At the fourth SGA meeting of the semester, members received a lesson in Parliamentary Procedure and a first-hand experience in writing legislation.

Associate Professor of Communication Dr. James Heflin spoke to the SGA body about the dos and don’ts of Parliamentary Procedure. According to Heflin, he has been instructing the Cameron SGA in the regulations of their meetings for 50 years.

During her presidential remarks, SGA President Sidney McCormack announced that SGA would be hosting a voter registration table from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. on Oct. 1 in the MCC. Students are encouraged to stop by and register to vote.

The governing body also got a chance to practice writing legislation. The students divided into groups of three or four and chose a topic that they would like to see put into action. After the session, SGA members were encouraged to type up their legislation and turn it in to the Legislative Committee for editing.

Vice President Nikki Kirk is the head of the Legislative Committee, and ten students volunteered to assist Kirk.
