The Student Finance Board fully funded two organizations and partially funded two others at its meeting in the Brower Student Center Room 104 on Sept. 18.
Members of the Association for Computing Machinery requested $500 for their 2019-2020 eboard retreat. The event in question was an escape room in Princeton, which is set to take place on Oct. 13.
The goal of the retreat is to bring “members closer together,” according to the official SFB agenda, and would be the first ever retreat that ACM members would be able to attend. The event was funded $300 for the escape room fees and taxes. The additional $200 request for food costs was tabled pending discussion with the organization’s SFB liaison.
Board members then discussed the base budget for Delta Sigma Pi. The fraternity was requesting $2,000 to bring a motivational speaker to campus on Oct. 15 in the Brower Student Center Room 225. The date of the event has yet to be determined.
The organization additionally requested $500 for its five-day professional week, which is set to take place Feb. 10 through Feb. 14 in the Business Building. SFB fully funded both events.
The Student Chemistry Association was fully funded $98.50 for supplies for its Community Fest Science Demo, which occurred on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 10 a.m. at the College’s football field by Trenton Hall.
The Healing Arts Organization requested $30 for printing allowances and $39 for canvases. SFB did not fund its request for printing allowances, but funded the request for canvases.
HAO was also funded $63 for food and supplies for its Paper Marbling event, which took place on Tuesday, Sept. 24 in the Education Building room 206.
In addition, HAO requested $52, $118.86 and $96.50 for its “Coil Pot Making” event, its “Self Care with Bob Ross” event and its “Draw with Us” event, respectively. The events will take place on Nov. 12 in the Education Building Room 206, Dec. 6 with the location to be announced and Oct. 22 in the Education Building Room 206, respectively.
The meeting concluded with the board voting to raise the threshold to approve special appropriations to $500. The threshold was previously capped at a total of $400.
