I. Call to Order
II. Special Business
KHDX Selection Process – Process to selecting
bands: usually what happens we try toss up ideas and find bands that are popular
with the budget. Usually a facebook group for suggestions is created and then they
try to work with the response. Traditionally we have a vote for the spring
concert – usually has nothing to do with contacting the bands because they
usually do it before contacting bands, and then they can’t. “WE” – with tonya
hale and khdx staff – usually make the decision. Trying to get quotes can be
very trying for they have to wait to hear back from the manager’s band and then
we have to wait for tonya’s approval- however she is involved heavily. But
don’t worry money isn’t the only criteria, but it is hard to get popular bands
– because they are out of budget. There is no definite answer to who the
concert in the spring will be.
III. Announcements and Constituent Concerns
Why front street for water and village doesn’t?
Village and Hendrix Corner doesn’t pay water because they are one mane. But
Karla will look into a more detailed response!
Ashtrays outside the houses please!
THEFT? We leave our items outside the caf hoping
they trusting they are safe, however sometimes they aren’t. There is nothing we
can do about this unfortunately. If you don’t trust your peers leave your
personal belongings in your car or at your living space. But if you are
stealing others personal belongings – STOP. It is unnecessary and rude.
Expand the nurse department? It is something the
Administration is talking about, expanding hours. But at this point we don’t
have the proper space to house another nurse on duty however they are working
on a proposal. (:
IV. Departmental Liaison Reports
Recycling bin for Hardin – they looked at it,
but they didn’t see an immediate need.
Parking spots – sent someone to couch circle,
but no response just yet.

Roast – Good Experience. There were no gatherings outside Martin. Everybody
was in the party WOOOHOOO! Well attended event. Kinks we still need to
work on. Lots of positive feedback from the check points – watching the
people who are coming into the school. A thing to remember next time is
the alphabetize the guest list. However Martin didn’t provide checkers –
this is a problem. This is not ResLifes job. It is a labor intensive
process, so we need to have commitment by the student ran event with the
ON THE SMOKING POLICY discussion group – continues to meet and will be
doing a survey within the next week or two. WE really want to gage the

FOR EVERYBODY WHO PARTICIPATED! It was an awesome turn out for each event and
really speaks to the hearts of our students.
Request for Discretionary Funds
Prepared by: Environmental Concerns Committee- Emily Canon
and Katherine Dennis
Organization Name: Environmental Concerns Committee
For: Speaker Josh Fox, director and creator of GasLand
When and where this event will occur: Worsham, next semester
Master Calendar Confirmation: Dependent on Josh Fox’s
Details: We want to show the movie GasLand about natural gas
drilling. This is a pertinent issue to the students at Hendrix and the
community of Conway. Many landowners are being affected by natural gas
drilling, because it has very detrimental affects to the land and basically
renders the land worthless. In order to have a balanced event, we fell it is
necessary to have a panel discussion after the screening. Josh Fox will bring
insight to this topic, and hopefully draw many community members to the college.
Josh will also attend up to three classes to lecture on this issue including a
film studies and sociology class. This issue affects all of Arkansas, and we
see the event not only as a service to the student body but also the greater
community. Other panel members will potentially include an Arkansas landowner,
Mayor Townsell, a representative from Southwestern Energy, Gerard Matthews (a
journalist who has been following this issue in Arkansas), and the Mayor of
Dish, TX (who is featured in the film). The ECC will pay for the film rights
and Josh’s food and lodging.
– Roundtrip flight from New York City to Little Rock, AR
– Josh Fox’s fee
His original standard fee is
$7,500, but the lowest he will go is $5,000.

Event Details: Book group will be publicized to the
entire campus in November. Those who are interested will be asked to write a
paragraph explaining why they are interested in the group and how they feel
they will contribute as a member. Based on these paragraphs, RLC will choose fourteen
people for the group and put them into pairs with conflicting religious,
political, or cultural opinions. These fourteen people will receive free books
upon agreeing to participate in the group and agreeing to attend at least seven
of the ten meetings. At each meeting, a different pair will “lead” the
discussion, which will be comprised of part group discussion and part
discussion in pairs.
