source site The Student Government Association (SGA) confirmed its first Chief of Staff and passed an amendment to reform the Operational Appeals Board at Monday night’s joint senate meeting.

The board handles appeals from SGA, predominantly the Budget Review Committee (BRC), about the allocation of funding, SGA President Ryan Fox said.

And [doing that] rather than perhaps debating with them, does not sit well with me.” But if the amendment did not pass, Fox said, there would not be an appeals board in place at all for the approval of the Constitution.

The amendment stated the role would go to the Parliamentarian, but because the Parliamentarian must be unbiased, a majority of senate members decided vice chair shouldn’t be the Parliamentarian. The senate will vote on a vice president in the fall. Junior senator Mike Splain was nominated as Chief of Staff out of several candidates for the position, and confirmed by a vote of 16-1 after answering questions from senators ranging from how he handles criticism to whether he uses trays in the dining hall. One vote was voided for having “I don’t care” written on the ballot. Splain has been a member of SGA since September, has served as the secretary of Music and Entertainment Industry Student Association (MEISA) and was Fox’s campaign manager earlier this year. He said he is excited to take more of a leadership role in the organization. Since it is a new position he has a few goals in mind, but wants to help the position fully evolve. منتدى الفوركس “I hope this year to help the senate make the process easier to become a senator and to stay a senator,” he said. “I will always be open to suggestions and expanding this new position however necessary.”
