He shared several of the upcoming projects sponsored by the Center for Excellence. The Center for Excellence in Leadership budget for Goods and Services annually is 100% funded by S&A funds.
S&A GUIDELINES AND PROCEDURES REVIEW: No reviews.
Pep Band: Larry Gookin presented a supplemental budget to provide funds for the Pep Band to perform at the final three games. $1,440 plus $30 for the motor pool-$1,470, or the second proposal added $495 to provide shirts for the band-$1,965.
Conservative Lecture Series –presented a proposed budget for the 2008 Conservative Lecture Series and an outline of the proposed monthly events. The estimate of costs for the series is $18,200; and $5,100 has been raised in donations, and the total request is $12,000. The first event on global warning was well attended. In addition to the planned events, it is the hope to expand the program next year to include panel debates and expand the fund raising effort.
ASCWU BOD Director of Elections: Katie Underwood presented a proposal for supplemental funding for the new ASCWU Director of Elections. In the past the ASCWU elections were handled by the ASCWU Director of Public Relations, but the election process has not received as much attention as the BOD would like. Last year the voter turnout was only 8%. In an effort to increase candidates and voter turnout, the proposed funding request for the new position is $2,818.08 covering February 4 thought May 26, 2008. If this new position increases voter turnout, the position probably will be included in the ASCWU BOD’s biennium funding request.
For the good of the order: Brent Weisel reminded those who have not met with Ed Day to do so before the discussion on base budget funding.
