Treasurer’s Tip of the Week

Backtrack and close out old business.

Isaak Kifle USGA Treasurer

As the year begins to come to a close, make sure to take some time to go back and check to see that any unfinished business or issues are resolved. This includes paying old bills and tying up any other loose ends that have the risk of carrying over to next year. You don’t want the next executive board of your RSO to have to deal with issues that occurred before they came in. The end is near, but don’t relax just yet! Isaak Kifle, USGA Treasurer

President’s Corner

As the weather begins to warm up, take some time and go for a walk or hang out with some friends in front of Bartels.

To organizations who are currently transitioning between executive boards: take time to pass along any information and documents to the new executive board. Also, teach the newer members lessons you learned from your time as an executive board member. Try to build your organization so that it can grow and last for years to come.

I read this poem about two years ago, and I believe that is worth sharing to all the new leaders on campus:

 

The Indispensable Man

 

Sometime when you’re feeling important;

Sometime when your ego ‘s in bloom;

Sometime when you take it for granted,

You’re the best qualified in the room:

Sometime when you feel that you’re going,

Would leave an unfillable hole,

Just follow these simple instructions,

And see how they humble your soul.

 

Take a bucket and fill it with water,

Put your hand in it up to the wrist,

Pull it out and the hole that’s remaining,

Is a measure of how much you’ll be missed.

You can splash all you wish when you enter,

You may stir up the water galore,

But stop, and you’ll find that in no time,

It looks quite the same as before.

 

The moral of this quaint example,

Is to do just the best that you can,

Be proud of yourself but remember,

There’s no indispensable man.

 

Warm Regards,

Zani Imetovski

USGA President

Let me take this moment to congratulate the President-elect Richard Rotella and the Treasurer-elect John Foti on winning the elections; they will begin their terms on July 1, 2014. I would also like to thank the student body for the record-breaking number of votes that were casted; your voice was heard.

As summer is fast approaching, take this time to enjoy the outside and our beautiful campus. Meet up with your friends in the quad or go for a nice walk around campus.

Last Saturday the 31st Annual Scholarship Ball took place, and I would personally like to thank all of the alumni who came back and donated to the various scholarship funds at the Ball. Those gifts go directly to the students most in need and help support them through college.

As always if you have any questions or concerns feel free to call 203-932-7300 and leave a message or email USGApresident@newhaven.edu

 

Warm Regards,

Continuing the transition process

As you prepare to “pass the torch” and transition out of your leadership position, it is important to ensure that your successor is prepared to hit the ground running. The Office of Student Activities hosted a transition presentation by Campus Speak last Friday, and some of the suggestions from it include on-going job shadowing and creating a position guide to hand over. Different RSOs and leaders may have different processes, but all out-going leaders need to take some steps to ensure the continued success of their organizations.

Beginning the transition process

Treasurer Yearbook Photo

The transition process for new E-Boards is one of the most common issues that RSOs have. If you’re an executive leaving your position after this year, make sure to begin meeting with the incoming executive as soon as you’re elected/appointed. Don’t just read the job description in your constitution, also discuss issues that have come up over the year, areas that need to be addressed and things that you wish you had done differently.

It’s RSO Election Season!

Isaak Kifle USGA Treasurer

Isaak Kifle, USGA Treasurer

It’s around that time of the year again when many RSOs are electing their leaders for next year. If you’re still deciding whether or not to run for an E-Board position, make sure to be honest with yourself as to whether you want to, and can, commit the time required for the position. Don’t go for a position just because other RSO members want you to, unless you actually want to just as much or more. Make sure you’re also honest with others; while it’s good to be ambitious, you shouldn’t make too many unrealistic promises in order to get elected.
