Presidential succession at top of SEA agenda The most pressing issue at the June SEA meeting was the manner in which the organizat ion will de a l with the impending retirement of President David Edgar . Since the SEA bylaws make no provision for succession should the president not be able to ful- fill his or her term, SEA members con- sidered whether to hold a special elec- tion for someone to complete Edgar's term or to name Vice President John Frazer acting president until the next scheduled e lection in November. A decision will be made at next month's meeting. In other business: Possible solu- tions to the parking crunch expected this fa ll continue to be explored. The idea recently put forth to have valet parking has met with several logistical snags, including insurance and liability issues. More research is being conducted before a recommendation is made. SEA will sponsor a 50/50 raffle at the picnic July 14. All faculty, adminis- trators and staff are eligible to win, and tickets are available from any SEA rep . Also at the picn ic, there will be a drawing for three free parking spaces for the 2000-01 school year. Funds for

the spaces, $360, come from an anony- mous donor. The SEA voted to dona te $350 to the Manchester Chi ld Development Center. The money comes from a vari- ety of fund-raising activities, including sales of candy bars and chances for the parking pass drawing. The SEA sold 230 tickets for the San Diego Padres' June 16 game against the Cincinnati Reds that featured the 25th anniversary of the KGB Sky Show. The Padres provided some extra fireworks of their own that night when Bret Boone's three-run home run keyed a five-run first inning. The Padres won the game, 8-5. 16th Annual Staff Employee Recognition Picnic When: Noon, Friday, July 14 Where: Copley Library Lawn What: Alice's Wonderland cos- tume contest, caricaturists, lunch, ice cream bar, clowns, balloon hats, Astroglide, door prizes, SEA 50/50 drawing, the a nnual President's TE.A.
