January 28, 1999 Faculty Senate Conf Room
4:00 p.m. Red Hill Building


A.  Attendance: Darrell Buffaloe, Scott Campbell, Kimberly Carter-Cram, Darin Dehle, Scott Evans, Brenda Malepeai, Ernie Naftzger, Denise Clement (for Sandy Mitchell), Matthew Romriell, Anna Weskerna
A. ACTION: Motioned and carried that minutes of December 3, 1998, be approved.

B. Organization Banners: Darin Dehle stated he has received some banner design samples (showed samples). He suggested to have four background colors to choose from to make it more dynamic, with the organization design and name on the banner, and possibly use black and orange as borders. One sample he preferred in particular had one or two banners per pole, anchored at both top and bottom, and banners would be double-sided. He said he would have more information at the next meeting. Darrell Buffaloe commented Mike Willets distributed letters to campus organizations regarding the banners. He said he has received numerous calls from organizations asking about the banners. Darrell suggested having only the organization name on the banner to cut costs and because some organizations do not have designs.

C. Change of Bylaws: Scott Evans stated he reviewed the Faculty Handbook and Bylaws and is not sure if the motion to change the bylaws as stated at the last meeting would hold a lot of weight. He commented if the Speakers and Artists Committee were taken away from Campus Planning, then who would they report to? The purpose of the proposed change was to streamline the purpose of the planning committee. He suggested to streamline the title, but keep the same purpose. Paula Jull, Chair of Speakers and Artists Committee, commented the Speakers and Artists Committee needs an avenue to the Faculty Senate through the Campus Planning Council and they don't feel they impede the Planning Council. Brenda Malepeai suggested the Speakers and Artists Committee send their minutes to Campus Planning Council and have someone from Speakers and Artists attend the Planning meetings at some point. She suggested to leave the current arrangement as is. Ernie Naftzger commented the process seems to have been working for some time, so there is no need to change it. Darrell Buffaloe commented the Speakers and Artists Committee should remain a part of the Campus Planning and Cultural Affairs Council as they are a part of planning and the Planning Council can help them in getting space and scheduling needed for events.

ACTION: Motion to change the bylaws by changing the title and purpose of the Campus Planning and Cultural Affairs Council (as stated at last meeting) was defeated.


A.  Capital Projects: Scott Campbell outlined current projects in progress and commented he planned to publish them in the "New & Notes." Darin Dehle discussed six major projects for this year: 1.
