This past April, Skullumni's Voting Members were asked to affirm or deny several financial decisions made by Skullumni's executive committee. These questions proposed using up to $7,000 of Skullumni's undesignated fund balance, which stood at $10,513.19 as of April 20th, for various purposes. While some votes were very close, all four ballot questions received the 2/3's super majority needed to pass. Below is a listing of the questions, the vote tally, and any recent updates. Thank you to the Voting Members who cast their ballots!
