Due to multiple students failing to attend events after RSVP’ing through Google forms (official method), SCMA is implementing a “Attendance Policy”.
To ensure all members will be given the same opportunities to all SCMA events, any unexcused absence within 24 hours of an SCMA event of which a member has RSVP’ed for will result in a warning to the absent member via email. This will be the only warning. It is difficult to execute SCMA events if members do not show up as they have promised by an RSVP. If a particular member continues to have an unexcused absence without proper notification to the SCMA Executive Board within 24 hours, he/she will be blacklisted from attending all future SCMA events, with exception to the Career Fairs, for the academic year. This rule will be strictly enforced to ensure a better quality event for all SCMA members.

Membership Polo Policy
All members must pick up their polo during the time they were a paying member within SCMA. As a member, it is your responsibility to pick up your polo during your membership time in SCMA (during the current academic year, August-May). We provide many opportunities through our weekly Sunday newsletter for members to receive their polo for every academic school year, in both the fall and spring semesters. Any questions regarding picking up a polo or office hours availability needs to be addressed during the academic year, while still a paid SCMA member. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
