**************IMPEACHMENT CLAUSE*******************

– At meeting any member can nominate someone to be impeached but must have written their concerns to give to the advisor(s) and the person you are nominating. If the violation falls under the Severity Clause:


Severity Clause:

Any actions that are damaging to GSA’s reputation and are viewed that way by the advisors (chosen at the advisor’s discretion) will have a week before the

impeachment hearing.


If the action does not fall under the Severity Clause,  they will have two weeks before the meeting.


Impeachment Process:

-The Impeachment process will be a discussion mediated by an Advisor. The advisor selects person(s) with questions and the person up for impeachment will have a chance to address all questions posed.

-At the end of the discussion, votes will be submitted on paper and counted by advisors. Included on that ballad will be prospective members who would like to take that position over if the person is impeached.


On Impeachment days, if we are having evening meetings, a dual meeting will take place. Persons cannot vote twice if attending both meetings.
