The UW-System and the State of Wisconsin has made many changes in rules
for spending money this year. If your organization received money from
the Student Association, you need to make sure you understand all the
rule changes prior to making any purchase or expenditure arrangements.
Failure to do so may result in you not being reimbursed for an purchase
or allowed to proceed with an expenditure. For instructions on spending
segregated fee funds please go to www.activities.uwm.edu.
UNION MAILBOX EXPANSION
Student organizations with Union Boxes 121-228 will need to make sure
they remove all their mail and other items in their mailboxes by October
19th. New mailboxes will be installed on October 20th. Mailboxes 121-228
will be unavailable October 20-24th. Any mail delivered during that period
will be held and put in your box on October 25th. Those groups will keep
their same box number but will get a new combination number. Any group
with box numbers 1-120 will not be affected and will receive normal mail
delivery during these four days. We apologize for any inconveniences
this may cause, but due to the rapid increase in the number of organizations
on campus this expansion project is necessary.
