We encourage ALL registered student organizations to be represented, hoping that one or more (and yes, advisors are always most welcome) officers will make plans to attend the leadership workshop in accordance with Student Activities and Student Government Association policies.  Each organization must have two members attend the program in order for the organization to be eligible for SGA Funding.  At least one member MUST attend the SGA Financial Appropriations Session and each member must attend a minimum of four sessions no later than Friday, January 15, 2021.  Attendance during live sessions will be verified by WebEx usage reports.  Please login using your YSU credentials.  Students viewing recorded sessions will be required to submit a form upon completion of the session.

YSU Student Organization Policies (Section B, Number 8) on Registration of Student Organizations states:
"After becoming officially registered, a minimum of two organization officers must attend a leadership workshop conducted by the Student Activities Office."

Student Government Association Financial Path (Title III, Section 301, I)
