Roll Call Wendi Middleton (Health Education), Ben Wodika proxy for Margaret Sullivan (Health Education), Alicia Wodika (Health Education), David Aubrey (Law), Cole Williams proxy for Jonathan Ingram (Law), Jessica Armijo proxy for Caitlin Knutte (Law), Kevin Morrison (Law), Emily Rollman (Law), Cara Sronce (Law), Pete Stevenson (Law), Jerry Tuffentsamer (Law), Ben Craig (Philosophy), Dennis Lunt (Philosophy), Ed Ford proxy for Alen Avdic (Psychology), Matt Picchietti (Psychology), Alicia Swan (Psychology), Kevin Winstead (Sociology), Jared Bishop (Speech Communication), Jamie Huber (Speech Communication), Clarissa Wiley (Workforce Education), Michelle Dewey (Graduate Council), Nick Hoffman (Graduate Council), Joe Moore (Graduate Council), Grant McBride (Vice President for Administrative Affairs). 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 11-9-4. 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 A. President: Steven Middleton In order to facilitate construction, the planned Student Services building will be on the site of the current parking deck, rather than at the site of the current football stadium. Natasha Aldrich has been named to the Rainbow’s End board of directors. 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 Affairs. We have secured a spot in the Bowling and Billiards area to advertise GPSC and our funded events for the coming year. C. Vice President for Graduate School Affairs: Shauna MacDonald GPSC will have a presence at graduate student orientation and volunteers are welcome. GPSC’s Facebook page is active. VI. New Business A. Fee Allocation Board Recommendations At our last meeting we approved expenditures for a lecture by artist Vitaly Komar including up to $1500 for honorarium and up to $400 for airfare. The Fee Allocation Board is recommending altering this plan to up to $1900 for honorarium and airfare, so as to be able to purchase a more expensive air ticket. The recommendation was approved 24-0-0. VII. Adjournment The meeting was adjourned at 7:46 PM.
