ASI argues protocol, discusses recreation center
October 7, 2008 7:13 PM
The Associated Students, Inc. met yesterday to discuss and vote on a number of issues, including a slogan for the recreation campaign to support the new recreation center and funding for special events. They also discussed the up-and-coming voter rally, which be held on Oct. 22 to encourage registered voters to vote.
A move to approve a slogan for the new recreation center was the first item on the agenda. The recommended slogan, presented by Graham Litchman, Health and Human Services Representative, is “Ready, Set, Rec.”
“It will be the first thing people see,” said Litchman, who briefly explained the design process of the slogan. “There is a lot of backing and reasoning for this slogan.”
Though there was a heated discussion about that lack of participation from the board in the creation of a slogan, the recommended saying was approved.
The following agenda items concerned funding for special events, like next week’s Bike to School Day and up and coming fraternity events.
Some members of the Board complained about not receiving paperwork that explained the events in detail and to where exactly the funding would be going.
Chris Knox, creative arts representative, said that he could not vote yes on any action because of the lack of paperwork.
“Why should I bother showing up to these meetings?” said Knox. “No paperwork, no vote.”
“You should trust your board members that they will explain the necessary information,” said Awad.
Aside from Knox’s and other’s no votes, the majority of the Board voted yes and approved on all of the actions regarding funding for special events, which will support groups like the bicycle advocacy group, the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, the Graduate Students Association, and Alpha Phi Alpha Black.
Members of The Board also discussed adding that the voter rally on Oct. 22 will be a large event that will encourage registered voters to vote and will be a good place to promote and advertise the new recreation center and its new slogan, “Ready, Set, Rec.”
