Student Name of OrgSync Portal Administrator

You must designate a student contact person who will be managing your OrgSync portal. This person will become a member of the OrgSync Student Ambassador's and receive communications about trainings and requirements for recognized student organizations related to OrgSync.

This must be a student, not an organization advisor (would be a great role for a secretary or publicity chair).
