Approval of the minutes from May 19, 2010: Chris Goehner moved to approve the minutes as submitted. Aaron Lee seconded. Motion carried.
Green Dot training: Nikki Newsome reported that 21 people were trained from Central (13 students and 8 faculty/staff) and 13 from outside agencies. Green Dot is a power-based personal violence-active bystander response. It is planned to have two Green Dot training sessions each quarter for students, faculty, and staff. This was an intense experience and was valuable training. Funding will be coming back to S&A because there were several outside agencies that paid for the course.
Corey Sinclair also reported there would be $2,013.15 coming back to S&A because the karate club did not travel to Spain and those funds were not utilized.
Center for Student Empowerment: Mal Stewman is proposing to hire 3 students for the summer. (1) Web/IT $10.00/hr.--$5,200; (2) Student Programmer $12.71/hr.--$4,956.90; (3) Office Assistant $8.75/hr.--$2,843.75 and $390.00 in benefits = $13,391.00. These students will work in the office and complete the "infrastructure" for the web site; work on the planning/set up of "Welcome Carnival" so it is ready for fall; and input data for tracking statistics. Since the State money has disappeared, there were no contingency plans. Next year this should be considered in the base funding.
MOTION: Brad Nelson made a motion to fund $8,035.00 in flex budget funding to provide summer employment for the Center for Student Empowerment. Wendy Williams seconded.
MOTION-Amendment: Chris Goehner made a motion to fund $5,460.00 in flex budget funding for summer student employment for Center for Student Empowerment. Wendy Williams seconded. Motion carried. (3 yes, 2 no, 3 abstentions)
Central Washington University Men’s Rugby Team: The Rugby Team is requesting $35,000.00 for travel next year for 4 trips to California. This is a new Rugby league being formed and CWU was the only team in the Northwest invited to participate. This is a one-time request. The Rugby Team returned about $6,000.00 from a previous S&A request because they did not qualify for the finals. The Rugby Team already has 35 fall freshman interested in playing. The cost to the players is about $960 for their individual sponsorship; and the gear alone costs $12,000 each year. The new league will have 14 teams – 4 home games and 4 away games. Rugby will probably not be picked up by Athletics so it will remain a club.
MOTION: Chris Goehner made a motion to approve $35,000.00 in flex budget funding for the Rugby Club. Brad Nelson seconded. Motion carried.
Discussion: This is a new "premiere" division. This is an awesome opportunity and there will be sponsorship-revenue sharing. "Wildcat pride."
Ed Day wanted to increase the reserve another 20% by $83,000.00. This is done annually to be sure there is enough set aside to comply with University policy.
MOTION: Brad Nelson made a motion to increase the reserve by an additional 20% because of the possibility of a shortfall next year. Chris Goehner seconded. Motion carried.
The meeting adjourned at 6:35 p.m.
