Dear Student Group Leaders,

Please read the following announcements carefully:

  *   Spring Re-recognition Due Friday

  *   Summer LEF/ARCADE Application


Spring Re-recognition Due Friday

The Spring Re-recognition cycle is open and is due TOMORROW Friday, May 19th at 11:59 PM ET.

Groups recognized for the first time this semester, Club Sports, FSILG groups and Student Governments are not required to complete the re-recognition process. Otherwise, your group will be required to complete re-recognition. Please read through and complete each of the following steps for your group.

Step 1 - Officer Response: The group president, or other officer, fills out the Engage form found here: <https://cglink.me/2cy/s391>. The officer must confirm that the group will not discriminate following MIT’s non-discrimination policy, agree to the MA state anti-hazing laws, confirm and define their group membership, and upload a copy of their constitution to both the form and their club’s page on Engage.

If you are an officer of multiple groups, you will need to complete the form multiple times. Only one response per group is required. If your group does not appear in the dropdown, and is required to complete re-recognition, please email <asa-groups at mit.edu>.

Step 2 - Member Response: Distribute the following Engage form to your members, and have at least five current MIT student members confirm their membership in your group by completing this form: <https://cglink.me/2cy/s392>. Students that are members of multiple groups will need to complete the form individually for each club.

The deadline to complete both steps of this process is this Friday, May 19th at 11:59 PM ET. Groups with late submissions will be penalized with fines unless late due to extenuating circumstances, which should be shared before the deadline this Friday, and will be suspended and/or derecognized if re-recognition is not completed at all.

To ensure groups are aware of their status in the completion of steps, we will be posting a running update on groups’ completion of re-recognition on our website: <https://asa.mit.edu/start-group/spring-re-recognition>. If you have questions about this process, please email <asa-groups at mit.edu>.


Summer LEF/ARCADE Application

Summer LEF/ARCADE applications <https://cglink.me/2cy/s395> are now open and due June 8. This cycle covers events in July - September. No extension will be allowed unless there is an extenuating circumstance.

Please review the funding guidelines <https://asa.mit.edu/lefarcade-descriptions-guidelines> before applying. ASA has voted to make several changes to the funding guidelines, including funding priority and restrictions on fundable items. In addition, please consider applying for other funding sources <https://asa.mit.edu/group-resources/group-funding> as LEF/ARCADE will be very competitive.


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


The ASA Executive Board
