Rule of Order 12: Conflicts of Interest

  1. Members of the Undergraduate Senate must declare in a public forum, including the Senate website, all student organizations for which that member is an officer (officer is meant to mean President, Vice President, Financial Officer, Director, Advisor, Core Member, Chair, Intern, Associate, Fellow and any and all titles of leadership conferred by an organization). The release of this information must include both the title conferred and group name (and relevant nicknames). This information must be updated at the beginning and end of each quarter, and should be continuously updated, as necessary.
  2. Any member of the Undergraduate Senate with a conflict of interest may, at the discretion of the Executive Committee, demand division of a bill in order to ensure her/his ability to vote on the portion of the bill for which no conflict of interest exists (cf. Rule of Order ).
  3. On any vote of appointment or certification to an office for which a member of an Association legislative body was a candidate, a strong conflict of interest shall be assumed to exist and said member must abstain.
  4. On any vote apportioning funds to a student organization for which a member of the Undergraduate Senate is an officer, a strong conflict of interest shall be assumed to exist and said member must abstain.
  5. If on any vote that a member of the Undergraduate Senate believes that he/she has a conflict of interest that could be seen as affecting the member's ability to vote on the issue in question, that member must notify the Presiding Officer that a conflict of interest exists. In such instances, the member in question is strongly encouraged not to vote.
