asking for free tickets when given funds -
If you attend the event, the expectation should be if you purchase tickets, incentive exists for giving away free tickets in exchange for appropriations
Representative Huey clarifies that this is not an incentive for funds, also that the appropriations committee is reviewing policy
VP of Finance Bhojwani clarifies that the conversation about funds occurred three weeks after the appropriations meeting and that the goal if the discounts or free tickets are offered, we can support the club in the best way possible

Wrapping up discussion about corporation strategy task force, going to companies, other opportunities to partner with companies, tied in with capital campaign Q&A
 President Chalmers
: Where do you start to see students being involved in outreach to community partners?
: That’s a great question. We do want students more civically engaged. We are
well within our right to have students provide public comment. There are a fair amount of development projects in the area impacting housing and safety and we want to know the impact on students. I would like to see you all take more initiative in engaging in these conversations. Giving you all a voice is my primary responsibility.
 Executive VP Barnes:
 What role has the student voice played up until this point?
: There is a need for more internship opportunities and more outreach. One of our conversations has been around social media, but are there other things that could go out in
terms of updates about what’s happening in the community?
 Representative Goetze
: Is there room for SGSU to work with you on metro cuts?
: I think we could work together, but we could definitely look into that.
 President Chalmers
: Tonight we are having a conversation about a letter to Eastside Catholic Board of Trustees.
 Executive VP Barnes
: An idea brought up last year was the idea of a student discount list where local businesses offered discounts in order to build partnerships. This would maybe be a good way to build those relationships.
Old Business REPA 20140212 Bike Lockers (Meg Green, Max Snyder)
 Representative Green moves to add Max Snyder to the conversation  Representative Davalos seconds the motion The motion passes unanimously
 Max Snyder 
: This is a big capital campaign and the answers will come in time.
 Representative Green
: We met with a facilities representative today and he answered
most of the questions that we’
ve all been having. They are the following: Main Points -
If we choose to appropriate money, we are not responsible for future funding -
Responsibility for maintenance would be with public safety rental spaces, but it would be possible to talk to the CAC as a fall back -
SGSU would work on the policy and reinforcement of the policy -
Usage and rental policies for transportation concerns are typically handled by Dept. of Public Safety -
Facilities is committed to seeing this project through, bike amenities is a priority in the fund and for facilities -
This project is much farther along than we originally believed -
Architects will be interviewed in the next couple of weeks -
It would be possible for the project to move forward if SGSU were to split up its appropriations by appropriating a smaller amount to get the project started, and then assessed the need for more later on in the process -
MIMP is required every ten years and that is just a mandatory part as an institution -
Absolute need for the project to be done is $5,000, but the recommendation was to fund $8,000 to account for unseen issues and in time decide whether to move forward with another payment of $4,000 -
The $8,000 would help to get the process started and if, after progress has been made, we might appropriate more money, half of the SURF fund and more than half of what was asked for -
There will be a list of stipulations with the project:
SGSU receives a percentage of the usage fee to begin the process of replenishing the SURF
