LC evaluates COl'lStltUtlOl13l revisio Thom Altman, Political Writer The Eckerd College Organlzatlon of Students CECOSD, as we know it, was formed back ln the school year 1980-Bl. ECOS was almost 520,000 ln debt. So, the Student Admini- stration, at that time, felt it was necessary to restructure the budget by producing a new Consti- tution ln order to reduce the deflclt. Their new Constitution also ellmlnated two officers from the Executive Council: the Director of External Affalrs and the Human Resource Dlrecton Though thls Constltutlon served its purpose ln reducing the defl- clt, lately there have been com- plaints concerning the wording of many of the articles. According to past-president Andy Haines and current ECOS vlce- presldent Cand president-elect for next year's ECOS? Wayne Harwell, the sections deallng with the role of the Executive Council, the role of the Dean of Students and the veto power of the president are not clean Chris Roby, also a newly- elected ECOS officer for next year, agrees, and is worklng on a newer, more comprehensive version of our Constitution. The major problem with the current Constitution seems to be the document ltself. The impre- clse wording of many of the articles and long lists of bylaws make it dltflcult to interpret. Though the re-wording of state- ments ln the Constitution ls the maln thrust of this group of leaders, there are also changes ln the structure of ECOS which will be submitted to the Legislative Councll for ratificatlom The proposed changes Include: t a change ln the date of elections f specification of the role of the Finance Dlrectorand Finance Director-elect concerning budget proposals t the addition of Election and Media Commlttee Direct- ors to the Executive Councll t the appointing of someone to maintain an archives for future reference t appointing the Constitution Regulations Commlttee the rlght to decide judicial review 4 the separation of student programming and student government by removing the Student Actlvltles Board from the Executive Council The change of electlon date has met with little lf any opposltlom Most agree that the extra tlme ln office for newly elected offlclals would be beneficial for the organization. They could learn the responsibilities of their position earller ln the academic year. The second proposal is more of a clarlflcatlon than a change. ln the past there has been some question to whether the Finance Director or the Finance Director- elect has the responslbillty of drawlng up the budget for the This would make the budget proposal a joint effort, lf ratified The proposed Election and Media Committees Directors as Executive Council members would delegate responsiblity for running elec- tlons and regulating campus media. The current Constitution doesn't provide for these needs, and there has been some difficulty ln deciding who ln ECOS, if anyone, should head these actlvitles. The new Constitution would designate the ECOS vlce-president as the keeper of the archives This would ensure the safe-keeping of club charters and other documents of lmportance, which ln the past have had a tendency to be misplaced. At present, there ls no record of the actlvltles and decisions made by previous ECOS members. upcoming yean The major change ln the Constitution would be the removing of the Student Activities Board CSABD from the Executive Council. This is met with strong opposi- tlon by past-president Andy Haines. Halnes revealed, "6OZ of the money allocated for student actlv- ltles goes to the SABN He claims, Uthls money must be kept ln student control.n But Harwell, Roby and Campus Actlvltles Director Barry McDowell feel ECOS ls getting too Involved ln student programming and ls tal llng short of their pledge to urepresent the interests of the student body, promote campus unity, and lobby on behalf of student Interests on and off campus.N Granted, the SAB ls a councll under ECOS headed by the Dlrector of Student Activities, but that ls not the sole purpose of ECOS. Roby points to the problem of the late dlstrlbutlon of fall semester flnal grades. NThat's the klnd of thing ECOS should be concerned with.n Haines feels the reason SAB duties have fallen on the Executive Council in general is because we have yet to have a Nvery dedicatedu Director of Student Activities. He has a lot of faith in the system, and insists it can work Wwith the right Dlrectonn lf implemented, the change would free ECOS of any obllgatlons to the SAB. The Student Actlvl- tles Board would be an independent organization, thereby permlttlng ECOS to attend to other responsi- billtles. lt wlll be up to the Legisla- tive Council to decide lf this alteration ln the structure of our student government ls Justlfled. Students are urged to plck up a copy of the current Constitution at the ECOS office, and are ln- vlted to make Inquiries and voice opinions to ECOS members 9
