47-21: An Act to Receive Contingency and Reserve Funds for the Think Big Carnival

PURPOSE: To provide Contingency and Reserve (C&R) Funds to the Campus and Community Relations Committee (CCRC) for use with the Think Big Carnival.

WHEREAS, MSA should be more interactive with Stephens College, Columbia College and the Columbia community as a whole, and

WHEREAS, MSA should be more visible to the campus and community as a whole and positive public relations should always be a goal, and

WHEREAS, this event will further all of the above goals, and

WHEREAS, representatives from MSA and the Student Government Associations (SGA’s) of Stephens College and Columbia College have been meeting since the middle of last semester to plan, coordinate, and execute a community service event, and

WHEREAS, such an event has been planned and will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters and consist of a carnival day of activities for the “littles” who do not have “bigs”, and

WHEREAS, the SGA’s of both Stephens College and Columbia College have already dedicated money to the project and all three campuses have agreed on reconciling budgets upon the completion.

THEREFORE, be it resolved by the Missouri Students Association Senate that $1083.00 shall be transferred to MSA Senate from C&R for the explicit purpose of providing activities for the Think Big Carnival.

Respectfully submitted,

Brendan Webber
Campus and Community Relations Committee Chair
