No Walk-in’s allowed – CPF advisor needs to post the agenda with the groups presenting at least 72 hours prior to the CPF Meeting on Wednesday. The CPF Committee reviews each event. Just because your event was previously approved the prior year does not guarantee approval in the future.
If you do not get approved for funding then you may appeal to the Financial Affairs Committee (FAC) for approval. If you are denied by FAC then you may appeal to the Board of Directors (BOD) and they will have the final approval on whether your RSO will receive funding.
Meeting Time FAC: Mondays 11am/Legacy Suite
Meeting Time BOD: Bi-weekly Mondays 4pm/Council Chambers
RSO will receive an email from Chair of CPF committee with a PowerPoint template and a designated timeslot for 2 members of the RSO to present why they should receive funding. Email will also include policies and procedures.
