    • BEN requests can be submitted at any time
      • Construction will limit some outdoor space availability
      • Races, runs, marches, and walks should all be submitted
      • Weather considerations – August events will be warm; no classes in May or June for outside events (April could be chilly!)
    • Ohio Union reservations are expected to still be made one semester in advance for weekly/reoccurring meetings
      • June 18 is the 1 st day to book reservations for Autumn Semester 2012
    • Classroom scheduling deadlines are still being finalized, but anticipated to be set up similar to the current process
  • Scheduling Tips
    • Longer academic day = less classroom evening availability for meetings
    • Morning and afternoon meetings should be considered
    • More accurate attendance estimates will lead to more room availability (fewer large rooms)
    • Poll your organization as Autumn semester classes are being scheduled to determine if your meeting time might need to change

        • Member selection requirements and removal process
        • Officer titles, duties, selection, and removal process
      • Update dates/quarters, “SOURCE” references, any outdated statements, specific names of individuals, formatting inconsistencies
    • Consider new member recruitment timelines
