ASG Associate Member Program Applications Now Available

The application for Associated Student Government Associate Member Program is now available. The application can be submitted via HogSync. Students should log in with a valid uark.edu email address. The Associate Member Program is open to students who meets co-curricular requirements. Students can apply at any time throughout the academic year, but the program will begin meeting in September, so students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

The Associate Member Program is geared toward improving the campus community and providing interested students with the tools and knowledge necessary to become involved in student government and other service-based organizations on campus. As a program affiliated with the Associated Student Government, AMP will show the associate members the inner workings of ASG, introduce them to the people who hold office, and encourage them to try out the different branches of government. By participating in AMP, associate members will have the opportunity to learn about leadership on campus, improve their professional skills, plan and carry out campus-wide events, and of course make many new friends and positive memories!

Associate members will also serve as vital agents of ASG by reaching out to students, faculty, and organizations to identify unaddressed issues on campus and develop ideas to combat them. They will be given the opportunity to work with ASG senators and leaders to draft legislation and implement their solutions. Meetings will be held bi-weekly at 6 p.m. Wednesdays. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact AMP Coordinator Beck Williams at asgamp@uark.edu.
