SGA Wrap Up: February 28, 2017

Next was major event requests. H.U.E.L.L.A.S and Armenian Club were welcomed back after having their request for a trip to L.A. tabled until today’s meeting.

Their request of $8,726.12 was not approved last Tuesday because of conflicts with their cost per student and transportation once in California.

The two clubs also noted that they planned to stay in an Airbnb for the community aspect, however the SGA felt more comfortable with them staying in a Best Western.

Two motions were made, one to approve and one to deny funding. Another motion to vote by a show of hands was approved. Because the vote to deny funding was the most disruptive, the SGA voted on that motion first.

Next for requests were Emmanuel College’s Habitat for Humanity and Swim Club. The first group up was Habitat for Humanity.

The request was approved in full.
