From March 13th to 15th, we held our annual KAAMP Revealing week!! This is when all the new eager new adings were able to come to the table to pick up their clues and gifts ^-^ Each day there was a task for the adings to do such as spelling their names with their butts or screaming “I LOVE MY KUYATE!!!”. Some adings received many yummy foods, DIY gifts, new clothing/shoes, and even Disneyland tickets?!?! Crazy!!
Then came the big day. The day where everything changes… KAAMP REVEALING!!! Adings met up at SU Patio where they are handed an emoji print out and they are supposed to figure out which Fam they are from. If they received the same emoji, that meant that they were in the same Fam! While all of that fun was happening at the SU Patio, Kuyates were nervously waiting for their new adings over on Tower Lawn with their posters and balloons. And then came the big moment.. Adings finally met the person who has been showering them with love for the past week!! Love and happiness all around ^-^
And to KAAMP Core, a big big thank you for everything you guys did this year. Thank you for all your hard work and all the sacrfies you made to make this program amazing. LOVE YOU GUYS <3
On March 20/21st, we held our Election Info Nights, and this is for anyone who is interested in being a future leader for Akbayan. It was as casual event for gen members to learn more about each position and what is required in order to run for cabinet. It also gave a chance for anyone to ask any questions that they have about running for cabinet as well.
If you were not able to attend the Info Nights, an important piece of information to know is that a new amendment has been put in place and it affects the upcoming elections! The new amendment states that Nominees must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 and a 2.0 GPA in the current semester of elections. They must also be a matriculated student and have good academic standing in San Jose State University. Upon declaring and before elections nominees must provide proof. Nominees who fail to provide proof before debates will result in a disqualification from elections. Proof must be given to the non-voting parties, President and Advisor of Akbayan.
For any questions, comments or concerns feel free to contact 2016-2017 President Gerard S. Manay through email at firstname.lastname@example.org
