For many RSOs, e-board election season is coming up. We want to make sure you are aware that you can update your roster for the 2017-2018 academic year shortly after new officers are assigned during elections. The Student Life office will once again hold registration on the Community system for 2017-18, which begins August 1st 2017. However, you can complete your roster, and make other minor adjustments now to help make the transition seamless for the new officers.

Some benefits of updating your roster prior to August 1st:

-Given there are no other changes to the group, registration will take only a couple of clicks to re-register for the year

-The only way to request events is to be an active organization for the academic year. So, the sooner registration is successfully submitted, the sooner your group can request events. Please note only group administrators can request events on Community

-By assigning new group administrators, this will aid in communicating helpful information with the new e-board

-You can assign as many or little members the “Admin” role as you like, but we need at least 1 as a point of contact

Below are some tips for updating your roster on the Community system:

How to add new members to Community:

  1. Log into Community and select your group
  2. Go to “Members”
  3. Scroll down, click, “Add/Invite A Student”
  4. On the “Status” drop down, change it from “Invited” to “Active Member” or “Admin”. Note, the “Admin” role is for students who will update registration, make changes to general group information, and request events. “Active members” will not have access to the system
  5. Type in the member name under “Student” and select when it pops up
  6. Select the position. If the title doesn’t fit under the options, select “Member”

If one of your e-board members is already on the Community roster, but you want to change their title:

  1. Log into Community and select your group
  2. Go to “Members”
  3. On the student’s name, click on the edit icon (a piece of paper with a pencil). From there you can change the position title

If one of your e-board members is already on the Community roster, but you want to assign them admin privileges:

  1. Log into Community and select your group
  2. Go to “Members”
  3. Check the box next to the e-board member you want to assign as an admin
  4. Hover over “Actions” and select “Make Admin”
  5. You can also revoke admin privileges by following steps 1-4, instead select “Remove Admin Privilege”

If you anticipate group information or constitution changes, you can make those as well under “Group Details” and “Documents”, respectively
