Dear Student Group Officers,

Please take note of the following announcements:

1. Anti-Hazing Acknowledgement Required
2. Fall General Body Meeting Scheduled
3. Meet the new director of SAO!


1. Anti-Hazing Acknowledgement

All groups must provide acknowledgment of compliance with the Massachusetts
Anti-Hazing Law every year.  This is a strict requirement of maintaining
your ASA recognition status.

The online form is available at:

All groups must provide confirmation by Friday 10/22 at 11:59pm.  After
that there will be a $25 fine for late submissions, one week after the
deadline groups that have not submitted a form will be suspended and fined
$50 for late submissions, and three weeks after the deadline any remaining
groups will be derecognized.

Two sets of groups are exempt from this requirement:
- ASA Recognized FSILGs that already submitted acknowledgement to the FSILG
- Club Sports that have already submitted acknowledgement to the Club
Sports Council and DAPER


2. Fall General Body Meeting Scheduled

The Fall General Body Meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday, November 3,
at 7:30pm.  More details including a location and an agenda will be sent
closer to that date.  All groups are required to send a representative - a
person may represent multiple groups, but they will only get a single vote.


3. Meet the new director of SAO!

Leah Flynn, the new Assistant Dean and Director of Student Leadership and
Engagement Programs, will be starting this month. She will have a meet and
greet for students on Thursday, November 4 from 4pm-5:30pm in W20-549. Light
snacks will be provided.


Please feel free to email asa-exec at mit.edu with any requests, questions, or
other inquiries.
