Budgets Contract go out

At this time, the Budget Committee will have drafted a copy of each club/organizations’ budget contract emailed to all clubs and organizations.  Because of the Covid 19 crisis, clubs and organizations that receive an annual funding contract for 2020 will not be required to sign, date and return to the SGA.

Due to the Covid 19 crisis, annual funding from 2019/2020 will remain in club and organization accounts for use again in 2020/2021.

PLEASE NOTE: Any remaining annual funds left in the club’s University account at the and of the academic year, will be deducted from the final allocation the club will receive for the next academic school year. It is with that in mind that clubs are encouraged to responsibly use all of the annual funding it receives within the course of one (1) academic school year (approximately September 1 to mid April).
