Mandatory Student Organization Officer Training

Fall 2019 Mandatory Student Organization Officer Training

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 on the Maintaining Recognition page . 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:
    1. Where is the Money: Funding and Fundraising
    2. Best Practices for Student Organization Event Planning
    3. 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 fulfills that requirement for both organizations). In addition, the same officer does not have to attend both additional trainings. This may be two different members of the organizations.

Note: Affiliate Organizations are not required to attend these trainings. Club Sport organizations are required to have their Treasurer attend a Treasurer training.

If your organization becomes frozen, the next available training is on September 26, 2019. Please see below for the exact times and locations.

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. Those attending the trainings are required to attend the full duration. Leaving early will result in a Student Organization not receiving credit for their attendance.
