Student Club Member Listing Worksheet

ACFAS Student Clubs are required to submit a report of planned activities for the semester. This helps the College understand how stipend funds are being used, and allows the College to work on other outreach ideas to assist the clubs in their goals for their membership. The report should be submitted twice a year: October 15 and February 15.
