Ms. West reported on the meeting that was held on March 20 at which Mr. 
Curtis Stancil (DAKA manager) attended.  Most significant was that the 
contract meal allowance in the Devils Den now reflects more choices that 
comprise a meal not the previous $2.50 limit.

        MOTION (S. Lamont/T. Kiernan)  That the responsibilities of the 
food ad hoc committee be moved to the domain of the Student Services 

Discussion:  One final motion had the ad hoc committee responsibilities 
moved to the House Committee.  After some discussion, a friendly amendment 
was proposed by Mr. Moylan; this became the motion.  The Board felt that 
these responsibilities should be ongoing and appropriately part of a 
standing committee.

Motion passed (11 approved, 0 against, 0 abstained)     (SUBOG  97-10)

Ms. West opened nominations for the 1997-98 chairmanship.  Nominations will 
be open until the elections at the meeting on May 9.  Ms. Lamont was 
nominated at this time by Ms. Clayton and seconded by Ms. Perlova.  Ms. 
West encouraged the Board to meet and talk with Ms. Lamont and anyone else 
who might run for the chairmanship.

Open Floor:  CSU Day at the Capitol in Hartford was discussed as were plans 
for Spring Week.  Mr. Orloske spoke of the progress of the building 
expansion project.  Architects are to be chosen, shortly; and, design work 
will begin in May.

The SUBOG dinner is Tuesday, May 6, 1997. 

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 7:25 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Robert Schneeweiss
Executive Secretary SUBOG
