A Constitutional Amendment 

The amending of the duties of the executive officer position of President of the SGA.

Purpose: To amend the duties of the executive officer position of President of the SGA.

Whereas: The SGA executive officer position of President no longer organizes and chairs monthly meetings of college student government presidents (the Presidents’ Council). The position still organizes and chairs one annual meeting of MUSC student organization presidents but they are of “campus-wide” organizations. In addition, the duties of the President shall be updated to reflect current practices of the SGA. 

Be it enacted by the Medical University of South Carolina Student Government Association assembled in regular session the following:

That the Student Government Association Constitution be altered to read as follows:

Article III - Section 7 reads:

The President:

•   Shall be the chief executive officer of the SGA.

•   Shall be the official representative of the student body of the Medical University of South Carolina, including attending meetings of the Board of Trustees, faculty/administration meetings, taking part in ceremonies and events, and other responsibilities.

•   Shall be responsible for the overall operation of programs, finances and continuity of the MUSC SGA.

•   Shall chair the Executive Committee and preside over meeting of the SGA every two weeks.

•   Shall chair the Student Welfare Committee.

•   Shall organize and chair at least one annual meeting of all MUSC student organization presidents.

•   Shall plan and conduct SGA elections as chairman of the Executive Committee, unless running for reelection.

•   Shall work closely with Parking Management to make plans for, publicize, and coordinate Returning Student Parking Registration, including the approval of proxies.

•   Shall be in Charleston over the majority of the summer to make plans for the upcoming year.

•   Shall keep in close contact with Student Programs staff to ensure proper organization of all procedures and activities.

•   Shall have the power to veto any decision made by the SGA.

•   Shall organize and chair monthly meetings of college student government presidents (the Presidents’ Council).
