Requirements for contributing members and program participants

Every individual who receives AHEGS Recognition must fulfill the following requirements:

  • 20 Hours of Commitment

    AHEGS Recognition can only be provided to those who have provided 20 hours or more towards the commitment within the academic year. Proof of this commitment needs to be submitted as part of the Contributing Members Recognition Form and can consist of things like:
    • Delegated responsibilities from executives
    • Attendance records at events they were helping
    • Records of events they were running
    • Work relevant to responsibilities such as marketing material, event organisation, designs, artwork, recordings, resources, etc.
    • Meeting minutes for meetings they were part of

  • Summary of Training/Induction

    All contributing members must complete some sort of formal training or induction process as part of their commitment to be eligible for AHEGS Recognition. For executives, this generally consists of the Executive Training Modules and the Executive Training Presentation. For subcommittee members, program participants, peer mentors, volunteers and other non-elected positions, your Club Execs will be responsible for providing this training/induction.

    The training material provided to non-executive contributing members and program participants will need to be provided as part of the submission for the Recognition Form submitted at the end of the year.

  • Student Code of Conduct

    In cases where someone has breached the Student Code of Conduct, AHEGS Recognition may be withheld. Depending on the situation, this can be part of the grievance resolution process or may be determined independently. Appeals should be made directly with the Clubs team.
