    1. Summer Fitpass Discount Proposal
      1. Mr. Jorgensen: Nicole came in and presented numbers trying to change our pass system to one pass. If you get in the door, you get into classes. In the end, this will create more revenue and better customer service. This pass was approved for this last semester and we are trying to continue it into the the summer. We have adjusted the price to account for drop in classes. For the whole summer, the price will be $50 and $25 for half of the term.

        Mr. Jorgensen: $85 for the full semester.

    2. Bylaws
      1. Mr. Deakyne: I talked to Blake. If we can get the Bylaws together before next week we could approve Thursday. Otherwise, we could hold a meeting on May 3. Let’s shoot for next week.
    3. New Field Maintenance Rates Proposal
      1. Ms. Belz: This is for informational purposes only. We voted on it 3 years ago. We only charge a field maintenance fee to groups over 250 people. We picked the number 250 because 90% of student groups have fewer than 250 members. My proposal is to simplify the rates by grouping into an average number. I am also proposing that one-day events cost less. Consecutive day event fees add up to higher revenue.
    4. Chair Elections
      1. Mr. Deakyne: I emailed Zach and Spenser to see if they want to run. We could do a Skype interview, but they are 8 or 9 hours ahead. We will discuss this further after the meeting, since we still have time, when we jump into executive session.
    5. Mr. Jorgensen: I have a proposal from two students for a project to combat the Friday and Saturday night party scene. It has grown out of a class project from two students. It is not likely to come to fruition. They were wondering what it would take to bring the event from vision to completion. With construction there may not be any space. This is just for your information.
  2. Buff Up The Rec
    1. Mr. Deakyne:We are getting into design development. This phase consists of working out details, placing doors in rooms, interior and exterior details. If you can make the workshops, please try to attend. The pool is shaped like a buffalo.
