Watch a livestream of the meetings on the usaclive channel on YouTube, which can be accessed with a account.

Special presentations:

  • USAC webmaster Benson Han shared an update on USAC’s new website. He added the website is still in its beta version. USAC Internal Vice President Vivy Li said council members can post their offices’ events on the website’s calendar.
  • Li said her office is working on a project called USAC History. Her office reached out to former council members to create a record that can be passed on from year to year.
