The Student Association Executive Council (SA Exec) holds weekly closed meetings to discuss the state of the Student Association. Composed of the five governing offices, the president and vice presidents of the financial branches generate the agenda for the Senate. They also share information regarding the status of their boards, discuss and plan for upcoming events, and discuss any rumors or the buzz from students on campus. Each Board gets one vote.
The Finance Board oversees club funding and helps clubs manage their treasuries and budgets. The board reviews, allocates, approves, and monitors student and club budgets and financial requests (i.e., conference funding, socials, capital equipment purchases, and special event funds). They fund everything from club socials to academic and professional conferences, trips, dances, and Holiday Banquet. They are actively advised by the Assistant Director of Campus Engagement.
