The SGA plans to institute a policy that limits the number of excused absences a member of SGA may have. They plan to allot 3 excused absences for any reason to each member. This number would likely be in addition to the maximum number of unexcused absences given.
HELP Meeting Changed
HELP meetings will now be held after the general SGA meeting on Tuesday. This change is planned because each club is asked to report weekly at the general meeting, and the Vice President feels that this time change will increase attendance and be more convenient for those who come to HELP. HELP meetings are held to help and support club presidents in their goals.
Meeting Time Changed
SGA will now convene at 12:10 p.m. instead of noon. This change will allow senators to make it to the meetings on time from classes that end at 11:55 a.m. All who attend meetings should make note of this change.
New PR Chairs
The PR committee announced new leadership at Thursday’s meeting. Their new chairs are Mary Connors and Christian Tabron. Both chairs reported that their committee is quite active, as they are responsible for the publicity for SGA and all of the ventures under its’ purview.
Senators are reminded that they are welcome to attend more than one CCSG even though the new legislation requires that they attend only one session. There are three CCSG sessions left in the term: Jan 25-26, Mar. 15-16, and Apr. 12-13. These weekends are extremely vital to the progress of SGA, and all senators are invited to attend.
2013 Hazleton THON Dancers Announced
THON has announced this year’s dancers from Hazleton. THON members selected were: Leeann Marie Tufaro, Michael Bailey, Megan McGee and Gabiela Herrera. While the selection process was difficult, the preparation for THON is not for the faint of heart. Dancers are asked to follow a sound diet and get plenty of rest and exercise in anticipation of their hours of dancing at THON in February.
Committee Members Needed
Megan McGee, President, has asked students who are interested in filling several openings on committees in the faculty senate to contact her for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org. Student representation on these committees is very important for meaningful collaboration between faculty and students and also for meaningful change to take place on campus.
SFF Committee Members Appointed
The Student Facility Fee is dedicated to enhancing recreational areas on campus. Past efforts have included the hydration station in the gym. New members have been appointed to uphold this mission. They are: Casey Petty, Vice President, Richelle Reeder, and Neil Grecca.
