Fall 2020 Mandatory Student Organization Officer Training 

For Fall 2020, all Mandatory Officer Trainings will be held virtually, and capacity will be 500 people per a training. Dates/Times/Zoom Links can be found below.

All recognized student organizations looking to remain on active status must attend a series of Mandatory Student Organization Officer Training listed below as well the requirements found here. Student Organization Officer Training will cover essential materials for all student organizations. The requirements for each Recognized Student Organization are as follows: 

1. President must attend the President Training 

2. Treasurer must attend the Treasurer Training 

3. At least one officer must attend 2 out of the 3 additional trainings listed below: 

                   a. Where is the Money: Funding and Fundraising 

                   b. Best Practices for Student Organization Event Planning 

                   c. Stand Out from the Crowd: Marketing and Recruitment Techniques 

Note: Officers may attend sessions as a representative for more than one organization, provided they are the required officer to attend (i.e. If a student is the President in 2 organizations, attendance at one President Training fulfils that requirement for both organizations). In addition, the same officer does not have to attend both additional training. This may be two different members of the organizations. 

At these trainings, University staff will provide important new and/or updated policies and procedures. If you have any additional questions, please contact the Office of Student Activities at studentorg@psu.edu, 814-863-4624, or stop by in 103 HUB-Robeson Center. 

 Please note that there is a capacity for each session, as seen next to the room locations below. Once a training has reach capacity, no additional students will be allowed in. Please plan accordingly and attend earlier sessions to avoid missing due to full capacity. Showing up late to a session will result in having to wait until the next available session.
