SGA delegates new member to hiring committee, approves business cards and seeks replacement for SSCCC

The Santa Rosa Junior College Student Government Assembly approved a new recruiting committee member, confirmed a business card budget, and discussed an alternate representative for the California Community Colleges Student Senate at its meeting in Monday.

The SGA has unanimously approved Student Body President Abrea Tillman to join the Student Recruitment, Integration and International Program Committee. The program aims to reach K-12 voters, community organizations, and other groups who recruit potential SRJC students, and is currently screening director applications. Tillman will participate in the candidate review and interview process throughout.

Tillman cites his training on the hiring committee and his involvement with SRJC.

“It’s always a learning process,” Tillman said. “I want my time with student government to reflect how I can engage students more.”

Business cards

Zach Miranda, student government coordinator, confirmed the SGA’s approval of $250 for student government member and trustee business cards. Maps were drafted and initially revised over the summer; they display each member’s name, position and contact information.

“I’ve been waiting for this,” said Melissa Ramirez, Vice President of Student Life at Petaluma, “It’s super helpful and helpful to be able to hand them out when talking to people.”

SSCCC Alternate

SGA is seeking a replacement for the California Community Colleges Student Senate. The position involves regular attendance at SSCCC meetings and taking on the roles of students unable to attend. The meetings highlight student government, events, and policies among 14 area colleges.

“When I go to these meetings, I come back with more appreciation for SRJC,” said Delashay Carmona Benson, student adviser.

To better serve voting equity and proportional representation, SGA members hope that someone engaged in the campus community but new to student government will apply. Members noted that monthly meetings usually take place on weekends, allowing for busy schedules, and highlighted potential fellowships.

“It’s a great way to get your foot in the door,” Miranda said.
