On September 10th, the SBA Legislative Council met and voted on Amendments proposed to them by members of the SBA ByLaw Committee. These Amendments were just small improvements to the structure of SBA since the last amendments took place in 2004. Please read the proposed Amendments and vote if you would like them approved or denied. In order to amend the Constitution 1/6 of the student body must participate in the vote and it must pass by 2/3 of those that vote. Due to the Hurricane, the vote will open on Twen on September 14th at 4:00pm and will close on Tuesday, September 18th at 4:00pm. To vote, please log on to Twen and scroll to the bottom where your courses are shown. Please click on the one that says “SBA Constitutional Amendment Voting.” Then please review the document under “Documents” then “Proposed Amendments” and click on “Approved SBA Constitutional Amendments.” To vote click on customized polling and answer the 1 question poll about your approval or denial of the Amendments. Please participate and have your voice heard about these minor, but necessary improvements to the SBA Constitution. These amendments allow the SBA Legislature and Honor Council to function in a more efficient manner.
In the documents portion on TWEN you will find the Old SBA Constitution, the amendments that were proposed to the Legislature, and the amendments that were approved by the Legislature. Please vote your approval or denial of the document titled “Approved SBA Constitutional Amendments”. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Alex Mende, Cleburne Fant, or Sam Sanders.
