How ASGA Can Help You
Super Student Governments

Why should you join ASGA if you're already a top-notch Student Government?

If you're one of the few "super" SGs in America, ASGA can still help you become more efficient and successful with our research, resources, and training sessions.  Your time in office is short; plus, you're balancing classes and jobs in addition to family and personal responsibilities. ASGA's resources will maximize the limited time you do have to work on SG business.

Through analysis and knowledge of precedent and trends, you can continue to improve (and provide your successors with the knowledge and tools necessary for continued growth). ASGA can help you reach your full potential by:

1. Enhancing Voter Turnout. Continue to improve your voter turnout through innovative marketing techniques, use of technology, strategic use of polling locations, timing of elections, and the number of days elections are offered.

2. Improving Public and Media Relations. Develop a strategic publicity campaign to better promote your services, projects, and issues to students and administrators while also improving coverage in your campus press.

3. Enhancing Administrator Relations. Develop strategies to improve your organization's relationship with administrators and faculty, including making sure SG has a voice on all schoolwide committees and boards.

4. Providing In-Depth Analysis. More evolved SGs can use ASGA's help to analyze very institution-specific issues/problems you're having. We can provide assistance via phone or e-mail, or our "SG Consulting Group" subsidiary can personally visit your campus, conduct a detailed examination, and provide guidance and recommendations.

5. Imparting Knowledge of SG Trends Nationwide.
ASGA's SG Database is like "Google" for SGs—you can quickly and easily search through our SG research to find what you're looking for, saving you countless hours. Our catalogued data and SG precedents will help when you're working on projects and need to know what other schools have done.
  6. Analyzing Your Strengths & Weaknesses. We'll provide you with consulting support and advice based on ASGA's knowledge of trends and precedent, as well as what "like" institutions have achieved. Once you've identified areas for improvement, you can contact peer schools for advice and ask our panel of SG experts for feedback.

7. Conducting Research for You. You can save a great deal of time, money, and effort by letting ASGA do research for you on SG-related issues. When it's completed, we'll add the information to our database, where it will also benefit other SGs.

8. Developing Signature Programs. Create "tangible" services for your students that will gain respect and visibility for your SG.

9. Connecting You With a Vast Peer Network. Through the SG Database, conferences, and online forums, you'll be able to communicate and share ideas with peers at institutions across the country. You'll receive tips while also sharing your expertise with others, contributing to collective SG knowledge that will help support all SGs.

10. Recognizing Your SG as One of the Best. At ASGA's National SG Summit, super SGs will have a chance to present their own research and experiences in front of their peers. ASGA also plans to offer national awards for SG excellence in the coming years.

American Student Government Association  

The American Student Government Association will provide all Student Government leaders and advisors nationwide with networking, research, and information resources and will teach them how to become more effective, ethical, and influential leaders on their campuses. ASGA also will promote the advancement of SGs, conduct research as the nation’s only “SG Think Tank,” and advocate the importance of having a vibrant, autonomous Student Government organization at every institution in America.
