Suggested changes to our procedures would need to be in the form of a proposal, comments or concerns about any other issue should be forwarded to the eboard or an appropriate staff member. The AB meeting serves as a place for you to voice your concerns on how to improve the experience of everyone involved in the circuit. In an effort to continue to foster growth within the circuit, we need feedback on how to make this great circuit even better for directors, show sponsors, spectators, and most importantly the students involved.
Opinions of our membership are heard in the form of proposals submitted via email BEFORE the Circuit meeting.
