The UNF Table Tennis Club plans on placing a new table in the UNF Student Wellness Complex. It originally requested $616.99 for a new table and table tennis balls.

The invitational is a competition in which students can participate in realistic mock trials. The funding passed with 13 approvals.

Changes to special request procedure
Changes were made to the procedure for requesting funding from the Budget and Allocations Committee. These changes will allow requests to be submitted to the B&A chair only four days before the next budgetary meeting, rather than the previous 10 days. These changes also amend the minimum amount of days before a budgetary meeting that a travel request must be time-stamped from three to two.
