  1. What do I do if I am not able to see a group I am a part of?  The easiest way to become a member is to request membership by searching for the group in the SAO360 system and clicking on the "Request Membership" button.  This membership request is sent to Officer 1 of the group, who is given the option to accept or reject your request.   Likewise, Officer 1 is able to invite you to join the club or organization as a member, and you will need to accept or reject the request.
  2. How do I change the Officer 1 for my group?  If you are currently Officer 1, do not remove yourself from the Officer 1 position. It will automatically happen once you complete the following steps. To change your role to the new leader, select your group from your dashboard. Once you are on your group page, select the "Change Officer 1" option under the "Update" dropdown and enter the NetID for the new Officer 1. Click submit and the new officer 1 and advisor will be notified to accept the change in position.
  3. Do I really need to register my group?  Yes on an annual basis.  Officer 1 has the ability to register your club or organization for next year.
  4. What modules do I need to add to my event request? Add any module you feel you need in order to support and plan your event. If additional modules are needed, your Activities Liaison will comment on the request with the additional modules that you will need.
  5. Can I sign a contract on behalf of my club? No. All contracts must be reviewed by university council and signed by an approved university official. This is to ensure that all contracts protect both the student group, student leader planning the event and the university.
  6. My speaker has offered their service for no fee, do I still need a contract? If the speaker is a University of Notre Dame Faculty or Staff Member, a speaker contract is not required. Any other speaker, no matter the fee, is required to sign a Speaker Contract.
  7. Does my club name need to be on items that we imprint? Yes. Your groups full official name must be located somewhere on any items you decide to imprint.
  8. Can we use a vendor who is not listed on the licensing website? No. All imprinted items must be sourced from vendors who have applied to be a licensee for the university. New vendors may apply for a license through the licensing office.
  9. What is the difference between my advisor and my activities liaison (AL)? Your advisor is a group-specific faculty/staff member dedicated to the oversight of your group. Your activities liaison (AL) is an SAO/Student Affairs staff member dedicated to assisting groups through the process of programming. For example, if you are part of your hall government, your rector serves as your advisor, while Breyan Tornifolio serves as the AL for hall councils and the Hall Presidents Council in 2020-21.
