Film Board Minutes

Date:  August 31st, 2004


Meeting Started at: 6:05 P.M.


Unexcused Absences:  None.


Excused Absences:  Paul Lefief


Minutes: Passed


President:  We seemed to have lost a couple people during the summer; nominations will be taken for Treasury and Equipment Supervisor.  We should probably hold a membership drive (pizza night for members) to boost our numbers.  For K-Day, Matt suggested holding a guess the number of popcorn seeds in a jar, where we give away “free tickets” to the winner.  Near the end of September there will be a Hockey Festival.  Alumni from various teams will be there and Filmboard was asked to show a hockey movie, most likely Slapshot.


Vice President:  Encourage your friends to join Filmboard, the requirements will be adjusted and the more members we have, the easier they will be to fulfill.


Secretary:  Sent a sheet around to get everyone’s current address and phone number, should have an updated list sooner or later.


Treasurer:  School of Rock had an attendance of 76 people.


Publicity:  Those who volunteered, for putting out table tents, can find the permission slips above the mailboxes in the student organizations part of the MUB.


Equipment Supervisor: Niko will be previewing the film and needs help lifting it up around 9 P.M. on Wednesday.


Web page:  (Not Present) Webpage will be updated sometime this week.


Advertising: The light bulb burned out, Niko will be getting a new one.


Concessions:  All set to go for the new year.


Advisor:  New officers will need cards to get new keys and any ex-officer that still has a key should return it to Public Safety ASAP.


Old business:  Constitution was tabled until another time.


New business:  Nominations and voting was held for Treasurer, Equipment Supervisor and Advertising.  Scott Elliot is the new Treasurer, Niko is the new Equipment Supervisor, and Lisa Welling is the new Advertising Chair.  Anyone interested in becoming a projectionist should stay after the next meeting for info.  It was brought to Travis’s attention that our current screen is a safety concern, and we should possibly think about getting some mechanical stuff to make it go up and down.  During Thanksgiving break, maintenance is willing to wire the LCD projector to the projectionist booth so we can use that for advertising, instead of slides.  There may be a slight problem with the current setup, it will be looked into and be brought up at the next meeting.  Also, during the event the projector won’t raise due to technical difficulties, we will have a major problem of a big shadow cast onto the screen for the weekend.  There was a motion to hold a hat drawing if the Saturday night cleanup isn’t filled at the end of the meeting (aka Greg’s Magic Hat Motion).  The motion was passed.  Finally, ballots were tallied as the movie voting took place.  The results will probably be emailed. 


Meeting Adjourned:  7:00 P.M.


Dutifully Submitted,

John Jeske
