Council Continues Budget Discussion

At this semester’s fourth Council of Organizations meeting on Monday, March 28, representatives discussed the “Mass Action to Stop the Cuts” event set to take place on Wednesday, March 30 in Albany, N.Y.

Organizers hoped the event would be a final attempt to sway the on-the-fence votes for the budget in favor of the SUNY system. Student Association President Jennifer Sanchez urged students to go out and support it.

It was also announced that Saturday, April 2,  is Accepted Students Day. Clubs will arrive to set up at 9:30 a.m. to table from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Organizations can sign up to table in Student Union (SU) 211.

Club representatives were also notified that organizations can post their upcoming events to the new online calendar on the school’s website. Once submitted, events are sent to Director of Student Activites and Union Services Mike Patterson for approval to be added to the calendar.

Line item beuget requests for clubs are now due on Friday, April 1 by 12 p.m. Established clubs  in need of a line can go to SU 428 to fill out the required forms. Once again, clubs are encouraged to apply for a line for annual programs.

Council chair elections will be held at the next meeting on April 11.
