Subject: SGA’s Suggestion Bylaw Revision – ReJOYce

Ms. Wilson,

First, I would like clarify the different between article V of your constitution and the SGA suggestion. The main difference is that the Suggestion makes it more clear how the standard set forth in the article will be measured. It also makes room for the possibility that there is more than one interpretation of the scripture that the article quotes. It allows members to “abjure and refrain” from the behaviors that you find to be out of line with your beliefs, which allows anyone to be a voting member of your organization as long as they follow those guidelines while they are a voting member.

If ReJOYce disagrees with SGA’s suggestion, the best scenario would be for ReJOYce to create language similar to that which is contained in our recommendation. If ReJOYce chooses to make no changes to its bylaws, then I feel full organizational status will be very difficult to attain. It isn’t my place to say definitively that ReJOYce would be approved or denied,because that depends on a vote of the SGA Senate.

However, it is my opinion that the Senate will not look favorably on your organization doing nothing to remedy the situation.

I was also interested to know whether you are to be SGA’s main contact with ReJOYce. We have yet to hear from the President of Vice-President of the organization, as it is not customary for SGA to deal so closely with adviser. Since this is to be a student lead organization, it would be beneficial to both ReJOYce’s leaders and SGA that a relationship begin to form with your student leaders, as well.

I look forward to ReJOYce attaining full status, but I feel that it is necessary that these very important changes to your bylaws are made.

Respectfully,

This is a request for clarification of SGA’s suggested revision of Article V of ReJOYce’s bylaws. From SGA’s point of view,please state SGA’s understanding of the differences between Article V of our bylaws and SGA’s suggestion.

If ReJOYce disagrees with SGA’s suggested revision, will ReJOYce be denied full organizational status from SGA?
