Ms. Calabrese called the
meeting to order at 5:30 p.m. in Henry Barnard 115.
Due to a lack of a 2/3
quorum, the vote on revisions to the Constitution, to update titles, was
postponed until the next meeting.
Ms. Collier reported
that the applications for the student office workstations in Seth North Hall
were completed and would be sent to clubs within the next week.
Concerns were raised about current clubs that had offices but Ms. Collier
assured members all organizations that had space now in the Student Center would
also have space in Seth North Hall.
Ms. Collier also
reported that an outline for policies for bulletin board space and use of
vending tables in Memorial Hall had been submitted by Mr. Orloske and would be
discussed following the committee reports.
Mr. Carte reported that
the committee had discussed ways to promote the SUBOG to students as well as
what policies might need review regarding facility use and budget in the new
building. Mr. Orloske indicated
that the use of space was primarily the responsibility of the House Committee;
but should proposals need funding, they would be involved more.
Ms. Jorge reported that
Mr. Schneeweiss and the SA/LD staff were planning to get house warming gifts for
the tenants of Seth North Hall. Mr.
Schneeweiss indicated that they wanted the gifts to come from the SUBOG, SA/LD
and SCOES together. He indicated
that he had the funding but wanted to enroll their support.
All agreed it would be a good gesture.
Ms. Geraci reported that
the Program Council sent a delegation to the regional NACA conference and
received a great deal of benefit from it. In
addition to the educational sessions, they attended many showcases.
As a result, they committed to booking a mind reader for the spring, at
great savings. They also brought
some new ideas and other acts to follow up on.
She also reported that
the movie “American Pie” drew over
400 students, which generated over $1,100, a record for the last few years.
PC also canceled the Community Adventures program due to lack of ticket
sales. Finally, she reported that Open Mic was a great success and
very well attended.
Ms. Calabrese then went
back to the bulletin board and vending table proposal submitted by SA/LD.
Mr. Orloske explained the situation in Memorial Hall, which is to become
one of the hubs of activity on campus. He
said that a series of bulletin boards would assist in organizing the now chaotic
array of flyers and posters being put on walls, doors and windows.
He said the staff was still refining their plan as to just what would go
on each board proposed. However, he
indicated that due to the lack of space, very little, if any, of the space in
Memorial Hall would be dedicated to individual organizations. Mostly it would be of topical separation like campus
and community events.
recruiting/vending tables he said they were proposing that no commercial vendors
be given indoor space and such vending only be allowed on tables outside during
the spring and fall.
It was asked if the
posters would be policed and require a stamp.
Mr. Orloske said they planned to manage the boards much like they do now
having the Office Manager for the SCOES department check the boards for
inappropriate and outdated materials.
It was suggested that
the two boards at the south entry be included in the plan as well as using the
space under the stairs on the west side of the Library.
Mr. Orloske indicated these were good ideas and added them to his list.
He then asked the Board’s feedback on the overall plan as he felt
though Memorial Hall was not within the Board’s regular sphere their input
would be valuable to the Administration in their review of the proposed
policies. All of the members
indicate that they supported the proposal and hoped it was enacted soon.
Ms. Calabrese indicated
the next meeting would not be until February of 2000.
Meeting was adjourned at
