I agree. At school I am the Financial Vice President (aka Treasurer, but I like the other title better ) of the Speech and Debate team. The university’s Student Association funds us, and while we’re able to form our own constitution, executive board, etc without their approval, I’m the only one who actually deals directly with the SA. Consequently I am the only one they set requirements/qualifications for, the only one they authorize and the only one they officially recognize.
The last part is the most important. I am the only one whose job the university can officially connect to my group, and say they’ve approved of, so I assume that if they’d want anyone speaking for the actions of the group, it would be me.
I don’t know if these other organizations work the same way (since they’re not attached to a college student association), but it’s what I have to offer. It probably is the same way, since the treasurer has to sign paperwork, it’s someone’s dollar he’s spending, and that person would set requirements. Something like that.
