Joint Finance Committee | Mode of Meetings for FY22
The Joint Finance Committee (JFC) will be holding all Summer 2021 meetings online. Student Organizations will be sent an email outlining their allocated time slot for the JFC meeting, and are expected to attend 5 minutes in advance to prevent any delays. Attending RSO Representatives are advised to be informed on the items being requested so as to save time and allow for a smooth and efficient procedure.
Spectators are allowed in the meeting but must keep their microphones and cameras switched off. All spectators are required to inform the sitting JFC members of their identity and organizational affiliation to ensure correct meeting minutes are recorded.
Summer JFC shall be organized on 8th and 22nd July at 6:00 pm EST, and 31st July 2021 at 9:00 am EST. If additional sessions are to be added, the same shall be reflected on this page in this section.
For the upcoming Fall and Spring Semesters, JFC is planning on being organized in person. More information about this is to be released soon.
Joint Finance Committee
Committee Chair: John Graves
SGA’s Joint Finance Committee is a financial allocation body, chaired by the Joint Vice President of Finance, that is responsible for determining allocations of the Student Activity Fee. Other major responsibilities include but are not limited to, the preparation of a budget for over 400 student organizations, reviewing of bills, developing close relationships with student organizations, and ensuring the fair usage of allocated funds from the Student Activity Fee.
The Joint Finance Committee is often the main point of contact between SGA and student organizations. It is also responsible for ~$2 million of fellow students’ money. This places tremendous responsibility on the committee. The main goal is to foster the growth of diverse interests and communities on campus. JFC is a tightly knit team of students who are all committed to progress and service. Therefore, committee member attendance at JFC meetings on Thursdays 6-8 pm is mandatory.
Duties of the committee include meeting with representatives from student organizations to help them with receiving financial allocations, hosting budget sessions, drafting policy proposals, contributing to joint efforts between Communications, Information Technology, and any other branch in SGA.
