The federal government has be gun to do business primarily by the internet. This includes contracting out work to be done. However, many small and medium size businesses that would be willing to offer low bids on the con tracts do not yet have technology so phisticated enough to apply for them. by Melissa Collins The annual meeting of the Board of Trustees took place Oct. 24 and 25. This meeting was the first of three meetings that will be held during the current aca demic year. The next two meetings will be held in February and April. One of the more important decisions was to rename the LA auditorium.

A plenary session was attended by not only the trustees, but representatives of the fac ulty staff and students. Following this session, the board divided into three sub committees. Each of these groups met m different areas. The Defense Department created the ECRC to bridge the gap. There are currently 11 ECRC cen ters scattered around the continental United States. (The closest one to Laurinburg is in Atlanta.) Congress re cently authorized the Department of De fense to expand the program and build five more ECRC centers. As well as build ing a site on the campus of St. Andrews, the ECRC will also be adding sites in New Orleans; Dallas; Winchester, Pennsylva nia; and Largo, Florida.

Board credits Hefner with bring ing ECRC and the benefits it offers to St. Andrews. “St. Andrews Presbyterian College, and the entire Laurinburg/Scot- land County area, owe a deep debt of gratitude to Congressman Bill Heftier for his tireless, enthusiastic and effective promotion of Laurinburg and the college as the site for a new Electronic Commerce Resource Center.
