Student Programming Training Workshop: In August 2008, the USU planned and implemented a student programming training day with the intent that participants could satisfy the Fiscal and Scheduling certification training requirements and be able to pass the Event Planner Quiz. Topics that were addressed included: contracts, negotiating, publicity, volunteer retention, communications, campus logistics and ASI legal liability. Twenty-five of leaders from Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) participated.
At the end of the training, 100% of participants passed the Event Planner Quiz and were deemed fiscally certified. These student leaders now had full access and permission to plan events for the ASI, approve expeditures, and authorize events.
