CENTRAL CONNECTICUT STATE UNIVERSITY
Student Union Board of Governors
Attendance: S. Lamont, M. Shedd, L. Gargamelli, J. Walsh, D. Orloske, D. Ross, R. Campbell, J. Kaufman, H. Palmer, C. McCabe, D. Sarro. Meeting was called to order by Ms. Lamont at 4:10 p.m. in the Mountain Laurel Room of Memorial Hall. Ms. Lamont then asked for committee reports. House Committee Ms. Gargamelli reported that the Committee received a request from The Central Recorder to swap offices with the currently inactive Dial Yearbook. She indicated that the Committee discussed many issues and finally was recommending approval as The Recorder was the major occupant of the common area and spent more time in this area. The office in question has windows, and it was felt that this would be appropriate. She also indicated that as the other office area was a bit larger, this would open other possibilities for use by other student clubs. MOTION: (Gargamelli /Palmer) To recommend that The Central Recorder be allowed to swap offices with the currently inactive Dial Yearbook MOTION PASSED ( 9-Yes, 0-No, 0-Abstained) SUBOG 97-23 Regarding the remaining office Ms. Gargamelli reported that the Committee was recommending that all student clubs and organizations be given the opportunity to request the space for their use. Ms. Sarro asked if consideration for the compatibility of the organizations with the activities of the Recorder staff would be given in the selection process. She was assured that it would. Mr. Orloske also added that the process would also provide an opportunity to see what the office and support needs were for clubs as it might relate to the Student Center Addition Project. MOTION: (Gargamelli /Shedd) To recommend that the office space vacated by the inactive Dial Yearbook be advertised to all student clubs and organizations for reallocation MOTION PASSED ( 9-Yes, 0-No, 0-Abstained) SUBOG 97-24 Budget Committee Mr. Campbell reported the Committee had been busy and was working with Program Council to develop a standard financial reporting system which the Council would use to prepare monthly financial statements for the Board to review. He said they were enthusiastic and felt it should be in place by the next meeting of the Board. Mr. Campbell reported that the Committee did not meet but was active. They have assisted the Program Council to develop a system of spreadsheets that will enable committees to mange their individual budgets better. They are currently assisting in the development of a spreadsheet to enable Program Council to easily produce a monthly statement of accounts to be presented to the Board. This is to be accomplished by the next meeting of the Board. Student Services Committee Ms. Kaufman reported that the Committee ran two Commuter Coffee programs that were a success. Over 150 copies of the Commuter Newsletter were distributed alone with coffee that was provided by Daka. She also reported that the Devils Den Manager had met with them and is contemplating opening at 8:00 a.m. rather than 7:30 a.m. as the numbers were very low. The possibility of keeping the Grand Central Cafe open late during finals was discussed but no commitments were made. Program Council Ms. Shedd gave a verbal report on activities of the Council over the past month highlighting a successful noon time folk act in Semesters and a disappointing comedy show. She reported that an Open Mic talent program was a greater than expected sign up. Upcoming events included a cosponsored dance with WFCS, a lecture by Kareem Abdul Jubbar, a trip to New York City, and the major concert of the semester featuring Fiona Apple. Over 100 tickets were sold already for the Apple concert which is a good sign the show will sell out. Old Business Mr. Orloske reported that a corrected copy of the minutes from the last meeting was distributed due to a minor error. Also a revised copy of the SUBOG Constitution was distributed, reflecting the changes made at the last meeting. Mr. Orloske also reported that the Addition/Renovation Project of the Student Center had started and currently the program was being refined to meet budget realities. He said after the next meeting this week he would know more and planned to present a more detailed status report at the next meeting. Questions were asked regarding student participation and Mr., Orloske assured members that students from the Board and other groups would be involved in the workshops during the next month or so. The Board as a whole would also be briefed and requested to provide feedback on the plans. Mr. Orloske also briefly described the many other capital building projects in the works on campus. Open Floor Dean Ross invited member to participate in the BOT Student Life Committee visit to campus on December 10 by attending lunch and sharing their views with the committee members. Many accepted the invitation. New Business Ms. Lamont indicated she had forgotten to report that the Graduate Student Organization had appointed Mr. Paul Sutera as their representative to the Board for the year. She requested a motion to ratify the appointment. MOTION: (Palmer/Gargamelli) To ratify the nomination of Paul Sutera as the Graduate Student Representative to the SUBOG. MOTION PASSED ( 8-Yes, 0-No, 0-Abstained) SUBOG 97-25 Meeting adjourned at 4:47 p.m. Respectfully submitted, Duane A. Orloske Executive Secretary '97-'98 Note: This was the last scheduled meeting of the SUBOG for 1997.
