The Appeals Board is a part of SGA’s Judicial Branch. The Board will hear any cases where one party feels another party has violated any principle or material provision of an SGA Guiding Document. The Appeals Board consists of 5 voting members: three members from the Student Judicial Programs, and two representatives from SGA, nominated by the Nominating Committee and passed through Joint Legislation.
There are only three instances where the Appeals Board will meet: reject or uphold candidate disqualification decisions of the Election Board; determine the final stipends if an SGA officer appeals the stipend awarded from the Stipend Review Committee; and resolve accusations that an SGA officer has violated a material provision or principle of the SGA Guiding Documents.
If one of these instances has been met an individual will contact the Convener, a staff and/or faculty member at UMBC, who has the responsibility of determining a time and place for the meeting of the Appeals Board.
(Sakellariou and Hu will be joined by three Student Justices from Student Judicial Programs to form the five member Appeals Board.
