SPRING 2019: DRAFT AMENDMENT TO ARTICLE IV OF THE UNC SCHOOL OF LAW CONSTITUTION

Constitution Amendment Summary: This is a proposed SBA Constitutional Amendment to remove the Deputy Treasure position from the  SBA Constitution. During the summer of 2018, Student development transitioned away from Student Activities Fund Office (SAFO), changing the financial reporting and accounting system used by student organizations. With this change, the Deputy Treasurer position has become unnecessary and severely limited. This amendment will remove the position from the Constitution; however, the position will remain in the SBA bylaws, where it can be used at the discretion of future SBA boards.
