T. Kiernan, S. Lamont, S. Minnerly, M. Moylan, D. Orloske, D. Peterson, S. 
Rich, D. Ross, R. Schneeweiss, M. Shedd, S. Vial, D. Wall, C. West (chair)
Guests: Nelson DeFigueiredo, District Manager Daka

Ms. West (chair) called the meeting to order at 6:10 p.m.  Their was no 
report from the House Committee but, in lieu, Mr. Orloske gave the recent 
news on the Student Center expansion project.  He notified the Board that 
an architectural firm had been chosen, and the process of planning is about 
to start.  The Board as well as the departments and organizations housed in 
the Student Center will have the opportunity to meet with the architects.

Mr. Wall, chair of the Budget Committee then gave the committee's report.
        MOTION (D. Wall/M. Moylan) To establish a rollover (reserve) 
        account to subsidize losses on weekend dances sponsored by student 
        organizations with guidelines as provided in SUBOG Motion 96-32.

        Discussion:  it appears that income from the Info Center will not 
        be received until Fall of 1997; therefore, other sources of funding
        this account ought to be examined for Spring 1997.  A request might
        be made of the Program Council Reserve (account #994100) for $200.

Motion passed (11 approved, 0 against, 0 abstained)     (SUBOG 96-35)

Mr. Henderson, chair of the Student Services Committee, then gave his 
report.  He spoke of the Committee's meeting of October 28 and concerns for 
commuter needs.  There are several projects underway including lunch-time 
acoustics, November 11; and a newsletter and distribution of ice scrapers 
in December.  The Committee is interested in investigating services (i.e., 
car inspections, laundry services, baby-sitting) as well as special 
promotions focused on commuters.  The Committee did not bring any business 
to the floor of the meeting.

Ms. Tara Kiernan, president of Program Council, then gave the Program 
Council report.  She highlighted a very busy period.  The Diversity 
Committee granted $500 to the Latin American Student Organization (LASO) 
for the Roy Brown concert as well as grants to the Portuguese and Education 
Clubs. The Recreation Committee presented a billiards demonstration.  Music 
and Talks & Topics Committees have presented an Open Mic Poetry & Music 
Night, and the Music Committee sponsored a Disco Dance.  The Special Events 
Committee, of course, was deeply involved in Homecoming, and Program 
Council's float won third place the Homecoming Parade.

        MOTION (T. Kiernan/M. Shedd)  To ratify the following individuals 
        as Program Council Coordinators for the 1996-97 academic year:

Mr. DeFigueiredo (Regional Manager) and Mr. DeMorro (Devil's Den Manager)

inauguration of President Richard L. Judd.
