RSO Update: 13-Feb-2017
Feb 13, 2017 by Brandon Price
The final SAFA budget request training is this Thursday, February 16 during X-Period in SC 214. Remember, attending one of these budget request trainings is a requirement to be eligible to receive SAFA funds.
Budget requests for Fall 2017 must be submitted on OrgSync by 11:59 PM on February 17. You will be contacted after submitting your request to set up a hearing time. Hearings will be held February 21-23.
If you have questions, contact the SGA VP of Finance at firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember to make sure your RSO roster on OrgSync is up to date, as well as your officer listing is current by February 20. The "People" tab on your OrgSync page is the only official organization roster used by our office. If people are missing it may affect your organization's ability to reserve rooms, submit SAFA requests and more.
Students who are no longer attending UCA will be removed from your rosters automatically this week, so your organization may see it's total membership drop. As per UCA policy, any RSO with only 4 or 5 student members will be placed on probation. Any club or organization with less than 4 student members on their roster may lose their recognition and RSO privileges.

Volunteers may sign up individually or as part of a group, and all volunteers receive a BigEvent t-shirt for their participation. Where will you be on March 11th?
