A Constitutional Amendment 

Clarification of Appendix B regarding the Allocations Request process

Purpose: To amend Appendix B of the constitution regarding the Allocations Request process.

Whereas: Portions of Appendix B are currently included in the Allocations Guidelines on the SGA website, and therefore, do not need to be repeated in the constitution.  Additionally, clarification is needed regarding the frequency of receiving funds for a particular student organization.

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:

Appendix B reads:

1) Student organizations may request any amount up to *50% of the total event cost. The SGA may vote to deny the request, approve the request in its full amount or approve an amount less than that which is requested.

*If the event is educational in nature, an amount greater than 50% of the total cost may be requested. Additionally, if the SGA is asked and decides to officially co-sponsor the event, rather than simply financially support the event, an amount greater than 50% may be requested. A co-sponsored event means that the requesting student organization and the MUSC SGA would share not only the cost but also the promotion and management of an event.

2) All events or activities supported by SGA funds must be advertised and open to participation by the entire MUSC student body. Furthermore, the participation fee must be the same for all MUSC students.

3) According to State of South Carolina law, SGA funds may not be used to make donations of any kind. Accordingly, net revenues from events supported by SGA funds may not be donated unless the funds contributed by the SGA have been returned in full prior to the donation being made. 

SGA funds cannot be used to pay dues or purchase individual memberships to professional organizations.

4) A group may only receive funds for a particular event no more than two consecutive years or three years in any given five year period.

Let Appendix B read:

1) Student organizations may request any amount up to *50% of the total event cost. The SGA may vote to deny the request, approve the request in its full amount or approve an amount less than that which is requested.

*If the event is educational in nature, an amount greater than 50% of the total cost may be requested. Additionally, if the SGA is asked and decides to officially co-sponsor the event, rather than simply financially support the event, an amount greater than 50% may be requested. A co-sponsored event means that the requesting student organization and the MUSC SGA would share not only the cost but also the promotion and management of an event.

2) All events or activities supported by SGA funds must be advertised and open to participation by the entire MUSC student body. Furthermore, the participation fee must be the same for all MUSC students.

3) SGA funds cannot be used to make a direct monetary donation, pay dues, or purchase individual memberships to professional organizations.

4) A recognized group may only receive funds no more than two consecutive years.
