The Board of Directors convened on Thursday to talk accountability, action, and ad hoc committees.
Thursday found the LUSU Board room more crowded than usual; Directors Mason Ainsworth and Michael Bolliger from Orillia provided a physical presence at the weekly meeting.
The LUSU board dished out monetary helpings to assist a socially conscious sports team, a Black History Month dinner, and a summer reporter position last Thursday.
Last Friday’s board of directors meeting concluded without much flourish, with most decisions made nearly unanimously – even previously controversial ones. Ratification of the Life Support club – a pro-life student group that was the source of intense debate last year – went off without a hitch. It was moved to a vote by the Executive Committee without debate, a procedure that requires two-thirds of the board to carry. Surprisingly, it passed with only one member voting against: Director Brent Moyer.

It was a rocky start to the year for LUSU’s board of directors. Last week’s meeting, moved from its usual Thursday slot to Fridays at 5:00pm, was a caricature of efficiency. And efficient it was, wrapping up in a total of two minutes before being adjourned due to lack of quorum.
It wasn’t hard to tell that last Thursday was the first meeting for LUSU’s new Board of Directors. The meeting, one of only two for the new board before Christmas break, was seemingly taken up as much by confusion over correct procedure as by actual business.
After a so-called “emergency” meeting and a weekend of orientation, LUSU’s new Board of Directors is ready to get down to business. Last year’s board was called together Thursday night to approve the results of the recent board by-elections, which saw a 14.9% turnout. This came after the original elections failed to meet quorum, with under 7% participation.
