The Board of Co-Operative Activities elected a new student-at-large representative Thursday.

The new representative, Connor MacKelvey, is a junior transfer student from the University of Pittsburgh and an early childhood education major.

The Co-Op board also approved a motion that would allot $939 to SRU’s golf club.

Under the motion, the golf club has to have at least eight members by spring to receive the money to participate in tournaments.

According to Ben Motyl, Vice President of Financial Affairs, the budget was decided by giving the club $0.40 per mile round trip for two cars.

“If the club doesn’t have eight members by the spring tournaments, they will have to have a new budget reapproved,” Motyl said.

Cathy George, the business manager of SGA, said that the advisor of the golf club is working with a local golf course so the club can practice for free.

“By requiring that the club have eight members, it gives them incentive to keep on going,” George said.

Motyl said that the budgetary reserves are currently at $35,523.50, but the audit for the 2012 – 2013 year has still not gone through, so they are expecting it to be significantly more.
