This is the official resource to explain the development of the FCSSGA Legislative Issues Platform.
The purpose of the FCSSGA is to promote leadership development; to encourage responsibility, self-discipline and good citizenship; to stimulate the desire to render service; to foster unity in realizing the ideals of education and democracy; and to serve as the vehicle by which to communicate these concerns to the Florida Legislature, the Council of Presidents, the Association of Florida Colleges, and the Executive Committee of the Florida College System Activities Association.
Every year the FCSSGA advocates for the legislative issues directly impacting the 800,000 students that make up the Florida College System. These legislative issues are submitted by students from across the State of Florida, then move to the FCSSGA Executive Board for approval—only issues affecting the entire state will be approved. Once approved by the Executive Board, students will discuss the submitted issues with their respective Student Government Associations and clubs/organizations. A final vote on the approved issues will take place at the Legislative Conference. This is where FCSSGA will determine its official statement of position.
If you think you have an issue that matters to you and the students on your respective campuses submit a proposal HERE. Submissions will be accepted from August 6 – September 7, 2018. For more information regarding this process, please review Article XI: Legislative Platform of Florida College System Student Government Association Constitution.
