About The Stipend Review Committee
The Stipend Review Committee is an accountability system that will ensure that each SGA officer who receives a stipend is completing the job they were hired for. Twice a semester, the Stipend Review Committee will determine if each SGA officer who receives a stipend should receive either their full stipend, or half of their stipend, for that particular pay period.
The Stipend Review Committee will not act as a grounds for impeachment if a member does not receive their stipend – however, it may prompt for further investigation from other members in the SGA. All decisions made by the Stipend Review Committee will be made publicly available via the SGA website and the SGA group on myUMBC.
The Stipend Review Committee consists of 2 Senators, 2 Finance Board Members, 2 representatives from the Executive Branch (Executive Vice President, Treasurer, Vice President of Student Organizations, Cabinet Members, etc.), and the SGA Advisor. With the exception of the SGA advisor, Stipend Review Committee members have a 1 semester term limit. The Stipend Review Committee is chaired by the Assistant Speaker of the Senate and the Vice Chair of the Finance Board – alternating responsibilities each quarter.
