Last Board meeting of Summer 2010

• Alteration of Conduct Committee Screening Committee

May 6, 2010

• Student Executive Compensation Change
o President gets 100% stipend, expected hours are 18-22
o VPs get 75% stipend, expected hours are 15-18
• Creation of the Conduct Committee
o ConCom is like AdCom, but for conduct cases.
o ConCom is empowered to interpret and apply PD §VII, and §20 of Member Contract.
o Note: We created a conduct committee, largely to get Cabinet out of the business of adjudicating conduct cases and back into the business of leading and managing the work of the Board, etc. See notes on the OpCom and GovCom google sites.
• Alteration of the bylaws to empower the Conduct Committee to terminate membership
o Creation of Conduct Committee Chairperson position
• Alteration of the Administrative Committee
o Members now serve 1-year terms
o AdCom now explicitly handles only the AdCode and Member Contract (except §20, which is handled by ConCom)
• Alteration of AdCom Chair from 5 hours per week to 3.5 hours per week
• Creation of Advisory Committee
• Capital Affairs Committee changed to full standing committee
• Governance committee made permanent, activated to address specified issues on a semester basis
• Committee composition as follows: FiCom is 5, OpCom is 5, all others are 3-5.
o Each committee may have as one non-voting member a member of the Alumni Board
o No Board rep on MaintCom
o No Board rep on ITCom
• Authorize outgoing VPIA, incoming VPIA and VPOp, and incoming Summer President and VP to make alterations to the Board manual that are necessary for consistency with the totality GovCom’s proposals passed by Board
• Housing Receptionists reclassified as room and board positions at workshift rate
• CW Sup and Assistant CW Sup will both now 25 hours per week in Summer
• Alteration of all Member Resource student jobs
o In Spring 2010 each MR student job was reconstructed from the job advertisement; all job descriptions had been lost. POpCom did not have time to look more comprehensively at the department’s mission, or how each job helps to fulfill it. Accordingly, this work must be continued, hopefully in the Fall 2010 semester. Some changes that were made include the following:
 Disabled Access Coordinator renamed Disability Access Coordinator, new emphasis on advocacy. We might want to change this position to “Accessibility Coordinator”.
 HiCom Chair supervised by ED instead of MRS Supervisor, given responsibility of advertising open positions
 Elimination of Conflict Resolution Coordinator
 Member Events Coordinator now Member Events Coordinator, refocused on member events, supervised by the MRS.
 Coordinator of Outreach, Diversity, and Anti-discrimination still has a role in the hiring process. These functions should somehow be shifted under the supervision of the ED, who has the responsibility for HR within the BSC.
o Alteration of CK student jobs
o Creation of Healthworker program
o Creation of Summer Management Oversight system

April 29, 2010

• Elimination of InfraCom
• Elimination of PopCom
o Split into HR and OpCom
• Elimination of KitchCom2
• Elimination of SafeCom
