This past Thursday, the Campus Activities Board (CAB) presented to United Student Government (USG) concerning their desire for departmental status. CAB president Maxson Thomas, FCRH ’19, presented the CAB Departmental Organization Resolution, which outlines information about the organization gaining departmental status.
Vice President of Finance, Kaylee Wong, GSB ’20, explained the different levels of funding to the Senate. The first level is a standard funded club who has to submit a full budget packet and provide an itemized list asking for all funding. Next, there is a block-funded club which must describe generally where their funding will go, but does not have to provide an itemized list.
The next level is permanent allocation, CAB’s current status and the highest level is departmental status. Thomas previously said CAB was a block funded club, but last year they became a permanently allocated club and now they are seeking departmental status.
Thomas said that having the status of permanent allocation has helped them build their relationship with the Office of Student Involvement (OSI) and becoming departmental would solidify that relationship. He explained that they currently work with OSI to organize university-mandated events such as Family Weekend and Spring Weekend. Departmental status would benefit their organization because they would bypass the budget committee and work closely with OSI said Thomas.
He said that as an organization with departmental status, they would present at an Student Life Council (SLC) meeting at the end of the year with each committee’s full spending percentages for the whole year. If approved, CAB will officially be under departmental status in the spring of 2019.
Art History Club
Two representatives from the art history club’s e-board also presented to the Senate. The club’s past events have been sponsored by the art history department, according to the representative. In addition to this, they said the club has already held three meetings where they held e-board elections and talked about the logistics of their club. If they receive funding, they plan to use it for transportation.
Executive President Brian Reardon, FCRH ’18, informed the senate at this meeting that they could not vote for anything because none of the Gabelli School of Business (GSB) senior senators were present. None of the presentations at this meetings were voted on, and instead an email vote was conducted.
