the equal opportunity form needs to be turned in:

We also need to make an appointment with a Student Unions and Activities Officer to discuss our constitution and turn in a $25 check.
to make an appointment:

Our groups ID number is 2131.

We don't get the liability insurance and other benefits until we finish all the steps so we should probably get it done sooner rather than later.
