        • Be able to clarify how your organization is different from existing or similar organizations on campus
        • Be able to describe how your organization impacts Emory’s campus, the students, and the community at large


      • Create a supporting PowerPoint or document that highlights your organization’s:

        • Past and future events, programs, and initiatives
        • Event or program attendee data
        • Break down and responsibilities of the executive board

      • Be prepared for common questions you may be asked when evaluating your application:
        • How much self-generated money does your organization have?
        • How much money has your organization spent on events or programs?
        • How would College Council financing help support or grow your events and programs?
        • Have you sought other funding opportunities in the Atlanta area or through national organizations?
    3. After Your Hearing

       If you have been approved for an EFAF charter, your organization may now apply for an operational budget and supplementary funding. You will be sent additional finance information to begin using an allocated account with College Council.
      Unfortunately, we cannot approve all charter requests. In your decision letter, the Office of Organization Management will include a clear rationale for the denial and steps your organization can take to correct the issues for a future application. You may also contact the Office to schedule an appointment to discuss the decision in more detail.
      If you are denied a charter, your organization may apply again in 90 days.
      If you have been denied an EFAF charter, your organization will retain all the rights and privileges of an EFIF chartered organization.
