  • Representatives are required to attend the annual SGA Retreat.
  • Representatives are required to work three events per semester, one of which must be a clean-up duty.  Sign-up sheets for these events will be made available at meetings.  It is each representative’s responsibility to be on time for his or her shift or to find a substitute if a conflict arises.
  • All representatives must work a one-hour shift at ALHAMBRA, the SGA’s biggest event of the year.
  • Representatives are required to work one of the scheduled projects each semester.
