Hunter Petrus, Student Government Association president, presented a proclamation thanking the Executive Council at the bi-weekly meeting Tuesday.
The executive resolution is to recognize the administrators and Chancellor’s Executive Council for their hard work, dedication and passion for making ASU a better place for students, according to the resolution.
“Everything we have done in resolution-form and in committee-form, everything this year has been presented or relayed to them to all of the (Executive Council),” Petrus said. “All of them have touched a resolution in some way.”
According to the resolution, the Executive Council is made up of the chancellor, provost, chief of staff, vice chancellor of student affairs, vice chancellor of finance and administration, vice chancellor of university advancement and the athletic director.
“They really have helped us, giving us feedback, so this is our thank you to them and we are going to recognize them,” Petrus said.
The resolution will be voted on at the next SGA meeting.
Austin Copenhaver, vice president, reminded the senate of the upcoming SGA elections.
“Elections are March 12-13,” Copenhaver said. “Just a reminder to be aware that there is no campaigning anywhere in the Student Union or Library or 100 feet of either of those.”
Copenhaver also mentioned that there are no polling sites allowed and if anyone sees this activity to report to him.
“Just be aware,” Copenhaver said.
Martha Spack, adviser, reminded the senate of the upcoming Rugby Day and the game that will take place at 1 p.m. on Saturday.
“SGA is co-sponsoring Rugby Day on Saturday,” Spack said. “I believe the games are about 90 minutes long and they’ll be giving away free T-shirts. There will be some food out there, so make sure to attend.”
Petrus also brought up the Sun Belt Conference that will take place this weekend in Hot Springs.
“It is the very last one to be in (Arkansas),” Petrus said. “If you’re not busy make sure to go to that because from here on out it’ll be in New Orleans. While that may be more fun and rambunctious, it’s not going to be easily accessible for everyone.”
The next SGA meeting will be held March 26 at 5:30 p.m. on the eighth floor of the Library.
