Rebekah Lee, SGA VP: Any questions?

Tiffany Brown, 2010 Senator: Does that mean those boards are ready to go?

Cortney: No, not even close. If you are interested in any position, ask Holly or talk to your
upcoming SGA President, Erin Lavender-Stott.

Lia Kelinsky, SGA Pres motioned to approve in block.
Holly Sigler, 2010 Pres seconded.
Motion passed.

       C1.     Patty O’Toole, Dean of Students

Patty O’Toole, Dean of Students: The Roanoke Times contacted us. They’d like to come to
Mayfest and Cotillion to take pictures. These are closed events so I’m coming to ask if you’d be
ok with that. They’re doing a series on the binge drinking component. They’re looking at events
that do serve alcohol to those over 21 and not to those underage.

Lia Kelinsky, SGA Pres: Recognizing that Senate is the place for the student body to give their
feedback and discuss, I’m not comfortable approving this without the student body’s feedback.

Patty: Time wise… that’s why I came to this body. If you are totally against it, we’ll let them
know. If you are for it, we’ll have a similar conversation to let them know.

Marla Long, SGA Sec Alternate: We have no power to see if this is positive or negative?

Patty: Correct. They’re trying to show both sides. Overall as an institution, I believe we’re very
good at what we’re doing. We’re good at ID’ing. The museum, they are comfortable with this,
because it is there liquor license. The photographer—as it is just a photographer will be with
Human Relations.

Amanda Gaye Smith, SEC Alternate: I understand the premise behind this, but as someone on
HAB, I wouldn’t appreciate having this type of press on the event. The focus isn’t on drinking
and this may but the focus on that. If you want to offer an alternative, maybe they can talk to
HAB members instead.

Kimmie Lockett, AAC: I was just given the option to do a facebook group or something so
people can give their concerns. Considering the binge drinking at Hollins is significantly lower,
I do worry that this may have a negative effect. I’d like to know what President Gray thinks of
this. I wouldn’t want this to be a way to forbid drinking in future.

Patty: I cannot speak for the President, but I believe the focus is on the positive. We signed the
Amnesty Initiative, which, for those of you who do not know, the President signed and it
discusses the idea of the drinking age at 21 and whether age plays a role.
Time called.
Kyra Orr, PPC motioned to extend time for 10 minutes.
Holly Sigler, 2010 Pres motioned to extend time for 3 minutes.
Kimmie Lockett, AAC seconded 3 minutes.
Motion passed.

Ashley Covington, HAB Chair: Is this Mayfest or Cotillion?

Patty: Both.

Ashley: You can give them- I don’t know if I necessarily agree with it, you can give them my
name and email address.

Patty: Thank you. They wanted to talk to someone as well, and you were on my list to ask.

Cameron Niedermayer, Arts Association: Are they still planning to publish this story whether
they get our pictures or not?

Patty: Oh yes.

Cameron: Then I’m not sure our pictures are going to add anything to it.

Patty: I can’t control the pictures, but I believe it’d mostly be the set up.

Jennifer Waterhouse, Horizon: I think that we’re being a little short-sighted here. As an older
student, I’m not sure you all realize how different Hollins is from other institutions. It’s another
way to put our face out there and say we’re different, we’re better.

Tiffany Brown, 2010 Senator: Are they planning on mentioning Hollins regardless?

Patty: I cannot predict what they will write, but President Gray has been interviewed.

WAC: If they do get permission to take pictures, would they have to sign a release form?

Patty: Yes, and anyone can refuse.

Lia: Would it be possible for HAB to submit pictures themselves—are we going to have a
photographer at the event?

Patty: I can suggest that.

Ashley: There will be a photographer when you go in

Kyra Orr, PPC: And yearbook.

Patty: I’m bringing it here to get your thoughts. I’m not invested either way.
Straw poll taken.

Patty: My two other items: One, you’re seeing lots of things about swine flu. President Gray is
doing an update. We’ll continue to update as needed. We’re holding a meeting later this week. I
recommend checking out the CDC website. It’s updated hourly. The state of Virginia is using
the CDC website as well. A couple things: if you get sick, stay home from work and school. If
you have flu symptoms and feel like you need medical attention, call the health center and they
may come to you. Cover your nose and mouth. Wash your hands with soap and water. Avoid
contact with people who are sick. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

Also, for those of you that know Dr. Mesner is retiring. The first candidate fro registrar is
coming this Thursday, April 30th. There is an opportunity for him to have breakfast with some
students from 8:30-9:30 in Moody. Thursday the 7th looks to be the second date; I’ll let you
know next week. If you could come, the registrar is a really important position. It’s about your

Lia: I’d like to know if you’re recommending to the Times “yay” or “nay?”

Patty: I’ll take it to the President.

Lia: But which way was the sway?

Patty: Opposed. It’s ultimately her decision, because it is a Hollins event, but I will let her know
that students are opposed.

Lia: If they are there, will we know ahead of time?

Patty: Yes. I will send plenty of blast emails.

Marla Long, SGA Sec Alternate: Is it going to be behind closed doors? The swine flu thing? Or
can students come?

Patty: We have our normal emergency prep meeting tomorrow. That is just us, but thanks for

        C2.     Erin Lavender-Stott, SGA Treas- Petition

Erin Lavender-Stott: We had one petition from the AAC. She requested $1719. Treasury Board
awarded her $500

Tiffany Brown, 2010 Senator: Am I allowed to ask why you didn’t give her the money?

Erin: A large part of the board’s view was that Treasury Board should not give 150% her original
Lia Kelinsky, SGA Pres: What was her original budget?

Erin: $1200.

Lia: She’s expected to plan 6 events and a banquet on that

Erin: She’s done that for the last two years

Lia: Not the six events. Those are new. Also, did you have quorum for this vote?

Erin: Not technically, because of the AAC—

Rebekah Lee, SGA VP: Point of information: The constitution says that if you don’t have
quorum, the SGA President has a vote

Erin: No, that’s a new thing.

Rebekah: You added that Friday?

Erin: It was added because of this. We had everyone else there

Ashley Covington, HAB Chair: The constitution was changed last year so she has more events.

Erin: There is the option of having Treasury Board go back to look at it.

Holly Sigler, 2010 Pres: What happens if we say no?

Lia: It goes back to the Treasury Board.

Erin: No. There is yes, no, and look at it again. It’s y understanding that “no” is no money is
given at all.

Rebekah: You can call for them to reevaluate.

Tiffany: If we reevaluate, since the funds this is for is Thursday, will it get to them before then?

Erin: No, it has to go back to Senate. Things don’t balance out in the business office until mid-
May, so it balances out.

Lia Kelinsky, SGA Pres motioned to reevaluate.
Jenn Bedsaul, 2011 Senator seconded.

Holly: Wait, if you reevaluate, she won’t get the money.
Erin: We’d reevaluate sometime this week, and bring it back next week. She could get more or it
may not change.

Lauren Shellcross, OutLoud: If she spends more than the $500 and you don’t give her more,
what happens?

Erin: It’ll still come out of the same account. Any group or club that overdraws still comes from
the SGA account

Tiffany: Does she have to pay it back?

Erin: Well, not out of her own money…

Kyra Orr, PPC: If there’s an event where money is overdrawn, would it be taken out of your
budget for next year?

Erin: No. On July 1st, everything is wiped clean. Everything in SGA is wiped clean and any
remaining funds rolls into the Endowment.

Lia: What’s the penalty for overdrawing?

Erin: There isn’t one yet.

Lia: Theoretically, the senior class could throw the most epic senior week for $25000 and there
wouldn’t be any trouble?

Erin: At $25000, at that point, it’s outside SGA funds.

Patty O’Toole, Dean of Students: If you go outside the budget, the university will have to step in
and take over the budget.

Lia motioned to extend time for 1 minute.
Holly seconded.
Motion passed.

Previous motion passed.

       d.      Lauryn Smith, Club Coordinator- Inactive Clubs

Lauryn Smith, Club Coordinator: One of the clubs—for all clubs, on of the responsibilities is for
Budget Hearings. Constitutionally, you’re supposed to be inactive if you miss them. GIA did not
attend Budget Hearings. They also missed more than three senates, so I had to come up here for
either or both.

Rebekah Lee, SGA VP: Are there any motions? Questions? Concerns?
Tiffany Brown, 2010 Senator motioned to make GIA inactive.
Erin Lavender-Stott, SGA Treas seconded.
Motioned passed

       e.      Lauryn Smith, Club Coordinator- Semester Report

Lauryn Smith, Club Coordinator: And my semester report. I attended budget hearings. I sit on
Treasury Board, go to Roundtable and Senate weekly, attend Joint Cabinet monthly. I updated
the club handbook and went to CRC to define the role of the Club Coordinator more clearly. I
also organized the Spring Club Fair.

Samara Simmons, Martial Arts Club: I have a question about inactivity. Does SGA email the
President if the club falls inactive prior to the third absence? Can you do it on the first?

Lauryn: There is a warning after two absences.

Samara: Can you do it after one?

Lauryn: There are more than 40 clubs. I can’t—

Samara: I know, but can you do it for specific clubs that ask to be notified?

Lauryn: It’s too late to change the Constitution again.

Samara: Some clubs have had problems with Senators and other people not doing what they
promise to do. As president, the senator did not go and did not tell us that she wasn’t going. I
wasn’t notified until it was too late.

Lauryn: Sometimes there are irresponsible people in clubs. We can’t punish them. You have to
trust them.

Rebekah Lee, SGA VP: But you also missed budget hearings, so this doesn’t matter.

Jenn Bedsaul, 2011 Senator: The point of this argument is that it’s up to the board of the club to
make sure the people are doing their job or they should follow the impeachment procedures as
deemed by your constitution.

Emily Long, SCC: Is there any way you as President could petition to them?

Rebekah: And if you are concerned with the record, you can come up here any Tuesday and see
it. The club email is notified.

Samara: We’re saying that is too late when you only have one more absence.

Time called.
       f.      Stephanie Pratt, IT Coordinator- CRC Sem. Report & Constitution Changes

Stephanie Pratt, IT Coordinator: Well, the first change is we added a title page. It just started
with a table of contents. It has our emblem. First, we edited the CRC constitution, added my
position—IT Coordinator—to sit on the committee. Bronwyn, our chair, found that my position
was very helpful. We added to the Club Coordinator description that either she or the Senate
Vice-Chair will notify clubs when they have missed two senates because there was some
confusion with that rule. We made changes to elections where the restrictions on elections have
been lessened. We added where if a candidate cannot attend he mandatory Candidate Tea, she
responsible for contacting the SGA Secretary and letting her know. We added the ability of
Horizon Students to vote in general elections and if they are affiliated with a class, class
elections. Requirements for candidacy: we added about the GPA contracts.

Kimmie Lockett, AAC: I have a question about that. When I left the CRC meeting, was that
voted on?

Stephanie: We put that in as a requirement for Roundtable, because it is.

Kimmie: Having been on CRC for a few years, I don’t feel comfortable voting on this
Constitution with that. That’s something that cannot really be put in the constitution, even
though we have to have that. It doesn’t fit in the constitution because, in and of itself, it’s
unconstitutional. It’s contradictory. Either we fix those things or we can’t put those in. That’s
been a struggle for over a year.

Patty O’Toole, Dean of Students: It’s been my understanding that it’s perceived as
unconstitutional because it wasn’t in it.

Kimmie: It breaks confidentiality. The rule as it states is that you have to give yourself in if you
fall under the GPA and that’s where it breaks confidentiality.

Stephanie: This just says it’s a requirement to sign it. It isn’t’ in the exec board section

Kimmie: The part where you have to resign is not there?

Stephanie: That’s not in here

Patty O’Toole: I think it’s if you drop below a 2.0, you stay in the position until the end of the
semester. You don’t have to resign immediately.

Lia Kelinsky, SGA Pres motioned to extend time for 5 minutes
St.Jon Clark, SRLA seconded.
Motion passed.

Lia: You’re about to get to get to it. It should say “discretion,” not “digression” in the candidate
Stephanie: Typo. Sorry about that. We talked about Candidate Conduct. We removed the
restrictions on Myspace and Facebook by saying there is no negative campaigning. Candidates
can have a Facebook group and friends can say who they’re voting for in their status. They just
can’t say “don’t vote for so-and-so.” We added that additional material may be distributed as
long as each is less than 50 cents in value, and they must pre-approved by the SGA Secretary.
Here, we just added the Club Coordinator, so she or the Senate Vice-chair can notify clubs. Here
is treasury board by-laws that if quorum is not reached, the SGA President may fill in as a voting
member. We made a lot of changes to the HAB Constitution. We changed the vice-chair who
shall serve in checks and balances and ensure that HAB is working in constitution manner. PPC
is also responsible as a historian making an annual scrapbook. The Social Events Chair is no
longer responsible for monthly local musician coffeehouses. VPs are now responsible for
monthly local musician coffeehouses. The President of SRLA has been removed from the HAB
constitution. General members also have to plan monthly local musician coffeehouses. Vice-
chair can be appointed now. We removed SRLA here and under funding. We just added to the
IT Coordinator position that she will sit on CRC.

Emily Long, SCC: The part about elections and the 50 cent rule: that’s out of their person
budget? How will that be regulated?

Stephanie: The SGA Secretary must approve the material.

Rebekah Lee, SGA VP: Probably that and a receipt.

Stephanie: We put that value for donations too

Lia: Did you consider putting a cap of how many?

Stephanie: I don’t know if we discussed that.

Kyra Orr, PPC: What happens to all the things that are brought to CRC, but aren’t added this
time? Are they saved somewhere or do they need to be re-brought?

Stephanie: Since it’s the end of the year, I guess it needs to be re-brought.

Rebekah: CRC is supposed to meet both semesters. Are there any questions? Concerns? This
will be on the website for one week and please come next week so we can vote on it.

Lia Kelinsky, SGA Pres: In what case do you not receive materials?
Stephanie: If it’s not emailed to me.

Lia: What do you not receive? Specifically?

voted on them anyway.
