SGA holds last meeting; gives $7,000 to CAB

SGA held its last meeting this past Monday in the Odum Library Auditorium, addressing aiding CAB with their spring comedy show, the SGA holiday dinner next Monday, whether or not SGA members should dress up for their meetings, and a senator being elected Parliamentarian.
Tatiana Lee, head of CAB’s Coffeehouse and Comedy committee, came to ask SGA to join with CAB in putting on their spring comedy show.
Lee mentioned that SGA handed out surveys at their cookout this past semester, finding out students would prefer if more well-known entertainers came to VSU.
“[This would be] a very good opportunity to give back students what they want,” said Lee.
After questioning Lee and voting amongst the members, SGA agreed to give CAB $7,000 for the event.
The show will be free, SGA members will have reserved seating, and SGA will be credited for their help.
The show is expected to be held in April in the Student Union’s ballrooms.
New business continued with discussion of SGA’s holiday dinner, open to students next Monday night at 6:30 p.m. in the University Center Magnolia Room.
Voting took place on whether the event should be mandatory for SGA members, and it was decided by 18 votes that the dinner be required.
The event is casual, and the members are encouraged to bring a toy for the Toys for Tots program.
It was then discussed whether dress for SGA meetings and events be casual or formal.
Vice President Chris Nish mentioned that SGA members at other schools dress up for their meetings.
Open discussion occurred, and the final motion was that it will be required to wear the SGA polo or a button-down shirt and nice pants to each meeting.
As far as SGA events are concerned, the Executive Board will instruct members as to what to wear as each event happens.
In addition to addressing reports and concerns from each sub-committee, Senator Brandin Burgess was unanimously elected as Parliamentarian.
The meeting adjourned shortly after 9 p.m.
