ASUA plans for next concert

Posters took center stage at Wednesday’s ASUA Senate meeting.

Sen. Taylor Bilby’s Tanzbödeli poster funding request, which aimed to advertise donating art to the April 1 culture festival to support breast cancer research, got tabled until next week pending more information.

“”I’m a firm believer that if you are going to throw an event, you need to market and market early,”” Sen. Chad Travis said. He added that without a delineated budget of sponsorships and spending, he was unable to support funding it.

Sen. Dominick San Angelo agreed.

“”A proposed budget of the whole event would be helpful so that we will know how much money we will be allocating to Tanzbödeli as a whole,”” San Angelo said.

Travis’ first senate project, the informational posters to be hung in residence halls, incurred delays due to Residence Life policies.

“”Allowing us to leave the posters up all year was already an exception made to us,”” Travis said, adding the lamination costs of $58.10 would allow for better hanging and less chance of vandalism.

The other concession allows the posters to be updated through the Residential Education office, rather than updated by the ASUA Senate itself.

Virginia Jacobson noted to Travis in an email that the residence halls could not guarantee that the halls would leave them up all year. Also, the memos must be brought to the education office, and, if they cannot be attached, the updates will be left out for residents to access.

Sen. Mary Myles, a part of the Undergraduate Council, whose monthly meetings review curriculum university-wide, noted the approval of the new environmental studies major and aiding Pima Community College transfer students at the last meeting.

The Senate also approved all three appointments to the executive and presidential cabinets.

Carlita Cotton, a psychology undergraduate student, became the final appropriations board director, filling the last of the open spots in the executive vice presidential office. The board now has all seven directors who review and grant requests for club funding.  

The ASUA Supreme Court also gained two new members, Adam Dippel and Emily Ward, two James E. Rogers College of Law students, who now round out the judges on the court, which heads decisions for campus organizations, election disputes and ASUA governmental affairs.
