Good Standing

In Spring 2015, the GPC General Assembly modified the GPC Bylaws to define “good standing” for a Represented Area, where a Represented Area is defined as any department, division, college or school with graduate or professional students.

For a Represented Area to remain in “good standing” with GPC, a Representative for the Represented Area, or a proxy, must attend the majority (at least 3 of 4) of GPC General Assembly (GA) Meetings each semester. Individuals within represented areas in “good standing” are eligible for 100% of travel grant funding; all others can only receive up to 50% of the maximum. Additionally, organizations wholly within a Represented Area that is not in “Good Standing” are not eligible for GPC group funding (co-programming).

At the end of each semester the GPC Secretary creates a report of the Represented Areas that attended the majority of GA Meetings, i.e., are in “good standing”, which are listed below. If you do not agree with your Represented Area’s “good standing” status you can appeal to the GPC Executive Board for a review.

To see if your Representative(s) are attending GA Meetings this semester, please see the General Assembly page. Attendance for previous semesters is also available on that page.
