- President Clayton called the meeting into order at 12:31 pm. Those present were as follows: President Katie Clayton, Vice President Shawna Browning, Secretary Eric Jackson, Treasurer Cassie Rea, Student Trustee Courtney Bunting, Nicole York, Salena Russell, John Patton, Mirko Tadinac, Lesa Adams, Evan Bickett, Jonathan Barr, Brittney Potter, and Arial Suits. Those absent were as follows:Brandon Hankins, Keri Chow, Janet Blaze, and Allie Austin (excused).

 

- Dean Flannery then came and spoke to students about the current status of the ATM Project. He stated that our proposal was taken to cabinet, and they decided to include this ATM agreement into our institution’s banking contract with area banks, which changes every five years. The reason being for this is so that our institution does not have two separate banks performing two different services for our college. He also added that the board was excited about the Patio Renovation Project.

 

- James Carlton and Greg McCulloch from the SIC IT Department also spoke with SIC Student Government members about SIC’s current state of wireless internet around campus. McCulloch stated that most of our campus does have wireless coverage; however, we need to work on our outdoor wireless coverage. Carlton explained that one of the main goals is to be able to check in at a single access point at the college, and then move around campus without having to change access points. This should be possible hopefully within the span of a few years. Senator Evan Bickett brought up the point of making Falcon Mail mobile-friendly. McCulloch stated that the college was looking into different e-mail databases for the college to use in the future in place of our current Falcon Mail system. He stated that this new e-mail database could certainly be something which was more mobile-device friendly.

 

- The Editor of the Falcon Flyer, Betsy Dick, then came to speak with students. She stated that the deadline for getting stories in to be published within the next Falcon Flyer edition was quickly approaching, yet she only has articles from Salena Russell, Cassie Rea, and Katie Clayton. Nicole York and Saddie Goodwin had not turned in their stories yet. With a little encouraging from Betsy, those remaining students were then certain of their due dates, and agreed to have their articles in no later than their due date before finals.

 

- The minutes from the last meeting were approved as amended by advisor Matt Lees.
