ASLCC approves fund request for New Jersey trip

Posted on June 6, 2013 | in News | by

Lane’s student government has provided the student body with applications to go to the United States Student Association’s 66th Annual National Student Congress at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J., to debate and vote on USSA’s student priority issues and leadership for the upcoming year.

Students from across the nation will spend July 19-24 presenting agendas to the National Student Congress regarding school system issues. Because Lane is a member of the USSA for one final summer, Lane students will have the opportunity to discuss and vote on the association’s presented priorities.

ASLCC passed a funds request of $4,180, allowing four students to attend the conference. These students will not have to worry about paying for transportation, registration, lodging or food. Fifty percent of the attendees must be students at large, meaning they cannot hold a position within student government.

ASLCC Vice President Anayeli Jimenez said the student government will hold fundraisers that may allow more than four students to go.
“Ideally my goal is to get six people to go, but right now we only have funding for four,” Jimenez said.

Applications are available in Building 1, Room 210 and on myLane and are due to ASLCC June 18 by 12 p.m.
