III. Approval of the Agenda
       A motion was made to amend the agenda to add a Fee Allocation Board recommendation.
       The agenda was approved as amended.

IV. Approval of the Minutes from June 29, 2010
      A motion was made to amend the minutes to indicate that the resolution affirming the student
      Trustee election results had passed. The rationale was that, while the GPSC Constitution
      requires a majority vote of all voting members present, the Student Trustee Election Laws
      state that only a majority of all those voting is required to ratify the election results. It was
      pointed out that, since no results were received from the commission, there was nothing to
      ratify, thus, the resolution should follow the constitutional requirements. The motion failed
      A motion was made to table the approval of the minutes. The motion failed 11-11-2.
      Approval of the minutes failed 10-11-3.

V. Officer Reports

       B. Vice President for Administrative Affairs: Grant McBride
          As noted at the last meeting, there are some questions concerning the actual amount of
          Activity Fee which we have received. These are continuing to be pursued with Student
          We have secured a spot in the Bowling and Billiards area to advertise GPSC and our
