      space, not everyone can go to formal.  So....

            - Please explain your decision.
         - Last week’s question:
         - How should service be put up on the website, by week or by
            - Tons of responses - its going to be week by week because of

      - Constitution: Scholarship Account Article XX, Section 6
         - Scholarship account intention:
            - Active members who cannot pay for dues//use for nationals,
            other interchapter relations trips//service trips
               - “The Ohio University controlled scholarship account (7584)
               belonging to the Delta Gamma chapter of Alpha Phi Omega
shall be used to
               financially assist activated members attending
fraternity endorsed service
               trips and/or fraternity conferences at the sectional,
regional, and national
               levels; as well as, those activated members who have
demonstrated financial
               difficulty in paying their dues. The Delta Gamma
chapter shall assist
               service and conference trips by matching the amount
fund-raised in
               proportion to the costs of the trips and the balance of
the account by the
               attending activated members for the purpose of the approved trip.

   - Activated members wishing to receive financial assistance in paying
               their dues must demonstrate financial difficulty by
contacting the ombudsmen
               and completing the approved application.  Upon
completion, the activated
               member's case will remain confidential as the ombudsmen
bring it to the
               executive board.  Assistance will be granted with a
majority vote of the
               executive board.  Once granted, the activated member(s)
being assisted
               accept that their non-mandatory chapter expenses (i.e.,
T-shirts, priced
               events) will be monitored to ensure proper use of the
scholarship account.”
                       The account will be maintained by directing $5
from every members'
               (actives and pledges) dues to the fund.
               - Furthermore, the money added onto dues when paid late will
               contribute to the maintenance of the account.”

   - And voting on....
               - Article XXII/Section 11
               - No member may receive more than 4 service hours throughout
               a quarter in the form of donations for a service
