CAB approves constitutional changes

Members of the Campus Activities Board approved changes to their constitution and discussed next year’s Galaxy Series events at their meeting Tuesday.

Members of CAB voted on and approved changes to the CAB constitution that will reduce the number of officers on the executive board and change the nature of the meetings. Luke Wright, president, said the changes will reduce the number of executive officers to four positions: president, vice president of programming, vice president of records and relations, and vice president of finance. The number of officers is being reduced because several of the executive positions are similar, so it makes sense to combine them into one position, Wright said. The changes will also prevent students from serving on the executive boards of CAB and Senate concurrently. Another change is that the regular CAB meetings will still be every other week, but during the off weeks, smaller groups of the club representatives will meet to share information and enact a system of checks and balances, according to Wright.

Samantha Evans, treasurer, said there is $4,098 in the CAB account. Evans said the clubs’ budget hearings were concluded last week. She read the list of clubs and their allocations, some of which were less than clubs had requested, according to Evans. Clubs will receive letters from the Finance Committee outlining the rationale the committee applied to each club. Clubs who wish to appeal their allocations are required to submit an appeals letter by April 1. Appeals will start at 4 p.m., April 5. The money for next year’s homecoming is being kept in the CAB account, so clubs will have to request money for those events when they happen.

Sara Labor, student events coordinator, said the Pit is hosting a 20th Century party at 9 p.m., today. Battle of the Bands, hosted by the Public Relations club, is 6-10 p.m., Friday, in the ballroom. There is a Community Choir Concert 3-5 p.m., Sunday in the Chadron Arts Center at Fourth and King Streets.

The results of the Galaxy Series survey that Shellie Johns, conferencing coordinator, distributed at CAB revealed that club representatives’ first choice of an act is the Tap Dogs, their second choice is Billy Gilman, and their third choice is Keith Anderson. Since the Tap Dogs are from Australia, they fall under the diversity aspect of the Galaxy Series, so Johns may be able to get two of these acts.

 

Riley Machal, student trustee, said that Morgan Nelson was selected as CSC’s new student trustee. Machal said she would introduce her at the next CAB meeting.

There will be a CAB meeting next Tuesday. CAB members will start nominations for next year’s officers at this meeting.
