CAB accepts VP nominations, halves meetings
The members of the Campus Activities Board started their first meeting of the spring semester by choosing nominees for the vice president position and voting to decrease the frequency of their weekly meetings.
Luke Wright, president, opened the floor for vice president nominations because the former vice president, Jamie Keller, resigned last semester due to his graduation. Stephanie Eggleston and Ashley Swanson were nominated. Vice president candidates have to have been on CAB for one semester, and they have to submit a letter of intent to the office of student activities by 5 p.m., Jan. 24.
CAB approved Wright’s proposal that CAB meetings be held every two weeks instead of weekly. The next meeting will be 6 p. m., Jan. 24.
Samantha Evans, treasurer, said that the CAB account contains approximately $20,000. Budget packets have been given to the clubs’ advisers. Packets are due Feb. 21, Evans said.
CAB approved the War Eagles’ request for $230 to make gunpowder for the cannon that they shoot off at CSC football games. Wright said that the War Eagles club had used all its money, which is why the club could request more.
CAB discussed ways to improve the monthly free movie night event, such as planning the dates at the beginning of the semester and alternating between free movie night and free bowling night. Wright said that $1,800 will still be allotted for either event, and any extra money will be returned to the CAB account. Decisions about the event were tabled till next meeting.
CAB members are required to sign up for committees. Not signing up for a committee counts as an absence, Wright said.
Laure Sinn, adviser, said that a walk in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., will be 10 a.m., Monday. Participants will meet at Common Cents and walk to the clock tower on campus.
Adam Neumann, publicity coordinator, said there is a stoplight dance at 9 p.m. tonight in the Student Center Pit.
