I. Roll Call
II. Approval of Minutes
III. Approval of Agenda
IV. Guest Speaker
a. Leonard Silence: The state sends an inflation rate that they can apply to all fees, up to that percentage.
V. Action Items
VI. Discussion Items
a. Safety Class Bill: There are several self-defense classes going on in the community. They will not cover the conceal weapon classes. Last year, the pepper spray class was $44, which was a bit; we think if we lower the cost more people will attend.
i. What would you do if you cannot get funds from SGA?
1. We would try to get funds from other places, but if we cannot raise these fees than we will need to keep the cost at the original price.
2. We will have a pool tournament the week before to help raise funds, we currently have less than $1,000. This is more for the students than it is for the club, the classes are for the students.
b. Women’s Ice Hockey Bill: We have been doing what we can to raise funds and coming from last year we had a not as sustainable plan
i. How far in the hole is the hockey team now?
1. I am trying to figure that out now, about $3400, we think. We just got a donation from Gentle Dental. The hardest, most epensive part is having home games, if we have more home games we can generate more revenue.
ii. Do you have dues?
1. $200, and they will be raised.
iii. Will you cut back on the longer distance games?
1. Not possible with the league, the closest team is south Dakota. Some schools are looking to add teams, which may help.
iv. What will you do if you don’t get all funding from SGA?
1. Doners in town, wherever we can find funds. If we cannot pay it all, we will have to divide the funding shortage by 12 people. We will try to exhaust other revenues first.
2. What are dues in other sports?
a. The least for almost all sports, range from $250-350.
b. The city allows WSC ice time for $250/ game. We have to pay for officials and police, because of the history.
c. We charged for the last one at the door, and we will for CU. We want to get students to our game for support.
3. Have all members paid their dues this year?
a. Two have not.
4. It seems like you all are thinking long run, and getting into the NCAA
a. The league we are in is similar to NCAA, but we don’t see that happening, since there are no women hockey teams on this side of Minnesota. Not in the near future.
c. 21+ Bill: Is safe ride going to be there when it’s over?
i. Yes, we are trying to set up the timing.
d. Our event won’t be ending when the demand is high, so hopefully they will be readily available
e. How much for students?
i. Presale for $3 for your first drink and safe ride, and $5, $3 for drinks and $2 for SafeRide at the door
ii. We are thinking small pony kegs of good beer.
iii. The amount of alcohol we buy will be based on presale tickets, to cover our bases. We don’t want an event with more than 50 people
iv. The money that is collected with the sale of alcohol will be returned to SGA.
f. Intramurals Presentation: Why did you use parks and rec. pool than WSC? Cheaper for lifeguards and they had the equipment.
i. I don’t understand work-study.
ii. Certain students qualify for work-study, every dollar a student makes the college contributes 25% of their salary and 75% comes from fed funding. It is incentive to put investment back into the student. Only two employees are not on work-study. When we started to accumulate a reserve fund, Leonard asked us to use all of the funds for the year since students pay that fee money, so it should be spent on them.
iii. Are there areas in your budget that could take cuts?
1. Probably student salaries, since students run out of work-study quickly, and maybe there is a better balance between distributing hours among the semester for these students.
iv. Was this allocation budget for this year?
1. Why would you allocate $0 to the advisor if you chose last year to pay them.
g. Student Affairs Presentation: Does CLUE still exist
i. Yes. They just are not super active on campus.
ii. What does CLUE do? Caring Leaders who understand and educate
iii. Who is your adviser? Shelley has kind of stepped into that role.
VII. Advisor Report
Thank you for letting me (Gary Pierson) be here tonight for Shelley. I do miss this and it’s fun to see how you all function as a group. We have a candidate for the new academic affairs search committee, and looking to partnering with CBMR for their Festevol, with some good bands, and it’s the start for Spring Break and they will sell WSC tickets for $20 for both days.
VIII. Senator Reports
Erika: Trying to do some new events this semester for BSA. A owner of a clothing label and record label wanted rap concert to come and have a music event. Tickets are $12 and we would get a portion of that for a charity. Potentially at the end of March.
Rodney: We have not done anything for the victims of the house fire a couple of years ago. To honor the students involved.
Sarah: a movie at 630 New World by NASC
Walker: Around this time we get a lot of clubs coming in asking for enormous amounts of money,
I was thinking we could have a mandatory amount of dues for each club team. 25% (as an example) of the total budget needed to be collected from club dues.
We could propose a fee change if we need to be allocating more money to the club teams.
IX. Committee Reports
PR committee: We have a new SGA slogan: “$3,000 of your money, have a say in it.”
Academic policies met this week to talk about FYE. How could we get freshman and upperclassmen on campus the day before courses begin? Maybe a big free WP trip.
