The American River College Club and Events Board passed a bill to provide a $100 grant to a new club and discussed an end of the year celebration at its meeting Tuesday.

The newly established Ethical Hacking Society Club will receive a $100 new club grant towards the organization after a unanimous vote of 9-0.

Only four executive board members were present, but with the resignation of the Director of Activities Kylie Marx, it was enough to fulfill quorum.

Another topic discussed was the idea of an end-of-year celebration for all that the clubs have done over the year.

CAEB President Justin Nicholson said that the celebration was to commemorate the work the clubs have done, and that they will be working with Student Senate.

“This is a tandem event between us and Student Senate so we really want to work together and collaborate, but I want to know what the clubs think since it is just as important to them as it is to us,” Nicholson said.

A date was tentatively scheduled for May 3, but a time has not yet been agreed upon as the event will try to beat the heat by using only artificial shade.

“If we’re going to be outside, I would rather not be out during the hottest part of the day,” Nicholson said.

Vice President Valencia Scott announced that UNITE is hosting a mental health awareness week in May.

“UNITE is hosting a mental health week from May 2 to May 7 and will include self-care spots, information sessions, a veteran speaker and hosting a self-care fair,” Scott said.

Adviser Juan Miguel Blanco thanked everyone in attendance for their compliance with the new check-in system in the Center for Leadership and Development.

“I want to thank everyone for following with our new check-in system at the Center for Leadership and Development,” Blanco said. “I know it was confusing at first because we had a check-in, check-out system, but now we just have a check-in system.”
