10. I’ve started a student organization, now what?
Now, you must begin to promote your club. Get the word out and let the students know about the awesome, new student organization that has been started on campus. It is imperative, however, that you apply for budget review, so that you can receive funding. You’ll submit a budget request (available at sga.king.edu) and set up a time to interview with the Executive Treasurer and the Management and Budget Committee.
