Variety lunch Profits are $4. But we still have lots of chocolate bars and chips that can be put towards other events. L.Powell
comments that it is often difficult to predict how much to buy in anticipation of sales.

                               Providing Students With Opportunities For Professional Development
                                           UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
                            2146 East Mall Vancouver - British Columbia, V6T 1Z3, Fax (604) 822-3035
B.Xia confides that he cannot find information about the National elections on the website. L.Powell directs B.Xia to
“council” link on the national council’s website. L.Powell also explains that all positions have a one year commitment except
for the IPSF liaison which is 2 year position – during the first year they act as the IPSF Representative and in the second year
they are the Student Exchange Officer. The position of president-elect is 3 years (president-elect, president, past-president).

A.Chernenkoff reminds council to sell all of the bingo cards; to promote the purchase of candy grams. Candy gram sales end
on Tuesday 25 November 2008. A.McLeod suggests that next year we consider selling the candy grams not as a Christmas
promotion but as study-fuel for exams. They could be renamed as “cram-dy grams” and include chocolate covered coffee
beans for late night study sessions.

W.Lau asks if he has approval from council to buy prizes for OTC winners; Natural Health Products for Adeline and any
CPhA book for the 2nd and 3rd place winners. He asks if the awarded gift certificate needs to be from the UBC bookstore.
A.Chernenkoff explains that the gift certificate can be switched to a CPhA book purchase. If a winner does not want a TC
they may choose any CPhA book that is marketed at less than $100. W.Lau agrees to assess the books available for <$100
and email a list of options to the winners for them to choose. If a book is not desired the UBC book store gift certificate will
be reconsidered.

N.Rajan informs the council of the CSHP AGM that is on this weekend at SFU. Pre-registration closed 14th November
however on-site registration is still open. The cost of registration is $30 for Saturday and $20 for Friday. N.Rajan also
reminds council that applications for the Summer Student Internship are due either December 8th.

C.Chan would like to know when candy grams will be made and distributed. A.Chernenkoff declares that it all depends on
when first years will be on campus. PDW delegates are expected to help make and distribute the candy grams. Volunteers are
asked to meet in the PhUS lounge from 11am to 1pm on Wednesday 26 November to begin assembly.
N.Liu will be selling the Little Travelers next week on Monday 24 November, Tuesday 25 November, and Wednesday 26
