Hello Council,

I am sending out a call for agenda items fairly early, as I want to  
get as much of a head start as possible on its creation.  If you have  
any items you would like included in the agenda, please send it to me  
by email by next Friday, May 30th.  I will (if all goes well) send the  
agenda out next Sunday night, June 1st.

If anybody has an agenda item which they'd like to bring forward, but  
are having trouble with creating properly, send me an email this week  
and I can give you a hand with it.

Please, please, please include in the subject line "Council Agenda  
June" so that I can find them all quickly in my emails next weekend.   
If you don't, you risk me losing it in my mess of an inbox.  This goes  
for all emails, whether it be to request an absence, sending your  
report, or for any agenda items.

As well, remember that if you are unable to attend the meeting, please  
send me an email expressing and explaining your absence.  This may be  
done up to 24 hours before the meeting (unless there is an emergency),  
but I would definitely appreciate if you could let me know as soon as  
possible.  As a reminder, if you currently live more than 100 km away  
from Waterloo, then you are not required to attend the meeting and you  
will have no absence counted against you.  Furthermore, any Councillor  
that is late by 30 minutes to the Council meeting or must leave early  
will also be counted as an unexcused absence unless you notify me  
ahead of time.

Anyways, I hope your summers are going well so far, whether you are in  
Waterloo, on a work term, or enjoying some time off at home.  If you  
are looking to do some light and fun summer reading, then I'd highly  
recommend picking up a copy of Robert's Rules - it is a gripping, 700  
page bundle of fun (the abridged version is also pretty handy)!  You  
could also acquaint yourself with the Bylaws, Policies, and  
Procedures, which are all available on the Feds website, under  
Governance > Important Documents.

That's all I have for now.  I'm looking forward to seeing you all at  
the next meeting, on June 8th at 12:30 pm.

- Doug
