Proposed Changes to the Bylaws of the Associated Students

The Student Council, through a standing committee recently completed their annual review of the Constitution and By-Laws. Each year the Student Council is required to review these governing documents to ensure we are maximizing our impact on student success and access, campus life and shared governance. 

To summarize, the Constitution & By-laws Committee has added and/or developed the following areas to the proposed documents:

  • Formatting: Fixed punctuation, grammar, redundancies and indentations. Established consistencies in the layout (i.e. headers, bullet points, fonts and table of contents).
  • Organizations Officer Position: Refocused positon to better support student advocacy and emergency services provided by the Office of Student Involvement.
  • Student Council Responsibilities: Added “operating a motor vehicle with approval from advisor” component to general responsibilities to streamline the approval/reimbursement process.
  • Hiring Committee:  Fixed the discrepancy in committee makeup. Previously, there was an uneven amount of voting members on committee with the advisor serving as an ex-oficio member.  Advisor has been added as a voting member to ensure continuity from year-to-year, formalizes the process and ensures that the supervisors have a voice in the process. 

Proposed Bylaws of the Associated Students with Track Changes as of May 3, 2016

This is an exciting time for the ASG and students of Clover Park Technical College. We look forward to continuing to serve the student body both now and in the future.

The Student Council is scheduled to formally vote these governing documents at their regularly scheduled meeting in mid-May. Open forums are scheduled for Wednesday May 4 immediately following Clubs Council in Building 23, Room 212, and Tuesday. May 10 from 12:30-1:30 PM in Building 23, Room 212. Before these documents are presented for adoption, the Student Council will also be hearing recommendations and comments to the proposed documents at their regularly scheduled meeting on May 16 at 1:00PM in Building 23, Room 209.

Should you have any comments, questions or feedback about these proposed revisions, please contact Jen Petersen, Vice President of Student Council and committee chair of the Constitution & Bylaws Committee at or 253-589-5685.

Our ASG selection process for official Student Government positions begins every spring quarter. A hiring committee (predominately made of students, along with advisors from the Office of Student Programs) will review applications, conduct interviews, and hire students into the various 19 position titles based on strengths and ability to work as a team. This process, as opposed to an elections-based system, ensures that the best-qualified candidates are selected and are able to do the work required to represent the thousands of CPTC students.

Leadership positions are an 11-month commitment lasting from August until June. Not only is your service to students great for your resume and a fantastic way to develop skills, but it is also pays $10.43/hour for 12-19 hours per week.
