Organization Orientation & Training
I understand that ALL recognized Club/Orgs including Sport Clubs MUST attend Registered Student Organization Training (RSOT) on September 29, 2014 at 4:00 - 6:00 PM in Reeve Ballroom, 207.  OSA encourages two members of the organization to attend.  There will be several break-out sessions and two members will be able to cover more sessions.

Failure to attend will impact the groups' recognition status.
  Attendance will be taken at the end of the training.

I agree
Selected

Recognized Student Organizations must be in good standing with the university.  The re-recognition paperwork must be approved by the Oshkosh Student Association (OSA). The organization representative completing this paperwork will receive an approval email after the paperwork is accepted by OSA.
