Ms. Lamont then indicated to the Board that the copies of the minutes from 
the last meeting were in their packets.  Mr. Orloske reported that the 
minutes were available to members via the SUBOG Web site not only for the 
most current meeting but past meetings as well.

Ms. Lamont then reported that there was one Faculty Seat currently vacant 
as Professor Vial's term had ended.  She indicated that as Professor Vial 
had been so active over the last two years that she planned to ask if she 
wished to continue in the position for another two year term.  She asked 
members to give her recommendations for other faculty who might be good 
representatives should Professor Vial not be available.  In either case, 
she would send her suggestion to President Judd for appointment prior to 
the next meeting.

Ms. Lamont then reported that she would confirm the two representatives 
from the Student Government Association, with the SGA President, prior to 
the next meeting.

Ms. Lamont asked members to fill out a list she passed around and indicate 
which of the three Board Committees they wished to be placed on so that she 
could make assignments.  She also asked any member who wished to chair one 
of the committees to see her after the meeting.

Ms. Shedd then gave the Program Council report for the start of the year.  
She highlighted the First Week programs reporting a mixed bag on attendance 
at the series of events.  The now annual fireworks display, that culminates 
the week, attracted the largest attendance topping 1,000 people.  Upcoming 
events, including the annual visit of hypnotist James Mapes as the opening 
show for the newly renovated Welte Auditorium on September 20 were 
highlighted.

Ms. Kaufman then read a motion into the record recognizing the tenure of 
Ms. Judy Kawamoto, Assistant Director of Student Activities/Leadership 
Development.  Ms. Kawamoto has resigned to take her new position as 
Director of Student Activities at Bryant College in October.

MOTION:  (Kaufman/Walsh) The Student Union Board of Governors recognizes 
the major contributions Judy Kawamoto has made to the Program Council, the 
educating of undergraduates, the training of Graduate Interns and the 
Central Connecticut State University community during her tenure as 
Assistant Director of Student Activities/Leadership Development from 
September 11, 1989. to September 30, 1997.  Her professional efforts have 
made this community a better place to be.

The Student Union Board of Governors sincerely thanks Ms. Kawamoto and 
wishes her much success in her new professional challenges.

Motion Passed (10 For, 0 Against, 0 Abstained)  SUBOG 97-20

Mr. Orloske then took some time to explain to new members the function of 
the Board as an advisory body to the President of the University in making 
the Student Center the best possible Student Union for our campus 
community.  In that context he then introduced the two major organizations 
the Board was a member of; namely, the Association of College Unions 
International (ACUI) and the National Association for Campus Activities.  
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
