FISH had a meeting today; here is what we discussed and what’s going on in the group.
-The Secular Student Alliance annual conference is happening this summer! As we’ve mentioned before, we have two FISH members speaking at this year’s conference: Cecil, our president, and Sean, our founder. The conference is in Columbus, OH on July 12-14 (Friday-Sunday). If you will be around this summer and would like to go, let us know. I went to the conference last year and it’s certainly a great time!
-The philosophy debate, lecture series, and discussion series are still in the works. We’re mostly waiting on people to get back to us, so hopefully we’l have some more info on this soon.
-Some members of FISH are involved with Fairness WV. If you are interested in getting involved as well,there is a phone bank from 5:30-8:30 in Ming Hsieh G20 March 7 and a lobby day in Charleston on Tuesday. Let us know if you re interested and w can pass on more inormation.
-The Library Box is still open! Check out our books to find something you’re interested in reading! I’ll be working on getting the group list updated properly soon. If you have a book currently, don’t forget about it!
That’s all for now. Hope to see everyone at the next meeting, next Thursday, March 7, at 6:30 p.m. in the Blackwater Room of the Mountainlair.

Hi all! It was good to see many of you at our last meeting. Here are a few updates, dates, and links.
Cecil and Sean have been invited to speak at the 2013 Secular Student Alliance Conference in Columbus, OH! Hopefully we are able to take a bigger group than last summer. We’ll be building up funds to send several FISH members.
SSDP (Students for a Sensible Drug Policy) had representatives at the meeting to tak about their work on putting a Good Samaritan Policy into place here at WVU.
We have plans to volunteer for Habitat for Humanity mid-October. If you are interested and did not put your name on the sign up sheet at the meeting, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can add you to the list. Cecil or I will send out more info on this as soon as it becomes available to us.
We will have a guest speaker very soon. He has presented for FISH in the past and it will certainly be a very interesting presentation. We encourage everyoe to come! Again, more info on exact time/date as soon as it becomes available.
Anyone notice the preachers outside of the Lair recently? FISH will be prepared with bingo cards next time! With spaces such as “You’re going to hell.” and “Repent”, we encourage tolerance and discourage hate. Anyone who gets a bingo can redeem a piece of candy!
We hope that everyone gets involved! See you at the next meeting!
April Liska, Secretary
