American River College’s Club and Events Board (CAEB) Vice President Mary Stedman and Director of Activities Kylie Marx were appointed to the judiciary committee that will make the decision to suspend or remove Student Senate Director of Communications Tamara Dunning at Tuesday’s CAEB meeting.

A petition was filed by Senate Vice President Valencia Scott to form the committee after allegedly “unprofessional” and “disruptive” comments were made by Dunning during a Senate meeting on Jan. 14.

Valencia Scott, Director of Communications for CAEB, was absent from Tuesday’s meeting.

A judiciary committee “is a way for us to administer any sort of discipline that is necessary, and it’s hopefully the most just and accurate way to do it,” said CAEB president Justin Nicholson.

The judiciary committee will be comprised of the Senate President David Hylton II and two members each from both the Senate and CAEB.

Other topics at the meeting included the passing of bill S16-01, which allocates an amount up to but not exceeding $300 for Club Day funding.

Club Day will be held on Feb. 11, with a theme still yet to be decided by the board.

Director of Finance James Cortright is in favor of a Valentines theme for Club Day in hopes that it will improve on last year’s turnout.

“I think it’s a very simple way to get people involved,” Cortright said.

Talks involving an app for students, called Grad Guru, also took place.

The app was suggested by CAEB Adviser Juan Miguel Blanco.

“It basically bundles all your (school) information on your phone,” said Blanco, “It’s a great app to have.”
