Proposed SigEp Conclave legislation

In a triumph of transparency, HQ has released the list of resolutions to be discussed and decided on in Orlando.

The resolutions range from mere houskeeping (change references to the housing corporations's name for acuracy and consistancy) to changes in membership procedures and fee collections that could affect undergraduate members for years to come. Of course there are the usual boondoggles and this year's flavor of a "Worthy Cause" (decide for yourself which is which), and in this writers opinion there is room for a few more. The details for "How To" submit legislation are not exactly easy to find, but they can be found, and these resolutions can be uses as a guide to writing them up.

  1. Bylaws and Administrative Policies and Procedures, Sections C.1. and C.8 —National Housing Corporation of Sigma Phi Epsilon
