Board members are subject to these policies:
  • Conflict of Interest Policy (adopted 8-12-2013)

  • Document Management (Retention) Policy (adopted 8-12-2013)

  • Whistleblower Policy (adopted 8-12-2013)

  • Statement of Principles for Board Members

    1. Board members must remain focused on the club's mission and their role in carrying out that mission.  The club functions solely to support the football team.  Club members, especially board members, must bear in mind that their function is to serve, not be served.
    2. It is, therefore, incumbent upon all board members to faithfully attend all board meetings as called by the Club President and all meetings of committees to which they may be assigned as called by the committee chairs.  Prior notification of circumstances resulting in unavoidable absences such as illness, vacation, inclement weather, etc. should be given to the President, or committee chairs, respectively.
    3. All board members shall faithfully attend all club luncheons unless previously excused by the President.
    4. All board members should enthusiastically support all projects of the club with their attendance and participation in accordance with their personal convictions and physical abilities.  Excused absences are granted if the activity conflicts in any manner with the members personal standards and beliefs (e.g. Vegas Night fund raiser).
    5. If subsequent to being elected to the board, a member finds it difficult or impossible to adhere to the foregoing principles, they will, keeping the best interests of the club in mind, resign their position, enabling the President to appoint someone willing and able to devote the needed time, energy and resources.
    6. Above all, conscientious board members, as club ambassadors to the public in general and the Michigan State University community in particular, will strive to increase club membership and expand the club's horizons at every opportunity.
