Rechartering Workshops for 2016-2017 Academic Year

Every student organization at UNM is required to recharter each fall regardless of when they chartered the year before.  This year's rechartering process will begin on August 3rd and is only for groups who were chartered during the 2015-2016 academic year.  It is mandatory that at least 1 officer (we encourage more) attends a Recharter Workshop before submitting their paperwork.  The workshop will take approximately 45 minutes and you must be there for the entire process.  View the Re-Charter Checklist for things to prepare for in the rechartering process.  Seats are available on a first come, first served basis. If you are late you will be asked to attend another workshop in the future.  Below is a schedule of upcoming Rechartering Workshops.
