He and Mr. Schneeweiss outlined the primary activities of the two organizations and how they serve the campus through information sharing among colleges and universities around the world. Board members related some of their experiences in attending both regional and national/international conferences of the two organizations. Ms. Lamont reported that there were regional conferences coming up and, in particular, the ACUI Region 1 Conference from October 17-19 at Colby College in Maine. She asked any member interested in representing the Board at the conference to see her after the meeting. Under new business Mr. Orloske reported that the design phase of the Student Center Addition/Renovation was to begin in October and indicated that the Board would be taking a significant role. How that would occur was not finalized as yet, but he would report back when more details were available. Ms. Lamont then submitted a series of needed changes to the SUBOG Constitution that represented changes in department names and titles that had not been updated over the years as they occurred. Mr. Orloske acknowledged the work of Ms. Zukowski, the Office Manager of SCOES, for taking the initiative this past summer to go through the document and preparing it for Board action. Ms. Lamont indicated that per the Constitution these changes would be voted on at the next meeting and would require the necessary two-thirds majority to pass. The meeting was adjourned at 5:55 p.m. Respectively Submitted, Duane A. Orloske Executive Secretary 1997-1998 /mz
