Yes, we do have an advisor, but essentially she is just doing that. I was mistaken, though, because every month my darn dedication would fail me, and I would go to the meetings and sit in the back quietly.Through these meetings I realized that I had a lot to say.

In my opinion it was too long and I didn’t want to be there.
You can bring up ideas for meetings, collaborate with other members, help run the meetings every month, and much more.
