I was very impressed to see how thorough the committee looked at everything. It is clear that the Legislative Council makes a conscientious effort to examine all angles of the proposals that they look at before taking action. Not only does the committee have to look at the impact of their decisions, there are also a number of other issues that are examined and considered. Some considered are the legal ramifications and others being the opinions of other cabinets and committees.
I was invited to dinner by a few of the committee members. We went to Naked Chopstix, a sushi restaurant in the Broadripple neighborhood near downtown Indianapolis. The food was delicious and the company was even more enjoyable. It was nice to be able to put the agendas aside for awhile and just get to know some of the members of the Legislative Council on a more personal level.
Serving on the Legislative Council is such an amazing opportunity that comes with the position of Vice Chair. However, I give the entire credit to the National SAAC and all student-athletes across the country who have worked tirelessly to garner appropriate feedback relative to the proposals and issues that we looked at. Your work helped to make my role in serving SAAC much easier and gives me the confidence to attend these meetings with a wide perspective of the student-athlete voice. For that, I sincerely thank you!
