Hello, Minna no Anime!

More information about t-shirt orders will come soon! Congrats to Maddy Morford for winning!

Also, officer elections will begin on April 3rd and last until April 17th. As a reminder, only paid members can vote in officer elections, which is strictly enforced. You must get your membership prior to a week before elections, so don’t delay if you are interested. For more information, contact Kaela (the Treasurer).

To prospective officers:

Don't forget to turn in a speech representing yourself directly to Tomas by 7pm on election day, either through a DM or by email (send everything to This will be included in a Google document that will be shared with the club via the Discord server at the time of elections. Some key points you should address are: why you want to run for the officer positions that you have selected, what relevant experience you have, and how active you are in this club. You do not have to cover these topics, but it is strongly recommended, and you may also add other pertinent information. If you feel comfortable doing so, you may include what shows you would nominate for next year's schedule, but try to not make it the point of your campaign. Make sure you respond to Tomas by 7pm on April 3rd, and notify him at any time if there are changes you would like to make. This includes if you would like to change what positions you intend to run for. There are no officer interest forms this year - we will know your interests when you turn in your speech.

Here are some descriptions of the positions so that you know what you’re running/voting for!

- - -

President: The person who makes announcements at meetings, organizes officer meetings, delegates tasks as they arise, fills out paperwork (mostly in Fall Quarter), fills out Eplans (easy). We strongly recommend you have had some club experience before taking this role.

Treasurer: Manages the club funds, Fills out paperwork, manages clubs accounts and liquid assets, takes and records membership dues and info.

Secretary: The Email master, writes the Saturday email (Thursday email writing is rotated), is in charge of recording our members' contact information and wrangling the wild PHP List.

Vice-President: Traditionally in charge of important things the President delegates to them. Functions as a jack of all trades. Obviously be prepared to take over for the President if circumstances require it.

Scribe: A newer position. Serves as the record keeper for the club (like attendance, and sometimes club memes) and manages our wiki, takes notes during officer meetings and serves as an assistant to the Secretary and Webmaster.

Event Coordinator: Entails coordinating between our clubs desires and ASI's requirements. Generally goes to ASI required meetings and assists the Vice President and Treasurer. Also important in organizing Goshi and other outside events.

That's all for now!

Shawn (the Webmaster, for now)

Winter Quarter Movies

Hey, MNA!

As you may have seen in the latest email, the next week of school is week 10, which means that we'll be watching movies instead of our usual shows. If you haven't seen (or even heard of) these films, feel free to ask around or investigate, but make sure to not get spoiled.

On Thursday, March 11th, we will watch A Letter to Momo (2012) (about 2 hours long):

On Saturday, March 13th, we will watch The Dragon Dentist (2017) (about 1 and a half hours long):

See you there!

T-Shirt Contest

Hey, MNA!

Here's something that some of you have probably been waiting for.

It's finally that time again, where we ask YOU to make designs for our club T-Shirt. If you're not already aware, there is a club competition each year where club members submit their own designs. There are a couple of rules in submitting a design, so please read through them carefully:

-You can use 4 of any colors on top of a T-shirt color.
-Don't put copyrighted/licensed characters on it, because that's a no-no.
-It should say "Minna" or "Minna no Anime" on it in Japanese and/or English.
-Maximum dimensions are 12" x 15" and you'll be designing the back of the shirt.
-300 DPI minimum
-Each color should be in a separate layer.
-Don’t include the words “Cal Poly”

There is no limit to how many T-Shirt designs you can submit. The window for submissions will close on March 6th, so make sure you get your submissions in before then. After that, a club vote will be taken to determine the club T-Shirt for the 2020-2021 school year. Please send your submissions to the webmaster on Discord or through email at

Good luck!!
