Revisiting motion from last meeting: “Leave it to LitCom to select an editor for now 1. Motion passes with 5 ayes, one nay, one abstention. It was recommended to put this on this month’s agenda for time purposes, as the tradition is to revisit motions immediately when there are any nay votes.

In Feb 2021 when the new website went live, GSC decided to allow new and updated materials on the website. The Literature Committee was tasked with collecting feedback from the fellowship and revising the materials. There are five webpages, one flier, and four pamphlets ready.
