Changes to SGA for upcoming spring elections

The Laramie County Community College Student Government Association is accepting applications for the 2014-2015 academic year until April 15.

SGA has also made some changes for the upcoming spring elections. The change is designed to ensure that both LCCC schools and the Albany County Campus have equal representation. Therefore, there will be four SGA senators elected from each academic school.

Potential candidates must be full-time (12+ credits). Those who are appointed to the position will be eligible for a stipend of up to $600 a semester, based on the fulfillment of job duties.

Another project that SGA and Student Life will work together to update is the 1987 policies of the Student Fee Allocation protocol. The goal is to add the traditional Student Fee Allocation Committee decision to the SGA list of duties for the 2015 spring semester. This change would allow year-round decision-making access from those who requested it. This process would also offer SGA senators an education in government and budgeting finance. SFAC will continue to have two faculty club advisers; however, it will have more representation from students in the SGA.
