  • Do any SGs pay an officer manager/stenographer?

    My SG is looking to delegate office manager duties and stenographer duties to someone outside of the senate. For this we're looking to hire an individual. My questions then are 1) how much is a fair salary for an individual doing this work (I'm not sure how many hours a week this would take)? 2) Are there other SG's you are aware of that presently do this that I can contact with further questions or details on the arrangements?

  • Is there a national standard for the minimum GPA that SGA officers members and officers must have?

    We have a student leader that will drop below the required 3.0 per semester as a requirement to hold a position in SGA leadership. Is this something our own organization sets the standards on, or is there documentation of the GPA requirements through the ASGA organization?
     

     

  • Should a student be allowed serve as an officer if he/she has never had a class at our college?

    I'm really just writing you because I have a quick question and I was wondering if you could help me out with it. You see, I have been wondering for a while if we can have a student officer fill in a spot if they are not enrolled in classes. I guess that this student would in the future enroll in the fall semester but I just didn't know if our constitution allowed for us to have a student to be an officer if they had never finished a course in our school. I guess that this student I'm thinking about did enroll for the summer semester but apparently withdrew and I"m really wondering if this would be a problem since our constitution says that in order to be an officer you have to "maintain a GPA of at least 2.0". You see, it does say that you have to be enrolled in at least 3 credit hours but it does not include the summer semester. So I'm thinking, "well, this wouldn't matter because it is the summer semester... but what about "maintaining"? I guess this student wouldn't be maintaining during the summer even if the student wasn't taking classes because this person has never really had a class. I mean, this person would enroll for the fall... but... I just don't know if it would be smart to give an SGA officer position to a person that has never completed a course in our school or if it would even be unconstitutional?
     

     

  • Should fifth-year students be permitted to serve on Student Government?

    My SGA is debating whether or not to change our By-Laws to exclude 5th year "super seniors" from running in general elections. Fitchburg State College is a 4 year institution and we think it's only fair that you're allowed to run only if you're going to be going into your forth year of less. We are quite torn with this as of now. We do however have a clause that would allow 5th year 'super seniors' to fill vacant positions after elections are completed. Some of us feel this way because we want to protect the 4th year students and we think it is fair that way. Any help would be much appreciated.
