At the beginning of each academic year the SGA Coordinating Vice President reaches out to the SGA Club E-boards asking if they would like a spot in the Mailroom to hang a club poster. These spots are numbered and clubs that have responded to the CVP will receive confirmation with which number they have been assigned. These spots are chosen at random and posters can be hung up to the right of the club’s assigned number. The space size for each poster is approximately 2 ft x 2 ft.
Supplies to create a poster are available in the SGA Office (CC316).
Presence is an event app where all on campus events as well as some community events are advertised to the MCLA Community.
Club Presidents and PR Chairs have access to their club page on the app. They can keep track of attendance and participation at each event or meeting they have.

If you have not done so, make sure to download the “MCLA Events” App so you know what’s happening around campus!
Most SGA Clubs have social media accounts that help advertise their club to new students, be a way to reach out to current members, and connect with alumni. These are listed on the MCLA Website under Clubs and Organizations.

If your club creates or updates their social media accounts and would like it added to the list please send the link to the SGA Office Manager at SGA@mcla.edu.
