SOFO Officer Training

SOFO Authorized

It is required that treasurers be SOFO authorized in order to begin transacting with SOFO.  Presidents will be required to be authorized starting in Fall 2017.  All Presidents will need to be trained before Winter 2018.  

To become authorized, please follow the procedures below.

  1. View our Prezis below.
  2. Print and fill out the SOFO Quiz. All questions can be answered by reviewing the Pre-training presentations and our SOFO Policies and Procedures handbook.
  3. Select three training dates, in order of preference, and write the dates on your completed quiz. The training dates are posted below. Note: You only need to attend one session.
  4. Bring your quiz to SOFO and have it graded by an attendant.
  5. You will be given your live presentation date after your quiz is graded. Training dates are filled on a first come, first serve basis.

Pre-Training Presentations

Make sure to review all three of the pre-training presentations before taking the SOFO Quiz. Officers and advisors should also use these presentations as resources throughout their tenure.
