Bill No. 11-04
2010/2011 MUSC SGA
Committee:  Non-applicable

A Constitutional Amendment

Addition to Allocations Request Policies

Purpose: To ensure that all groups have the opportunity to receive SGA allocations funds and to ensure that no single group becomes dependent on SGA funds for any particular event.

Whereas the current constitution does not provide any restrictions that regulate the frequency with which a group can request funds for the a particular event.

Whereas many campus wide groups in the past have requested SGA funds for a particular event on a repetitive basis thereby becoming dependent on SGA funds as opposed to retaining a portion of their profits to fund their own future events.  

Be it enacted by the MUSC SGA assembled in regular session the following:

That Appendix B of the constitution be altered to read as follows.

Appendix B, SGA Allocations Fund Policies 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.

Let the section be amended to 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 it’s 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.
