The Constitution of Sun God Archery at UCSD

Our Constitution is our governing laws which regulate what we do and how we do it. It establishes our mission and guides the club forward by helping create a vision of what SGA can and should be. The constitution empowers our officers to take the lead and help SGA grow and thrive while protecting our members by prescribing their rights and outlining the rules and regulations of the club.

The Constitution can only be amended by super majority vote of the established membership and all members must be notified of the changes.
