aimed at collecting dental supplies for the Winston-Salem community and promoting oral health and oral health literacy in the area.
