IMPACT – Currents
Discussion Congratulations to Mario, Farhana, Nicole Gugliotti for getting into the show! Charity created a website to act as a one-stop-shop for information, applications, payment, and archives. Address: www.currents-exhibition.com. Hey, thanks, Charity!


Charity purchased the domain for five years. Since she purchased it with her own money, Charity proposes that HOT Clay buy the domain off of her. Linda proposes checking with UF about using UF domain and server instead of the .com domain, before deciding whether or not to purchase the site from Charity. We decide to table the issue of moving the site to a UF server until the 5 year ownership of the .com runs out.

Motions Person Responsible Second
Motion to purchase the Currents domain from Charity W for $200. Nathan M Adrienne E

NCECA March 25-28, 2015
Discussion If you are going (or seriously considering going) to NCECA please sign the list so that HOT clay has an idea of how much funding is needed. The trip will not be fully funded, keep in mind. Linda proposes looking into raising more money for NCECA via HOT Clay sale raffles. Linda offers a cup for the raffle. Possible partnership with Starbucks. Mario M volunteers to look into it. Others should contact local off-campus coffee shops for possible partnership.
HOT Clay T-Shirt Design Update
Discussion Committee leader Christina C is not present at this meeting, so the issue will be tabled until next time.
Welcome Gift for UF President
Discussion Basket full of clay creations. If you already have things made and want to contribute, write your name on the list. Or sign up to be on the committee in charge of arranging this.
