Brittany Carls – Candidate Treasurer

Hello! My name is Brittany Carls and I am running to be your next SGA Treasurer. In my three years at UIS, I have served as a CAP Honors Mentor, Leadership for Life Mentor, Hunger and Homelessness Chair, and the Student Activities Committee Spirit Coordinator. I have also held leadership positions in numerous student organizations, and I am an active volunteer in the Springfield community.

As Treasurer, my first goal will be to work with the Student Organization Funding Association (SOFA) to better serve student organizations. This starts with holding forums so that student organizations can have their concerns addressed, and can better understand the funding process. This will improve the communication between SOFA and the student organizations they serve, and also increase the overall efficiency of SOFA’s operations. I also want to increase SGA support of the Student Organization of the Month program in order to recognize the outstanding work that organizations do.  By increasing the ties between SGA, SOFA, and the Student Organizations they serve, I will work to support the growing student life on campus.

My primary goal as Treasurer will be to ensure student fees are used as effectively as possible. To that end, I will work to hold follow up meetings with departments that receive SGA allocated student fees. This will allow student government to ensure that limited student fees are allotted effectively. I want students to be informed and have a greater voice in matters pertaining to their student fees.

Throughout my term as Treasurer, I will leverage my experience in student organizations and leadership activities to work tirelessly for all students. Thank you for your support, and I look forward to serving as your next Treasurer!
