55-08: An Act to Allocate Funding in the Amount of $1,795 to DSA to Attend NACA


Please provide the committe with a Summary and Purpose of this trip (min. 3 sentances) * The Department of Student Activities would like funds in order to attend the NACA (National Association for Campus Activities) National Convention early next semester (2016).

The annual conference provides various universities from all different regions access to education allowing students to become better campus programmers. In addition, this conference has showcases which both provide students with access to block booking, thus saving money, and event ideas.

Please explain how the students, campus, and/or the Missouri Students Association will be positively impacted by the information shared on this excursion if funded (min. 3 sentances): * DSA directly impacts the campus climate as well as the student body with the events that we put on. Though some may ignite controversy, DSA brings programs of all points of view and opinion to campus, we try to provide eye-opening, entertaining, and most importantly educational events at all costs. NACA helps us to provide these events by giving us face-to-face contact with agents, directors, and speakers. We get way more for the money we spend when we work within our network that gets stronger every year at the conference.
