Update Your Officers with the New Online Compliance Agreement Form
If your student organization has recently transitioned the President, Treasurer, or Adviser positions, you can now update them via the new, online Compliance Agreement Form on the Student Organization Database!
If any other officers within your organization have changed, please make sure your roster is also updated. You can find an easy tutorial on navigating the database under "My StuOrg" and "Training."
Advertise Your Organization in the Get Involved Booklet
Looking for a cool way to advertise your student org? Each semester, the Student Activities Center (SAC) produces a full-color booklet, Get Involved, that highlights student involvement opportunities including joining or starting student orgs, an overview of arts and entertainment opportunities, as well as leadership and service programs and the benefits of being involved. Copies of the booklet will be handed out at Fall ClubFest and mailed to residence halls. As an advertiser, you will reach thousands of new students who are seeking ways to get involved, meet new people, and make their own ISU experience a meaningful one.
To reserve your space, just fill out the Ad Space Request Form by Wednesday, May 3. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
