A Constitutional Amendment 

Clarification of President’s duties of participation in elections

Purpose: To clarify the conditions of the SGA President participating in management of elections if he/she is running for any executive officer position.

Whereas: The constitution currently states that the President shall plan and conduct elections, unless running for re-election. “Re-election” refers only to a President that is running for the same position he/she holds.  The condition should also apply if the candidate is running for another executive officer position as well.

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 oversee completion of a Campus Safety Walk in conjunction with Public Safety and Parking Management to be held every two years.
  • Shall organize and chair at least one annual meeting of all MUSC campus-wide 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.

Let Article III - Section 7 read:

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.
