E. PID Bruchhauser
I have been in contact with the newspaper and working with
them to make sure that all the information is up in time in
the hard copy and on the web. I have also been working with
great race and that is coming along great. If anyone needs
to meet with me please feel free to contact me.
F. AG Moreno-Campos
He has been reviewing the recognitions and the re-recognitions
and he is unsure if that is one of his duties. I am willing
to continue to do so, but perhaps if there was a section under
his duties in the constitution that it is stated, it would
not be in question. He has reviewed the clubs that are up
for recognition and all but one of them have everything in,
the one that doesn’t have everything in is the Literacy
Council. Therefore I fully support the other three clubs.
G. GAD Fallstich
She reported on the happenings up at the rally. She and three
other students went and were able to be on the floor as M.
Herrera guests. GAD was also able to speak on behalf of Western
New Mexico University and the bills in which were trying to
have passed. If there are any questions or comments please
feel free to contact her. We should be finding out about the
bills in the upcoming weeks. She will keep us updated.
H. Student Regent Miller
I am here to update you all on the recent meeting that the
BR had. It was mostly on the fiscal reports and things in
that manner. However we did talk about the fact that the tuition
waivers that we offer to Texas Students, Colorado students
and Arizona Students could possibly be no more. UNM is trying
to pass a new mandate that will not allow us to offer that.
If there are any questions that you might have contact me
or your GAD.
