Group discusses updates

Mary Kate Malone | Tuesday, November 30, 2004

The Council of Represen-tatives discussed business from last week and coordinated various events being planned for the week Monday. At last week’s meeting student body president Adam Istvan presented a resolution to representatives that proposed changes that the Council felt needed to be made to the new constitution. Before members approved the resolution, Student Union Board manager Jimmy Flaherty had expressed concern with one provision that suggested Financial Manage-ment Board meetings take place on an as-necessary basis, and members chose not to remove it. COR discussed the issue further Monday, and representatives agreed the current constitutional requirement for FMB to meet on a bi-weekly basis is necessary and no constitutional changes should be made.Still, hall president’s co-chair Claire Fadel, who attends FMB meetings, said although last week’s meeting was very effective, many in the past have failed to be productive due to poor attendance.”If we are going to meet on a bi-weekly basis, then the representatives here are going to have to push the members of your respective groups to come to our meetings. We cannot vote if we do not have enough members present,” she said.Representatives agreed to do so.In other COR news: u Cavanaugh senator Jordan Bongiovanni asked representatives to sign a card for senior Charlie Ebersol and his family, who were involved in a plane crash over the holiday weekend. “We bought a card to show support for Charlie. Let’s all keep them in our prayers,” she said.
