Members of the Students’ Association were reminded of their duties and warned of potential consequences of neglect at Wednesday’s meeting.
After an overwhelming vote to grant $1,000 to the Student Dietic Association, SA president Connor Best addressed Congress about committees, office hours and the possibillities of impeachment.

“Any work you’re doing for SA will count,” he said to Congress while explaining the policy.
Class officers are required to work for one hour per week while academic building and residential hall representatives are required to work 30 minutes per week.
If an officer or representative fails to meet the designated number of hours worked for four weeks or misses four meetings, he then becomes eligible for impeachment.Â Furthermore, any combination for lacking the two components can result in the degrading eligibility.
Although a system of logging hours through a Google document was originally proposed, it was reversed by vice president Julianne Hart. She said,Â “I think it’s important you all are in the habit of coming down [to the SA office.]”
SA then distributed money to students in need and asked its members to sign up to serve on the SA committee. The external committee lead by the president, handles large-scale projects such as support of the TOMS event last year. The internal committee lead by the vice president focuses more directly with student life on issues such as chalk and dance policy. The finance committee lead by the treasurer handles the appropriations fund worth $5,000 this semester.
A cap of 16 members was placed on each committee.
