The CAB members elected a vice president and allocated money for two campus events at their meeting on Tuesday.
Samantha Evans, treasurer, said the CAB account contains $19, 770. She said clubs need to make sure they have their budget packets. Clubs will be able to sign up Monday at Laure Sinn’s office for budget hearing time slots.
Sinn, CAB adviser, said clubs requesting less than $1,000 will have 10 minute budget hearings and clubs requesting more than $1,000 will have 20 minute hearings.
The Campus Activities Board elected Stephanie Eggleston as the new CAB vice president. Eggleston was elected after the four vice president candidates read their letters of intent. The candidates were Eggleston, Tiffani Roelle, Bryant Pritchett, and Ashley Swanson.
Luke Wright, president, said CAB is sponsoring a career fair that is scheduled for the third week in February. CAB allocated $2,500 for the fair expenses. The fair will include a résumé and cover letter session, presentations on dining etiquette and professional wardrobes, and a career and internship fair with local businesses.
CAB resumed its discussion of the Free Movie Night event, which was tabled during the last CAB meeting. CAB allocated $1,800 for a tentative free movie night in the future. Wright said that Senate is in favor of pre-scheduling the dates for the event.
After discussion, the CAB representatives voted in favor of scheduling free movie nights the third Sunday of every month and free bowling nights every other month. Wright said that money for the events will still be allocated prior to each scheduled event, so CAB will not over-spend its budget. Free bowling will be a late night event, from 9 p.m. to midnight.
Riley Machal, student trustee, distributed a survey to the CAB representatives about the proposed building of a new swimming pool in the NPAC, and other campus renovations. Students’ fees may be increased by $2 per credit hour to pay for the pool, Sinn said, but plans for the pool are still tentative.
Machal said that it is almost time to elect a new student trustee; students interested in the position can contact Machal at the CAB office in the Student Center for application information.
Wright said that the college is having an open house event to recruit prospective freshman on Monday, Feb. 20. Clubs are encouraged to represent their clubs with booths, which will be set up from 8 – 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. – noon. Clubs that are interested in participating should contact Wright by Feb. 10.
Shellie Johns, CAB adviser, said that all campus events, from sporting events to club events, are being posted on a calendar at Laure Sinn’s office in the Student Center. The calendar is a new form of advertising for campus events.
Wright said the Student Center Pit has new management. Paul McGowan is the new manager, and Reba Jackson is the new assistant manager.
Wright reminded representatives that the next CAB meeting is Feb. 7.
